GOLDMAN SACHS FORMS NEW FUND

Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) said on Wednesday it had launched a $10 million fund to support the work of organizations addressing racial injustice, structural inequity and economic disparity.

The bank will match employee donations to recipient organizations, it told customers of its online bank Marcus.
An email by a Goldman employee about his experiences of racial injustice and criticizing managers at the Wall Street bank for not supporting junior bankers from diverse backgrounds went viral at the firm last week.
