People News - ABN Amro, Goldman

Exit Sign

The head of commodities at ABN Amro is leaving the Dutch bank after nearly three years to start his own venture capital fund, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Bloomberg News reports that Jan-Maarten Mulder, who joined in 2013 from oil and metals trading house Trafigura Group Pte, where he worked as global head of corporate finance, is leaving the commodities sector to invest in the financial services technology sector, the person said, asking not to be identified because the information isn’t public.

In the meantime, Reuters reports that Goldman Sachs has snagged Jeremy Taylor from Swiss commodity merchant Mercuria Energy Trading, where he was formerly the head of North American natural gas and power trading, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The sources could not immediately confirm what role he would play at Goldman Sachs, but one said he would be based in New York City.
