Goldman Sachs reported sluggish first quarter growth, and investors will have to put their faith in the management team to position the firm for the future.

Goldman Sachs (GS 1.53%) is still making money hand over fist, albeit at a slightly slower pace. The giant investment bank's first quarter revenue was only up slightly compared to the same period of the previous year as economic uncertainty weighed on businesses. Is the lack of growth at Goldman a sign that the firm is beginning to lose its magical touch?

In this video, Motley Fool banking analyst David Hanson reminds investors to take the long-term view and put faith in the Goldman Sachs management team and global brand.
