(Reuters) - Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) is ahead of its goal to generate $5 billion (4 billion pounds) in additional annual revenue by 2020, having already achieved half that amount in the first nine months of this year, the Wall Street bank said on Monday.

Goldman has made headway on plans to lend more to consumers and big businesses, and improve revenue from trading, investment banking and asset management, according to a presentation given by Chief Financial Officer Stephen Scherr at an industry conference in New York. The $5 billion target is “not the limit” of the bank’s ambitions, he said, citing other growth opportunities.
