Goldman Sachs Asset Management To Acquire Stable Value Business From Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management

Goldman Sachs Asset Management (“GSAM”) announced today it has entered into an agreement with Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (“DeAWM”) to acquire DeAWM’s stable value* business, with total assets under supervision of $21.6 billion as of June 30, 2013. The transaction represents the latest step by GSAM to grow its defined contribution (DC) franchise following last year’s acquisition of Dwight Asset Management (“Dwight”), a premier stable value asset manager based in Burlington, VT.

“GSAM’s acquisition of DeAWM’s stable value business affirms our strong commitment to providing defined contribution plan participants with capital preservation investment options,” said Eric S. Lane and Timothy J. O’Neill, co-heads of the Investment Management Division at Goldman Sachs. “The expert talent and potential client relationships that we gain from this transaction will complement our existing stable value business.”

Jerry W. Miller, Head of DeAWM Americas, said: "We are investing significantly in our Americas business and are committed to providing clients with an enhanced range of investment solutions across fixed income, equity and alternative asset classes. As we focus on growing the rest of our platform, we have opted not to participate in the consolidation of the stable value sector. Consequently, we are pleased with the sale of our stable value business to one of the leaders in the space."

This transaction follows GSAM’s July 2013 announcement of its intent to establish a new stable value collective trust.

As part of this transaction, John Axtell, DeAWM’s Head of Stable Value, and other key members of the DeAWM stable value management team will join GSAM. Prior to the closing, DeAWM will be working with clients to ensure a seamless transition to GSAM or other stable value managers. GSAM currently manages over $55 billion in defined contribution mandates, including more than $34 billion in stable value assets under supervision.**

Subject to certain conditions, the transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of 2014.
