Goldman Sachs electronic trading business has seen some new departures

After last year's series of staff exits from Goldman Sachs' New York electronic trading business, there has been a series of new disappearances this year.

Insiders say Jason Ahearn, a vice president who had been with the bank for 22 years, has left. It's not clear whether he did so voluntarily.

Two more junior staff are understood to have exited too. They are Matthew Stephens and Anass Afilial, both of whom joined in 2014.

Goldman didn't respond to request to comment on the exits. All three men remain registered with Goldman according to FINRA, but none are present on the firm's directory.

At least seven people left Goldman Sachs' New York electronic trading business at the end of last year. 

Insiders say people there are also uncertain about their futures as the firm completes its 'front to back review' ahead of a three year plan to be delivered in 2020.
