Goldman Sachs's former resident of fabulousness is going back to school.
The Securities and Exchange Commission alleged in a 2010 complaint that Goldman Sachs and Fabrice Tourre, 33, who is on unpaid leave, defrauded investors in a collateralized debt obligation known as Abacus 2007-AC1. The regulator identified Tourre as a “resident of Kigali, Rwanda,” in court papers filed March 21 in Manhattan federal court. Tourre had been in the African nation’s capital working for a non-governmental organization before beginning his studies at the University of Chicago, according to a person familiar with his travels who declined to be identified because the matter isn’t public. “Tourre is a U.S. resident studying for a Ph.D. in economics at the University of Chicago,” his lawyer, Pamela Rogers Chepiga, said in a statement March 21. Steve Koppes, a university spokesman, said Tourre has been enrolled in the program since September.
