Sixth Street Welcomes Julian Salisbury as Partner and Co-Chief Investment Officer


Sixth Street, a leading global investment firm, today announced that Julian Salisbury will become a partner of the firm and serve as Co-Chief Investment Officer alongside Chief Executive Officer Alan Waxman and Co-President Joshua Easterly. Salisbury is expected to start in early 2024 and will help lead Sixth Street alongside Waxman, Easterly, Vice Chairman R. Martin Chavez, Co-President David Stiepleman and the firm’s Executive Committee.

Salisbury brings to Sixth Street over 25 years of experience building and leading private and public markets investing businesses. He comes to the firm after a distinguished career at Goldman Sachs, where he most recently served as Chief Investment Officer of the Asset and Wealth Management Division. In that role, he was responsible for $2.7 trillion in assets, including more than $450 billion in alternative investments. Salisbury was previously Co-Head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Global Head of the Merchant Banking Division.

Prior to forming Sixth Street in 2009, many of the firm’s co-founding partners worked closely with Salisbury at Goldman Sachs while building and leading investing businesses focused on growth investing, alternative energy, real estate, direct lending, and public markets strategies, among others.

“Sixth Street’s culture is the foundation of everything we do, and Julian is a seamless fit into our firm. He has distinguished himself time and again as a superstar investor and business builder and, more importantly, as a trustworthy and reliable partner,” said Sixth Street Chief Executive Officer Alan Waxman. “Julian understands how asset owners’ needs and objectives drive the flow of capital around the world, and he embodies our firm’s values of teamwork, integrity, entrepreneurship, and making a positive impact on our communities. We first got to know each other in 2002 while working on an investment in a Swiss cable company, and since then my partners and I have cheered Julian on as he has become one of the industry’s best investors and business leaders. We are incredibly excited to be back working with him again.”

Salisbury’s career is defined by an extraordinary range of investing, business-building, and leadership experience throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. In addition to his role as CIO of Asset and Wealth Management, he co-chaired investment committees at Goldman Sachs across all direct private strategies including growth, real estate, private credit, private equity, and infrastructure. He was named to the Goldman Sachs Management Committee in 2017 and previously co-chaired the firm’s Partnership Committee. Salisbury serves numerous charitable and community-focused organizations, including as a director on the boards of Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) and Save the Children.

“Alan and the team at Sixth Street have assembled the exact kind of organization I would want if I were creating an investment firm from the ground up. Sixth Street’s culture, platform architecture, and investment philosophy fully align with what I consider the model for how to build and operate a modern investment firm,” said incoming Sixth Street Partner and Co-Chief Investment Officer Julian Salisbury. “While leaving Goldman Sachs was a difficult decision, this was a unique opportunity to reunite with a group of people for whom I have deep, longstanding respect. Alan and I have been colleagues and friends for more than twenty years, and I am incredibly excited to work with him, Josh, David, and Marty again as a member of the powerful investing ecosystem the Sixth Street partner group has cultivated. There really is no other firm I would have considered joining, and I am excited for all that I know we will achieve together.”
