Goldman Sachs executive denies fraud at Senate hearing


The only Goldman Sachs executive charged in a US government lawsuit against the firm has denied hiding information from clients.

Fabrice Tourre told a US Senate committee he did not push an investment designed to lose value, saying "the transaction was not designed to fail... when the securities declined in value, we lost money too".
