Eric Schwartz, co-head of Goldman Sachs’ investment management division, is retiring within a few weeks.

Peter Kraus, the division’s other co-head, will remain in his position, according to Williams, who had no information about Schwartz’s replacement.
Schwartz began his career at Goldman in institutional sales before moving on to his most recent position four years ago. He will become a senior director of the firm upon his retirement.
