Before Clay, I helped build the product team for Goldman Sachs’ web platform Marquee, which caters to institutional clients.

In three years, we scaled from a one-pizza team to a ten-pizza team, increasing trades through our web and API offerings to billions of dollars.

Marquee is now one of the most sophisticated fintech platforms in institutional finance, allowing Goldman's biggest clients to read research reports, analyze their portfolios, understand their risk, and execute trades.

We also built an entire API platform, allowing developers to interact with the bank programmatically and enabling an entirely new interaction and business model for our clients.

The team is now a startup within Goldman Sachs, with product, design, and engineering dedicated to transforming the future of institutional finance. Watch our CIO-turned-CFO Marty Chavez discuss what we built.
