Goldman Sachs is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services. Goldman executes 100’s of millions of financial transactions per day, across nearly every market in the world. Learn how Goldman is harnessing knowledge, data and compute power to maintain and increase its competitive edge. In the presentation, we will highlight one significant business use-case where we are using Big Graph and graph analytics in the Compliance business for surveillance and forensics. We will describe how Goldman uses the technology to identify potential market abuse such as insider trading and market manipulation. We will also describe how the approach to information derivation is leveraged in analytics that can be used to gain business advantage.
