Goldman said to mull over job cuts

Pair Of Scissors

To cut or not to cut ?

Fox Business reports that is the question Goldman Sachs executives are preparing to answer when the firm unveils second-quarter earnings next month, and investors will be focused on the shrinking profitability of the firm’s once-mighty traders, the FOX Business Network has learned.

Goldman is weighing whether to make a formal announcement about the size and scope of potential cuts among traders, amid a sharp decline in revenue - particularly in the fixed-income business, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

This announcement could be made during the firm’s second-quarter earnings announcement, scheduled for July 15.

FOX Business earlier reported that a sharp reduction in trading revenue has sparked a panic inside Goldman Sachs as executives there brace for additional layoffs in the firm’s trading ranks unless business conditions improve.
