Goldman Sachs has been active in this business for less than a year and is already in the billion-dollar club. It's been just over nine months since Goldman Sachs launched Marcus, its newly created consumer lending venture, and the platform has been rather successful so far.

I recently spoke with Harit Talwar, head of Marcus at Goldman Sachs, and Dustin Cohn, Marcus' head of marketing, who both shared some of the details behind Marcus' early success, and where the platform could go from here.
