    Looking for an ambitious, creative, hardworking team player to originate and drive thematic and bespoke events and build relationships with corporate clients in Japan to maximize impact among key institutional investors.


    Our core value is building strong relationships with our institutional clients, which include corporations, financial service providers, and fund managers. We help them buy and sell financial products on exchanges around the world, raise funding, and manage risk. This is a dynamic, entrepreneurial team with a passion for the markets, with individuals who thrive in fast-paced, changing environments and are energized by a bustling trading floor.



    Corporate Access originates and curates content for clients via close collaboration with our team members across Asia Pacific. Our core clients are institutional investors including long-only asset managers, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds and pension plans. We also identify, prospect and build relationships with corporate clients.


    Content can be described as access to public and private corporates, industry experts, academics, government officials, bureaucrats, Goldman Sachs thought leadership and subject matter experts. Corporate Access originates and executes thematic and regional events to showcase timely topics and speakers. These events include some of Goldman Sachs’ largest flagship conferences globally, regional field trips, non-deal roadshows, corporate days and reverse inquiries.


    Corporate Access team is responsible for every aspect of the event including the agenda creation, marketing and branding, client targeting, and content merchandising for post-event distribution. Corporate Access team works closely with Sales teams within the Securities Division across Equities and Fixed Income Currency and Commodity (FICC) teams to understand clients’ needs and partner with research, banking, private wealth and the Executive Office to identify and deliver best in class content and speakers to match those clients’ needs and requests.


    In the life cycle of a trade, Corporate Access tends to sit at the beginning of that cycle, helping to drive idea generation and providing access to a variety of touch points so that an investor can make an informed investment decision in Asia and ideally, drive the execution of that investment through Goldman Sachs.


    Corporate Access is currently seeking a highly-motivated and experienced candidate to join our Tokyo office.
