Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Lloyd C. Blankfein said the firestorm over civil-fraud charges leveled by the Securities & Exchange Commission is 'certainly uncomfortable,' but urged employees to remain focused.


盛集团(Goldman Sachs Group Inc.)首席执行长劳埃德•布兰克梵(Lloyd Blankfein)说,美国证券交易委员会(Securities & Exchange Commission,简称SEC)提出的民事欺诈指控引起的大爆发"肯定令人不快",但敦促员工保持专注。



Mr. Blankfein, in his first comments since regulators charged the bank, said in a voicemail sent to employees world-wide that the firm will 'act diligently to address the complaint with facts.'


布兰克梵在发送给全球员工的语音留言中说,公司将积极行动,以事实回应指责。这是他自SEC对高盛提出指控以来首次发表评论。



Analysts are expected to confront Mr. Blankfein about the SEC complaint when the firm reports quarterly earnings on Tuesday, and he also is scheduled to testify before the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations next week.


分析师们预计会在高盛周二发布财季收益时向布兰克梵质询有关SEC指控的事宜,同时他下周还将在参议院常务调查委员会(Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations)作证。



Goldman issued two statements on Friday vowing to 'vigorously' defend itself against allegations that it failed to properlydisclose to investors in a 2007 collateralized-debt obligation that the hedge fund Paulson & Co. selected the mortgage collateral for the CDO. At the time, Paulson was betting that the CDO would lose value.


高盛上周五发表了两份声明,声言要强有力地为自己辩护。SEC指控高盛在2007年的一桩债券抵押证券(CDO)交易中未能充分向投资者披露对冲基金Paulson & Co.为该CDO挑选了贷款抵押产品。当时Paulson进行了做空该CDO的操作。



The following is a transcript of Mr. Blankfein's voicemail that was reviewed by Dow Jones Newswires:


以下为道琼斯通讯社(Dow Jones Newswires)所见的布兰克梵语音留言的文字记录:



'This is Lloyd on Sunday in New York.


我是劳埃德,周日于纽约。



Following my message to you on Friday, I wanted to update all of you and let you know that we have been taking all appropriate steps to defend the firm and its reputation.


继周五向大家发送的信息之后,我想向所有人通报最新情况,让大家知道我们正采取一切适当行动捍卫公司和公司的声誉。



As we prepare for the opening of markets around the world, I want to remind all of you of the fundamental values that have served Goldman Sachs throughout our history: teamwork, excellence and service to our clients.


在我们为打开全球各地市场做准备之时,我想提醒所有人高盛始终秉承的基本价值观:团队合作、优异卓越及服务客户。



The extensive media coverage on the SEC's complaint is certainly uncomfortable, but given the anger directed at financial services, not completely surprising.


SEC的指控被媒体广泛报导,这种情况肯定令人不快,但考虑到人们对金融服务机构的怒火,这也并非全然出乎意料。



Still, it is important to put the SEC's action in context. The core of the SEC's case is the allegation that one employee misled two professional investors by failing to disclose the role of another market participant in a transaction. Importantly, we had assumed risk in the deal and we lost money, just like the other two long investors.


不过,重要的是考虑SEC行动的背景。SEC指控的核心是,一名员工在交易中未能披露另一市场参与方的角色,从而误导了两家专业投资者。重要的是,我们在这桩交易中也承担了风险并遭受了损失,与另外两家长期投资者一样。



I will repeat what you have heard me say many times in the past: Goldman Sachs has never condoned and would never condone inappropriate activity by any of our people. On the contrary, we would be the first to condemn it and take immediate and appropriate action. Our responsibility as a financial intermediary requires it and our commitment to integrity and the firm's business principles demand it.


我要重申过去多次表达过的说法:高盛从不、未来也绝不会宽容任何内部人员的不当行为。相反,我们会头一个谴责这种行为,并立即采取适当举措。这是我们作为金融中介的责任所在,也是我们坚持诚信以及公司商业准则的要求。



We will continue to keep you posted with information about this matter. Tonight we will be sending you a summary that you may share with your clients. In the meantime, be assured that our global team, including the Board of Directors and the Management Committee, is workingdiligently to address the complaint with the facts.


我们会继续向大家通报有关此事的消息。今晚我们将向大家发送概要说明,供大家与客户共享。同时,请相信包括董事会和管理委员会在内的全球团队正积极行动,以事实应对指责。



To that end, in the next few weeks, Goldman Sachs will have the opportunity to appear before Congress and discuss our role and participation in the mortgage market more broadly. We look forward to discussing our strong record of prudent risk management.


为此,高盛未来几周将有机会在国会作证,更为广泛地讨论我们在抵押贷款市场扮演的角色以及参与度。我们期盼着阐述公司在谨慎风险管理方面的良好记录。



As you return to work on Monday morning, I ask that you maintain the level of focus on our clients that is at the heart of Goldman Sachs' success over the past 140 years.


在大家周一早上开始工作时,我要求大家保持对客户的关注,那是高盛过去140年来取得成功的核心所在。



We have faced challenges before and our people have always responded through their skills, talent and focus on our clients. We will do that now, and in the process, reaffirm everything that defines Goldman Sachs.'


我们过去也曾面对种种挑战,我们的员工一贯以其技能、才干和对客户的专注应对挑战。现在我们仍将如此,并在这个过程中再度强化高盛所特有的一切品质。
