Three equity derivatives sales and trading professionals have left Goldman Sachs in London and New York City. Ning Sun, an equity derivatives trader who joined Goldman in 2011 after graduating from Imperial College is understood to have left the firm in London. In New York, Goldman has lost Kathryn Gandolfo, an equity trader turned saleswoman who joined in 2011 and is on garden leave, plus C.T. Fisher, an associate in equity derivative sales who left in the past few days. All three had spent their entire careers at Goldman.
The exits come as headhunters say equity derivatives hiring is picking up. “There’s more going on now than there has been for a few years,” says one London-based equity derivatives headhunter. “- Banks have realised they can pick up good people for comparatively little money.”
