Goldman Sachs executives have provided fresh insight into strategic changes the bank is making to its business following two disappointing quarters for the bank, especially in its prized fixed income, currencies and commodities sales and trading division. Co-chief operating officer Harvey Schwartz outlined plans to boost revenues by $5bn and marginal return on equity by 30% over the next three years, in a presentation on Tuesday at a...
Goldman Sachs' global head of commodities trading will leave the firm at the end of November, following months of underperformance in the business. Greg Agran is retiring after 26 years with Goldman Sachs, according to an internal memo from securities division co-heads Isabelle Ealet, Pablo Salame, and Ashok Varadhan, seen by FN. Global commodities trading will now be led by co-heads Jeremy Taylor and Ed Emerson, according to the memo.
Commodities revenues at the major global investment banks fell to their lowest level in more than a decade during the first half of the year, a period that also proved a big challenge for FX traders. First-half revenues from sales and trading across oil, metals, coal, agriculture and power and gas amounted to $1.3bn at the 12 large banks tracked by data provider Coalition. That total was down 41% year-on-year and the lowest for the...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
