Goldman Sachs set new rules strict company employees banned donations to the Trump camp incubus

Goldman set new rules: strictly company employees are prohibited from the Trump campaign donations to news pictures in August the last few days, Goldman to their employees beyond all expectations set new rules: the prohibition of all senior staff to some political camps for donations, including Trump – Burns camp. In a memorandum issued in August 29th, Goldman Sachs’s Global Compliance Office said that the new regulation will come into effect on September 1st. The memorandum says: "in accordance with the company’s policy on individuals participating in political activities in the United States, all partners are considered to be" under the rule of constraint. "." This means that, from now on, all partners in Goldman Sachs are prohibited from engaging in political activities and contributing to the state or local office of the political candidate, and the federal government is not allowed to contribute to the offices of these States and places." In addition, in order to "minimize the potential reputation damage", it is particularly forbidden to donate to Donald · Trump’s campaign. The memo also provides the following is prohibited from participating in political activities including: in any case, state and local government (Federal candidates for governor, the president or the vice presidential candidate, such as Trump or Burns, ran for mayor or congressional candidate), including their political action committee (PACs). Fortune magazine first got the memo and reported that Goldman’s new rules meant removing any so-called "pay to play" donation. 4 years ago, Goldman Sachs paid $12 million to end an accusation against its own political donations. During the period, a former banker from Boston with the state’s bond underwriting business to support and donations from former Massachusetts treasurer · Cahill (Timothy Cahill) for governor. During the 2010, the securities and Exchange Commission disclosed for the first time the "pay for play" donation rule. Digital investment advisers are accused of trying to win business through political donations, such as managing public pensions and using illegitimate strategies, including political donations. Goldman Sachs says that if a financial adviser makes political contributions to public officials or political candidates, he will be prohibited from offering compensation advisory services to government clients within two years. Goldman’s explanation is: "the change in this policy also means minimizing the harm to the company’s potential reputation due to some cognitive errors.". The company tried to steer clear of the so-called "pay for play" rules, especially considering the qualifications and popularity of the company’s partners." In addition, Goldman Sachs added: "all errors related to the political activities clearly pointed out in advance will be emphasized in the following, and need to be seriously treated, any violation of the behavior may lead to disciplinary punishment." If this policy treats all political candidates alike, then the new policy should be perfectly reasonable. But there seems to be a loophole: this provision is an exception to the Hilary · Clinton and Tim · the Kaine camp is an exception. Forbes

高盛立下新规矩:严令公司员工禁止给特朗普阵营捐款 新闻配图 在8月份的最后几天,高盛集团出人意料地向自己的员工立下新规矩:禁止公司所有高层员工向某些政治阵营进行捐助,其中就包括特朗普-彭斯阵营。 在8月29日发出的一份备忘录中,高盛集团的全球合规办公室表示,这项新规定将会从9月1日起正式施行。备忘录中表示:“按照公司关于个人在美国参与政治活动的政策规定,所有合伙人都被认为是‘受规定约束者’。”这意味着从现在开始,高盛所有的合伙人“被禁止从事政治活动和(或)向政治候选人所在的州或地方办公室进行捐助,也禁止向联邦政府在这些州和地方的办公室进行捐助。”此外,为了“尽可能减少潜在的声誉损害”,特别禁止向唐纳德·特朗普的竞选阵营进行捐助。 这份备忘录顺便还提供了以下属于被禁止参与的政治活动例子,其中包括: 任何在州政府和地方政府工作的联邦候选人(竞选州长、总统或副总统的候选人,如特朗普 彭斯,或者竞选市长或国会议员的候选人),包括他们的政治行动委员会(PACs)。 《财富》杂志最先获得了这份备忘录并报道称,高盛的新规定意味着要去除任何隐含着所谓“付费玩”的捐助行为。4年前,高盛银行曾支付1200万美元来了结一项针对自己的不当政治捐助指控。期间,一位来自波士顿的前银行家拿着该州的承销业务债券去支持和捐助前马萨诸塞州司库蒂姆西·卡希尔(Timothy Cahill)竞选州长。 2010年期间,美国证券交易委员会首次揭露了“付费玩”这一捐助潜规则。数位投资顾问被指控试图通过政治捐助赢得业务,比如管理公共养老金,使用包括采用政治捐助在内的不正当策略等。高盛规定,如果一个财务顾问对公职人员或政治候选人进行政治捐助,他将被禁止在两年内向政府客户提供赔偿咨询服务。 高盛对此的解释是:“这项政策的变化也意味着尽可能降低由于部分认知错误给公司潜在声誉造成的危害。公司试图绕开所谓‘付费玩’的游戏规则,特别是考虑到公司合伙人的资历和知名度。”此外高盛还补充表示:“所有与提前明确指出的政治活动相关的错误,都会在以下特别强调并需要大家认真对待,任何违反规定的行为都可能会导致纪律处罚。” 如果这项政策对所有政治候选人都一视同仁,那么新政策应该是完全合情合理的。但是似乎却存在一个漏洞:这项规定对希拉里·克林顿和蒂姆·凯恩阵营却是个例外。 《福布斯》杂志非常仔细地报道称,“高盛新的规定并不限制对克林顿-凯恩阵营的捐助。凯恩是来自维吉尼亚州的参议员,不被认为是高盛新规定中的地方官员。尽管高盛的备忘录中表示,所有合伙人不能再向维吉尼亚州的民主党给予政治捐助,可以参考凯恩为例。高盛集团CEO劳尔德-贝兰克梵已经拒绝透露自己支持谁当选总统,但众所周知,他是希拉里-克林顿的长期支持者。劳尔德-贝兰克梵在2008年曾支持希拉里竞选,但后者最终输给了奥巴马。” 高盛拒绝对福布斯的报道置评。 然而,尽管高盛的合伙人因为这项规定会被禁止向特朗普捐助——以及他们老板广为人知的,对希拉里的偏向。但外界还是怀疑这些银行家会在任何可能的情况下,向特朗普捐助——高盛的禁令不能消除大量特朗普的潜在捐助者。高盛银行在全球有467个合伙人,超过3万名员工。事实上,由于高盛的合伙人大多是金融领域最富有的一批人,不允许他们给特朗普阵营捐助将会造成分歧。特别是在与华尔街的政治捐助赛跑过程中,特朗普一直落后于克林顿,但最近却赶了上来。现在让形势变得更具讽刺意味的是,特朗普竞选阵营筹集资金的负责人史蒂芬-姆钦(Steven Mnuchin),恰巧是高盛以前的老员工。 顺便说一句,希拉里竞选阵营的财务总监,美国商品期货交易委员会前主席加利-金斯勒(Gary Gensler)以前也是高盛集团的一位银行家。显然,加利-金斯勒已经给自己的前同事们和现任老板搭建了良好的沟通“入口。”(双刀) 炒股亏了怎么办?看这里,无论你炒A股、美股、黄金还是外汇,在这里能够获得最精准的投资情报。关注微信公众号【华尔街情报】(微信号:iMarkets) 交易累了怎么办?看这里,汇聚全球知名媒体头条,拓宽投资者交易视野。能赚钱的头条才是真头条。关注微信公众号【今日全球头条】(微信号:ifeng_igold)相关的主题文章:
