Another top Goldman Sachs trader has left the firm, possibly for the hedge fund industry.
Raj Sethi spent 14 years at Goldman, most recently as a managing director in its commodity derivatives trading group. But he left the firm earlier this week, along with Ben Jacobs, a commodities vice president, Bloomberg News reports.

During his Goldman career, Sethi ran the bank's U.S. power-trading desk and traded oil and other commodities in New York, London and Singapore.
