Goldman Sachs added the offering and auction of securities, as well as 'when-issued trading', to a list of activities that regulators and other government bodies are investigating.
Bloomberg News reports that the bank made the disclosure Tuesday in a quarterly regulatory filing, without specifying which agencies or regulators are probing the items on the list.
