People News: Goldman Sachs, Citigroup

Citi Building Sign

Jeff Psaki, a high-yield-bond trader at Goldman Sachs, left the bank, according to two people familiar with the move.

Bloomberg News reports that Psaki, a managing director at the company, departed this week, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because they aren’t authorized to speak publicly.

Jim Joyce, a leveraged-finance salesman who is also a managing director, left last month, the people said. Josh Rubinson, an investment-grade-bond trader, and Ned Oakley, a distressed-debt trader, are among other managing directors to have exited in recent weeks.

In the meantime, Reuters reports that Citigroup has promoted Kristine Braden to the position of chief country officer and corporate and investment banking head for Switzerland. She will take up the role on April 1.

She will report to Western European cluster head Zdenek Turek in her CCO capacity to both Manuel Falco, CIB boss for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, and Zdenek for her corporate and investment banking responsibilities.
