NEW YORK, April 1 (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs senior physical metals trader Scott Evans has left the U.S. investment bank in New York, almost three years after he was hired to set up the physical base metals trading desk, sources told Reuters on Friday.
He is the second high-profile member of the physical base metals team to depart the bank since mid-March.
His departure is another sign that Wall Street's No. 1 bank for commodities is struggling to expand into the capital-intensive and high-risk business dominated by commodity merchants Glencore and Trafigura.
A spokesman for the bank declined to comment.
