Gerald Cartigny

Managing Director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management

Gerald completed his studies in business economics & finance at Tilburg University in 1989. His graduation thesis led him to the investment profession. His first role was at Nationale Nederlanden, after which Gerald held various positions at ABN AMRO Asset Management for over 17 years. After a short period as a freelancer, he became responsible for the asset management unit of pension administrator MN in The Hague. In 2019, Gerald joined Goldman Sachs Asset Management where, as a Managing Director, he is now responsible for the BeNeLux. In his long career in asset management, he was, among others, a board member at DUFAS, The Dutch Fund Association and Vice Chairman of IIGCC, an institutional group of investors committed to climate change. At INSEAD, Gerald attended the Advanced Management Program and the Non-Executive Director Program.

"In the course of my more than 30-year career, I have always worked with and in international cultures. I experienced how important diversity is when making and implementing decisions. Meanwhile, various stock market data also shows that teams and companies with more diversity are more successful. I am also convinced that an inclusive society brings more economic growth and success. Goldman Sachs highly values diversity and inclusion and there is active management when it comes to creating equal opportunities in the financial sector. Early 2020, the company announced that they will not support an IPO of a company without one or more women on their board of directors. Thanks to the culture at Goldman Sachs, this is also acted upon immediately - decided today is done tomorrow. Change often takes a long time, but it starts with taking action. At Goldman Sachs, Asset Management's equity team, has already succeeded, with a team where more than 50% are women. Many women are highly educated yet less represented in senior positions. Through my contribution to the Advisory Board of Women in Financial Services (WIFS), I am happy to support the mission of equal opportunities."

I also believe that an inclusive society brings more economic growth and success. Through my contribution to the Advisory Board of Women in Financial Services (WIFS), I am happy to support the mission of equal opportunities.
