  • A dozen finance types dead in the last few months,are these random events,or is there something sinister going on?

    Is a cluster of suicides,and "accidents" in a particular field unusual,or just eerie coincidence?
    This brings the sad list of senior financial services exectives who have died in the last
    few months to 12:

    1 - William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London, on January 26th.

    2 - Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.

    3 - Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London on January 27th.

    4 - Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.

    5 - Richard Talley, the 57 year old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was found dead earlier this month after apparently shooting himself with a nail gun.

    6 - Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.

    7 - Ryan Henry Crane, a 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago. No details have been released about his death aside from this small obituary announcement at the Stamford Daily Voice.

    8 - Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ in Hong Kong this week.

    9 - James Stuart Jr, Former National Bank of Commerce CEO, found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death

      This proves it again that it's a high risk - high reward occupation.

      Yep, seems like "the Group" was sending the underlings a message when you can't "Corzine" enough of your clients phyz Gold to cover withdraws. Notice they sent the Wolf to not only take out the banker, but his family too, leaving just one to tell the tale perhaps .... So, the rest of you fuckers better do whatever it takes to keep the Gold Ponzi balls in the air... Whatever it takes,or your wife and kids get it too ... Think that message is getting through ?

        Please do not forget David Bird of the Wall Street Journal. He went missing in January never to be
        heard from again.

        only a banker can get the possible family tragedy.
        Wall Street Journal only get a possible missing tragedy.

                  Liechtenstein Banker Shot Dead in Reported Investment Feud
                  By Jan-Henrik Foerster and Carolyn Bandel Apr 7, 2014 4:13 PM ET

                  A Liechtenstein banker was shot dead after a feud involving an investment fund, and police said they believe the alleged killer later committed suicide.

                  The 48-year-old man was shot in the underground garage of a financial institution in Balzers at 7:30 a.m. local time, the Liechtenstein police said on their website today. Neither the victim nor the institution was identified in the statement. The deceased was Juergen Frick, CEO of Bank Frick & Co. AG, according to Switzerland

                    The only problem with this theory is that while some bankers have died recently, there's like tens of thousands of them around the globe. The death rate isn't anything out of the norm.

                      In the beginning it was banker suicides. Then about two weeks ago, suicides were replaced by outright murders after the execution-style killing of the CEO of a bank in otherwise sleepy (and tax evasive) Lichtenstein by a disgruntled client. Then on Friday[4/18/2014] news hit of another execution-type murder in just as sleepy, if not so tax evasive, Belgium, where in the city of Vise, a 37-year-old Director at BNP Paribas Fortis was murdered alongside his wife and a 9 year old nephew in a premeditated and orchestrated drive-by shooting.

                        52 Year-Old French Banker Jumps To Her Death In Paris (After Questioning Her Superiors]

                        Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/24/2014 18:38 -0400

                        There have been 13 senior financial services executives deaths around the world this year, but the most notable thing about the sad suicide of the 14th, a 52-year-old banker at France's Bred-Banque-Populaire, is she is the first female. As
                        Le Parisien reports, Lydia (no surname given) jumped from the bank's Paris headquarter's 14th floor shortly before 10am. FranceTV added that sources said "she questioned her superiors before jumping out the window," but the bank denies it noting that she had been in therapy for several years.

                          A senior Deutsche Bank regulatory lawyer has been found dead in New York after committing suicide, New York City officials said on Saturday.
                          Calogero Gambino, 41, was found on the morning of Oct. 20,2014 at his home in the New York borough of Brooklyn and pronounced dead on the scene, according to New York City police.
                          He had been closely involved in negotiating legal issues for Deutsche Bank such as a probe by regulators of banks over allegations they manipulated the Libor benchmark interest rate as well as currency markets.
                          He died by hanging, said Julie Bolcer, spokeswoman for the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner. The manner of death was suicide.

                            The latest in banking news:
                            British banker Rurik Jutting suspected of 'American Psycho'
                            killings in Hong Kong

                            By Tom Phillips, Hong Kong and Josie Ensor
                            3:57PM GMT 02 Nov 2014

                            A British man has been charged with the murder of two women who were found naked inside his luxury Hong Kong apartment.

                            The reported crime scene recalled Bret Easton Ellis' book "American Psycho" where numerous barbaric crimes occur in the apartment of a Wall Street investment banker.

                            Mr Jutting studied at Winchester College, an independent boys school in Hampshire, before continuing his studies at Cambridge University where he became secretary of the history society.

                            He appears to have worked for Barclays in London between 2008 and 2010 before moving to the United States to
                            work for Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
                            The company seconded him to Hong Kong in the summer of 2013. His last known address in the UK was in Wapping.

                            One co-worker at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong, who declined to be named, described Mr Jutting as someone who "talked very loud and made ---- loads of money".
