The investor group buying the stake includes BofA Merrill Lynch, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citadel and Lightyear Capital, Goldman said on Wednesday.
Goldman did not disclose the deal value.
Rishi Nangalia, who managed Goldman’s electronic trading business development group, has been appointed as REDI’s chief executive.
