New York, N.Y., May 19, 2009 – Williams Capital Management, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The
Williams Capital Group, L.P., announced today that The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc (NYSE:GS) selected
Williams Capital to manage $1 billion of U.S treasury and government agency securities.
The investment will provide Williams Capital with a significant increase in its assets under management.
Because many prospective investors require that managers have a minimum amount of assets under
management before they invest, this investment is expected to be very significant in helping Williams Capital
grow its business.
Chris Williams, CEO of The Williams Capital Group, said, “Goldman Sachs’ investment will enable us to
bring our conservative investment strategies to a wider group of prospective clients who had previously been
unable to consider investing with us.”
Goldman Sachs Treasurer Liz Beshel commented, “Our balance sheet is very liquid. Chris brought us a
timely proposal that helps us manage our liquidity position while also providing the added benefit of helping
Williams Capital grow its asset management business. We look forward to continuing our long-standing
relationship with Chris and his team.”
