Post-financial crisis regulations hit Goldman Sach’s businesses harder than other banks. But the Wall Street firm has adapted. In the past year profits have come roaring back. The firms’ return on equity, a key profit metric for financial firms, recently neared 13%, more than double what it was a few years ago, but still far below the 20% it used to be before the financial crisis. Nonetheless, investors still see Goldman as too complex, and its shares have lagged rivals. The firm still needs to either scale back or exit some of its businesses, as more post-financial crisis regulations go into effect.
