CAMDEN — James McCarthy, managing director and co-head of global liquidity management business for Goldman Sachs Asset Management, will deliver the keynote address during the 2014 commencement ceremony for the Rutgers School of Business–Camden.
The event occurs at noon on Wednesday, May 21, at the Susquehanna Bank Center on the Camden waterfront.
“I am honored to be invited to address the Class of 2014,” says McCarthy, who earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from the Rutgers–Camden business school in 1986. “As an AACSB-accredited business school, the Rutgers School of Business–Camden offers students an outstanding return on their investment. When I have had the opportunity to be back on campus, I have witnessed an inspiring learning environment that draws a passionate faculty that challenges a diverse group of students to become future leaders.”

He joined the firm in 1995 as a vice president and portfolio manager and was named managing director in 2004. McCarthy is currently a member of the Goldman Sachs’ Investment Strategy Committee.
Prior to joining the firm, McCarthy worked at Nomura Securities, where he was a vice president and head adjustable rate MBS trader.
