Goldman Sachs Group Inc. became the latest bank to be investigated over employee communications over unapproved messaging services.

The New York-based company is cooperating with the Securities and Exchange Commission and producing documents related to a probe into “compliance with records preservation requirements relating to business communications sent over electronic messaging channels that have not been approved by the firm,” it said in a regulatory filing Friday.
