Goldman Sachs Advisor Solutions Brings Alts Lending Feature to RIA Clients

Due to a new program from Goldman Sachs, eligible clients of registered investment advisers will now be able to borrow against specific types of alternative investment positions in their portfolio.

Goldman Sachs Advisor Solutions, which offers independent advisers access to institutional-grade solutions and custody services, announced a new lending feature designed to help eligible clients of registered investment advisers access greater liquidity.

GSAS’ lending feature is designed to meet the growing needs of sophisticated investors. Recent reports have predicted RIAs will expand their alternative investments allocation by nearly a third, according to Goldman Sachs. Working with Goldman Sachs Bank USA, GSAS has developed a modern opportunity tailored for advisers in this evolving investment landscape.

While custodians traditionally offered lending against publicly marketable securities, advisers working with GSAS can now provide their clients with greater flexibility by borrowing against certain alternative investments. GSAS’ collaboration with businesses across the firm demonstrates commitment to the One GS RIA Strategy formally announced in September 2023 and led by Adam Siegler.

“Complex financial situations require solutions which empower RIAs with choice and greater flexibility in managing the assets and debits in their clients’ portfolios. Our ability to offer this alternatives-based lending solution through our custodial platform dedicated to RIAs is incredibly exciting,” said Jeremy Eisenstein, managing director at GSAS.

“Providing independent advisers access to a broad menu of institutional-grade solutions truly differentiates the end client experience.”
