In 2018, Moorthy joined Goldman Sachs as a Partner, from JP Morgan, to build cash management tools, deposit accounts and other product offerings for big companies. Moorthy has led Goldman in creating the cash management software. The tool was first used internally and is now being offered to clients.
Moorthy first joined Goldman in 2007, as global technology head of margin risk for its Global Securities Services Division. In 2014, while a Managing Director, he left to join JP Morgan. Earlier, he worked at CheckFree Services Corp., now part of Fiserv, and Netcom Systems. He started his career as a systems analyst at Imagine Technologies.
He is one of the rare Indians to climb the corporate ladder in the U.S. without an advanced degree from an American University. He earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, with honors in mathematics and engineering, from the Birla Institute of Technology & Sciences, Pilani. He holds six patents in financial technology, the latest from 2011.
In his Letter to My Younger Self, a 2019 blog post at Goldman, Moorthy lists the five pieces of advice he wished he had received early in his career: be mindful, deliberate and present; innovation is redefining a problem under constraints; surround yourself with people who are smarter than you and different from you; actively choose to be happy; and every day is a new opportunity.
