The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, discusses topics around the investing world.

Goldman Sachs has been in the news because of the public resignation missive of an employee, who detailed a declining corporate culture and a focus on putting Goldman's own interests ahead of its clients'. Its shares reacted negatively that day, and the water cooler has been abuzz, but Anand doesn't see what's so shocking. And he doesn't think it'll have much of an effect on Goldman's future.

The financial heavies are getting a lot of press these days, and much of it is negative. But there's one small bank that's flying under the radar, and it has some of the best operational numbers you'll ever see. The Motley Fool featured it in its brand-new free report: "The Stocks Only the Smartest Investors Are Buying." We invite you to download a free copy.
