Goldman Sachs Asset Management announced on May 6, 2022, that Sean Butkus, one of the three named portfolio managers on Goldman Sachs Small Cap Value, no longer has that position. He remains an analyst—what Goldman Sachs considers a “sector portfolio manager”—for that strategy. The other experienced portfolio managers, Rob Crystal and Sally Pope Davis, remain in place. The strategy retains its People rating of Above Average and its Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Bronze for all share classes except the costly C shares, which are rated Neutral.
