Goldman warns staff to keep quiet

European Flag

Goldman Sachs has warned its staff against endorsing either side of the European Union (EU) referendum campaign despite donating hundreds of thousands of pounds to the group leading the push to avoid Brexit.

Sky News have obtained a memo circulated on Wednesday to 6,000 Goldman Sachs employees in Europe, the Middle East and Africa - most of whom are based in London.

It said that the firm's decision not to register with the Electoral Commission as a campaigning organisation meant that employees should "not distribute any material which could be seen as campaigning for either outcome or endorsing the messages of either campaign".

The instruction is designed to ensure that Goldman staff do not fall foul of the Electoral Commission's guidelines on permitted activities by businesses ahead of the 23 June poll.
