We've done it before: Goldman tells investors why they should trust its ambitions

The bank says it remains committed to excellence, but its biggest pitch seems to be that it doesn’t feel the need to be the leader in everything it does any more. That may give it the flexibility it needs as it develops into new areas, but will it be enough to satisfy shareholders?

How would that make things better for investors? And why should anyone believe him?
