the changes Schwartz highlighted focused on the FICC division, where executives
plan to work more with asset managers and banks, an initiative through which
they believe they could earn $600m more in revenues over the next three years.

“We’re not satisfied with our recent performance in FICC – we’re intensely
focused on it and we know you are as well,” Schwartz said in his
presentation, adding that the market environment in the third quarter for FICC
was “a pretty challenging environment for us”. Goldman Sachs saw FICC

it can generate an extra $1bn of FICC trading revenue annually, an extra $2bn

business Marcus), an extra $1bn from investment management and $500m extra from both
