Another big beast is moving on from Goldman Sachs’ fixed income sales business.
Sources say that Dalinç Ariburnu, a partner and head of fixed income and currency sales in Europe, is retiring from the bank.
Goldman didn’t immediately respond to a request to comment.
Ariburnu is not the first to go: as we reported last month, senior fixed income salespeople have been leaving Goldman Sachs in their droves – on both sides of the Atlantic. Nor is Goldman the only bank losing fixed income sales staff: Deutsche has lost several of its senior rates salespeople too.
Jim Esposito is reportedly replacing Ariburnu at Goldman. Esposito was named head of Goldman’s strategy division in February and is seen internally as a likely contender to run the bank’s securities division in future. Ariburnu joined Goldman in October 2009. Prior to that, he was global head of emerging markets at Deutsche Bank.
