Hedge Fund Rising Stars: David Solomon

David Solomon
Goldman, Sachs & Co.


David Solomon is the ultimate networker. That was true when he was a corporate attorney at Schulte Roth & Zabel, the New York–based law firm expert in hedge funds, and after he went to work for ­Goldman, Sachs & Co.’s prime brokerage group. At Schulte Roth, Solomon represented private partnerships, investment partnerships and commodities pools but wanted a more hands-on role. He joined Goldman in 1999 to help start the new capital introduction team. Post-2008, hedge funds have  needed capital-­introduction help more than ever. As global co-head of cap-intro, Solomon, with a master’s in international affairs from Columbia University and a law degree from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. ­Cardozo School of Law, provides just that. It doesn’t hurt that Solomon, 39, knows almost everyone of note in the hedge fund industry. The quality of his network helps keep ­Goldman’s prime brokerage one of the best.
