Un membru al echipei de conducere a Goldman Sachs ar putea fi incriminat pentru furnizarea de informatii confidentiale despre Apple catre un fond de investitii

  Goldman Sachs este una dintre cele mai mari si mai puternice institutii financiare din SUA, ea avand o influenta foarte mare asupra modului in care evolueaza economia americana. Fiind o companie atat de puternica si avand atat de multa inflenta, angajatii sai sunt in mod constant verificati de autoritatile federale americane si David Loeb, seful diviziei equity(din New York) pentru Asia, ar fi fost inregistrat in timp ce oferea informatii confidentiale despre mai multe companii americane catre un fond de investitii.

David Loeb, Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s head of Asia equity sales in New York, is heard on a U.S. wiretap passing information to Raj Rajaratnam about Apple Inc., Intel Corp. and Hewlett-Packard Co., Gary Naftalis, a lawyer for Rajat Gupta, told a judge.

“He’s on a tape giving out information” about those companies, Mr. Naftalis told U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff outside the presence of the jury.

  Apple, Intel si HP sunt cele trei companii despre care Loeb ar fi vorbit cu Raj Rajaratnam si exista sanse ca evolutia lor pe bursa americana sa fi fost influentata de actiunile companiei conduse de cel din urma. Loeb a fost subiectul unei investigatii care a durat cateva luni de zile si el ar fi fost inregistrat in timp ce oferea aceste informatii catre Raj Rajaratnam, iar daca va fi inculpat si gasit vinovat va petrece probabil cativa ani in spatele gratiilor. Deocamdata Loeb nu este acuzat oficial de autoritatile ameriane, insa in baza dovezilor probabil va fi luata si aceasta masura.

Mr. Naftalis told the judge that prosecutors were withholding exculpatory evidence he said could help his client. Mr. Gupta, who ran the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. from 1994 to 2003, is on trial for passing multiple insider tips to Galleon Group co-founder Mr. Rajaratnam in a conspiracy that ran from 2007 to January 2009. Mr. Rajaratnam is serving an 11-year prison sentence for insider trading. Mr. Gupta, an ex-Goldman Sachs director, denies wrongdoing.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Reed Brodsky told Judge Rakoff that Mr. Loeb “provided Intel, Apple and Hewlett Packard information to Mr. Rajaratnam.” It’s the first time the government has publicly named Mr. Loeb and confirmed that the U.S. has evidence that he gave information about Apple, Intel and Hewlett-Packard to Mr. Rajaratnam.
