Sir, I know that Goldman Sachs is renowned for its financial ingenuity, but I was unaware that its talents extended to physics as well (“ Goldman leases Frankfurt office for post-Brexit future”, October 8). Fitting 1,000 people into 10,000 sq ft of office space would mean an average of 10 sq ft per employee — that’s 93 per cent less than the North American average of 151 sq ft per employee, according to the corporate real estate think-tank CoreNet Global.

Ingenuity indeed!
