Prior to joining Zeitlin, Karl spent over eight years working at Goldman Sachs & Co. where he most recently co-managed a $5 billion dollar portfolio of market-linked investments and was responsible for the structured product transactions executed across the firm’s private client franchise. Earlier in his career, Karl worked in the private wealth management group advising high net worth individuals, families, and foundations on a wide range of topics including strategic portfolio allocation, tactical implementation recommendations, and long-term investment objectives.
