Mindich began working at Goldman Sachs after high school, and spent summers at the firm while earning a degree in economics at Harvard College. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1988 and spent 15 years at the firm in two main roles: leading the firm’s equities risk arbitrage business and managing the firm’s equities division. In 1994, at age 27, he became the youngest partner in the history of Goldman Sachs. He led the equities arbitrage department from 1992 until 2000. In 2000, he became co-chief operating officer of the equities division and in 2002 became co-head of the equities division and a member of the Goldman Sachs Management Committee. In 2003, Mindich joined the Executive Office as senior strategy officer and chair of the Firmwide Strategy Committee.
In late 2004, Mindich left Goldman to launch his own hedge fund, named Eton Park Capital Management, one of the largest fund launches in history at $3.5 billion. Eton Park is a global, multi-disciplinary investment firm.
