Marcus by Goldman Sachs: Digital Banking Built for the Consumer

Many fintech firms struggle to gain scale, funding and brand recognition in an increasingly crowded banking ecosystem. Leveraging the power of digital technology and over a century’s worth of brand expertise, Goldman Sachs introduced its consumer banking platform, Marcus in 2016.

Through acquisitions, partnerships with firms like Apple and Amazon, and significant organic growth, Marcus has grown into a multiproduct platform, with $80 billion in deposits across the US and UK, $7 billion in consumer loan and card balances and millions of customers — all without the traditional brick-and-mortar branch model.

We are joined today by Dustin Cohn, Head of Brand and Marketing over Consumer and Investment Management for Goldman Sachs and the Marcus brand. On today’s episode, Dustin discusses the building of a new digital banking brand within a legacy financial firm and the mission of creating a unique customer experience.
