The investment strategy group at Goldman Sachs has invited clients to a conference call regarding financial trends. [Forbes] The call will focus on Bitcoin—an asset that the investment bank has until now rejected.
The call is scheduled for May 27 and will include Sharmin Mossavar-Rhami and Jan Hatzius, both investment and economic specialists with the firm. Additionally, Jason Furman from Harvard Kennedy Business School will join the call.

The attention on Bitcoin represents a sea-change for the firm. In 2018, Mossavar-Rhami famously said that Bitcoin had no value, declaring at the time:
We expect further declines in the future given our view that these cryptocurrencies do not fulfill any of the three traditional roles of a currency.
The prediction at that time was accurate, as the price of Bitcoin continued to decline through 2018. However, the company began changing its tone in early 2019.
