Goldman Sachs Group LP, Wall Street's largest investment banking partnership, said it will buy a 22% stake in Wit Capital Group Inc., an on-line broker that helps companies sell stock on the Internet.

The investment comes after Goldman set up a committee to forge an Internet strategy before it goes public later this year.
