GS SSG Multi Strategy Investing

Hi guys - I was wondering if anyone knows anything about Goldman's SSG Multi Strategy Investing arm?
There is quite a bit of information on WSO pertaining to other less liquid arms (asset investing, private capital) however MSI has not been discussed. It would be interesting to know what strategies they run and how much risk they actually take. From the description on their job posting it seems to me that it's essentially a prop book:

"SSG's Multi-Strategy Investing Group (MSI) invests across the capital structure in public companies (e.g. bank debt, bonds, or equity) and will also invest in opportunistic private transactions. MSI invests in a wide variety of industries and operates with a value-oriented investing mindset. "

Would appreciate any input.

SB's in advance,

Hasn't been on fire recently. One senior exec left for BX GSO. Heard group also got moved around with the recent consolidation with MBD and corp investing.
