Feb 7 (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs’s Sumit Rajpal, one of three co-heads of a merged alternative investing unit at the bank, has announced his resignation, Business Insider reported on Friday, citing sources.

Rajpal and Wolfe were also slated to be lead investors for a planned buyout fund at Goldman, according to the report.
Goldman Sachs did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
Reuters reported earlier on Friday, citing sources, that Goldman plans to raise $8 billion in only its second buyout fund since the 2008 financial crisis, bolstering its ability to secure deals worldwide. (Reporting by Bharath Manjesh in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
