Ex-Goldman analyst seeks £11.5m in London court


A former Goldman Sachs analyst who says the bank discriminated against him because of his attention deficit condition is seeking as much as £11.5m ($14.9m) in a London court.

Bloomberg News reports that Kwasi Afrifa, who worked alongside traders in the equities and credit markets, said that he was compelled to resign in May 2018 after the bank’s "stubborn refusal" to take steps to ease his working life. He said that he lost the chance of a lucrative career in investment banking and is claiming an award that would be more than triple the highest ever payout at a U.K. employment tribunal, Goldman Sachs’ lawyers said.

Goldman Sachs lawyers said that Afrifa was a poor performer and he would have likely been dismissed by early 2019 at the latest if he hadn’t resigned.
