New York state's financial regulator has sent a second request to Goldman Sachs Group for information about its fundraising for Malaysian sovereign wealth fund 1MDB, a person familiar with the matter said.
The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS), in a letter sent late on Thursday, also requested a meeting with Goldman on or before Aug. 31, the person said. The request follows a letter the regulator sent to Goldman last month seeking details on the matter.
The source was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
"We are aware of their interest in this matter and have been in dialogue with them on it for some time," a Goldman Sachs spokesman said.
The Wall Street bank's work with 1MDB is under the spotlight after the U.S. government alleged that billions of dollars earmarked for investments were diverted for the personal use of 1MDB officials, their relatives and associates.
