Goldman Sachs (GS) has become ensnared in the investigation into the suspicious trading of Heinz (HNZ) options ahead of the announcement of its $28B buyout, with the account that carried out the trade owned a "private wealth client" of the bank. Goldman, which hasn't been accused of wrongdoing, said it doesn't have "direct access" to information about who owns the account. Given Swiss secrecy laws, the SEC will have a job finding out.
