Goldman Sachs Group Inc is attempting to acquire acquired funds to dissuade important bankers from leaving, according to Bloomberg News on Wednesday, citing persons who are familiar with the matter.

According to a source, the bank is contemplating confiscating proprietary stock of executives Omer Ismail and David Stark, typically reserved for misconduct attempts. Both had left the Wall Street bank last year.

"Equity awards are governed by the agreement signed by the recipient. In each case mentioned by Bloomberg, there were explicit terms which were upheld," a spokesperson for the bank said.

According to reports, Goldman Sachs is also receiving unvested compensation from executives Gregg Lemkau and Eric Lane who left the bank for businesses that would be considered clients.

As the economy recovers, banks around the world have had to come up with extra benefits, such as higher pay and bonuses, to attract and retain talent.
