    Exclusive: Goldman Sachs plans shift from revenue goal at first investor day

    More than two years ago, Goldman Sachs Group Inc told investors it would find $5 billion in fresh annual revenue by 2020. The new targets, to be outlined by Chief Executive David Solomon's management team in January at Goldman's first-ever investor day, could include a broad efficiency ratio and profitability measures, four sources familiar with the matter said. The change of focus signals that Goldman wants to match rivals that disclose progress toward broader targets, and satisfy demand among investors for transparency across all the bank's businesses, according to the sources, who cautioned that plans for the investor day are still taking shape and could change.

    NY regulator vows to investigate Apple Card for sex bias

    A New York regulator is investigating Goldman Sachs for possible sex discrimination in the way it sets credit limits. The investigation follows a series of viral tweets by entrepreneur and web developer David Heinemeier Hansson about algorithms used for the Apple Card, which Goldman Sachs manages in partnership with Apple. Hansson said the card offered him a credit limit 20 times greater than it gave to his wife, even though she has a higher credit score.

    Apple co-founder bashes credit card

    Apple"s new credit card has been hit with charges of sexism, and now compliants are coming from the company"s co-founder. Steve Wozniak says he got 10 times the credit limit his wife received even though they do not hold separate assets or bank or credit accounts. The criticism behind the iPhone maker's credit card began Thursday, when entrepreneur David Heinemeier Hansson tweeted that the card gave him 20 times more credit than his wife had received. Apple launched its highly anticipated titanium credit card in August in partnership with Goldman Sachs. Apple didn't respond to a Reuters request for comment. But Goldman said card applicants were independently evaluated according to income and creditworthiness. The investment bank said it took into account factors such as personal credit scores and personal debt but insisted it hasn't and will not "make decisions based on factors like gender." Now, regulators are looking into the charges. New York's Department of Financial Services said it's starting an inquiry into Goldman's credit card practices. Its superintendent says the law bars algorithms from discriminating against protected classes of individuals. Goldman Sachs shares fell roughly 1% in early trading Monday; Apple shares were flat.
