Senior Goldman Sachs woman resurfaces at small boutique after 17 years
Maud Le Moine seems like the sort of person Goldman Sachs would have liked to keep. Having joined the firm as a summer intern after graduating from the London School of Economics, Le Moine spent 17 years at Goldman Sachs and was promoted to head of supranational, sub-sovereign and agency (SSA) debt capital markets in Europe in 2020.
However, Le Moine was let go from Goldman last year. She's just arrived Lion's Head Global Partners, a boutique banking, advisory and asset management firm in London with £5m in revenues in 2022.
Given Goldman's focus on female employees, Le Moine's exit seems a shame. It's equally a shame that Le Moine, having toiled at the firm for nearly two decades, never made managing director and won't be around for the next round of MD promotions in November.
At Lion's Head, she'll work with Christopher Egerton-Warburton, an ex-Etonian partner at the firm who himself spent 14 years at Goldman before leaving in 2007.
Lion's Head made a nearly £600k net loss in 2021. However, this was followed by a circa £600k net profit in 2022.
