Goldman will likely integrate w/ it's own offering. Given that they don't custody 401(k)s it's hard to make the case that they will funnel assets into their own products through NextCapital. The opportunity is bigger than asset management sales, it's about influencing the end client (employees) throughout their entire lifecycle and gaining access to data.
