FORMER World Bank president Robert Zoellick is to head up Goldman Sachs’ board of international advisers, the investment bank said yesterday.

Goldman hopes Zoellick’s experience in emerging markets and development economics will help it and its clients operate in high-growth regions.

The Washington DC-based job will see Zoellick offer advice on global strategic issues, overseeing a panel of 16 international advisers.

“Bob Zoellick has extraordinary knowledge of the global economy and has devoted himself to helping emerging economies realise more of their potential,” said Goldman’s chief Lloyd Blankfein.
