      It also said that it intends to grow its consumer loans and card balances to over $20 billion in the same period. Hitting those targets would be an impressive leap from where Goldman currently stands: As of the year ended December 31, 2019, Goldman's consumer deposits totaled $60 billion, and it had issued $7 billion worth of loans and credit card balances during Q4 2019.Scaling its two main consumer products has not been without struggles for Goldman Sachs:Marcus has seen heavy costs since its launch. Marcus saw $1.3 billion in losses between its 2016 debut and October 2019, driven largely by spending on acquisitions, cloud storage space, and tech talent hiring, and the bank wrote off $155 million in the first six months of 2019. While these costs weren't unexpected — Goldman CFO Stephen Scherr previously stated that 2019 and 2020 represent “the depth of [Goldman's] investment cycle” for building new businesses and digital platforms — they still weigh down Goldman's progress toward profit in consumer banking.The development of Apple Card cost $300 million. And on top of the financial costs, Goldman reassigned thousands of its engineers to finish the product on time for its launch. Then, shortly after the card's launch, it faced an initial investigation by the New York Department of Financial Services to determine whether its creditworthiness algorithm demonstrates gender bias.But the long-awaited release of the Marcus app could help spur Goldman toward its goals. The bank finally unveiled an app for Marcus customers earlier this month, a surprising three years after Marcus itself launched, signifying the bank's deepening commitment to retail banking.Prior to the launch of the app, Marcus customers could only handle transfers and loan payments through Goldman's website. The new app could be instrumental to Marcus' growth trajectory, as it vastly enhances ease of use for the digital bank and could persuade prospective clients that had previously been dissuaded by Marcus' lack of an app to give the offering a try.Want to read more stories like this one?
