  • 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

    10 - Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, 11 - Kenneth Bellando, 28, a trader at Levy Capital, formerly investment banking analyst at JPMorgan, jumped to his death from his 6th floor East Side apartment.

    12 - Jan Peter Schmittmann, 57, the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro found dead at home near Amsterdam with wife and daughter.

      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.

        Has anyone checked to see if the market goes up when one of these guys gets whacked?

                  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.

                          Thierry Leyne, a French-Israeli banker and partner of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the disgraced former chief of the International Monetary Fund, was found dead on Thursday 10/23/2014 after apparently taking his own life in Tel Aviv.

                          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".

                                Indeed they are. It's seems likely he was eliminated to silence him, but another (admitedly slim) possibility, is key mid-tiers are being targeted to "encourage" others to talk. For such a strategy to work, you dont go after generals (they're too well protected), and you dont go after the grunts (they dont know enough and there are far too many of them). If you want to cripple an organization, you go after the captains, majors, and colonels. As I say, it's a long shot, but it's not a zero probability item either.

                                      Money changes everything:


                                      Murderous Son, Who Killed His Hedge Fund Father Over $200 Allowance, Was A Mentally-Disturbed Princeton Economics Grad
                                      Submitted by Tyler Durden on 01/06/2015 20:20 -0500

                                      The most bizarre story from the past weekend was the shocking murder of Tom Gilbert, 70, founder of the Wainscott biotech-focused hedge fund, who was shot dead in his Sutton Place apartment on Sunday Afternoon: shocking because the alleged shooter was none other than his Millennial, hence unemployed, 30-year-old son. What was certainly unclear at the time was what would be the motivation of a son to kill his successful and wealthy father, especially in such dramatic cold blood.

                                      A law enforcement source told the New York Post that Thomas Gilbert Jr. had just been told by his father that he would only receive $400 for spending money per month from that point on in addition to $2,400 per month for rent. The younger Gilbert had previously received $600 per month.

                                      And then it gets really bizarre. As the Mail reports, Junior was also charged with 21 counts of criminal possession of forgery devices after skimming device and 21 blank credit cards found at his home, and may have also burned down a rival's Hamptons mansion:

                                      The Ivy Leaguer was a mainstay at New York society black-tie events in recent years but one ex-girlfriend revealed details of his dark side on Monday.

                                      Manhattan socialite Anna Rothschild, 49, whom he dated last year, said Tommy was a loner with few friends who deeply resented his father and was obsessed with how he would 'never be good enough' for his dad.
                                      Gilbert Jr.'s ex girlfriend - twice-divorced Upper East Side socialite Anna Rothschild - told the Post that her former flame was a loner who had few friends and never got phone calls. The only person who ever called him was his mother, Miss Rothschild says.
                                      'How could a guy be that gorgeous,that wealthy,and kill his dad? This is the last thing in a million years that I thought he could do,' Miss Rothschild, 49, told the Post.
                                      His one professional aspiration was founding his own hedge fund - but he complained that his father wouldn't give him the seed money to start it, Miss Rothschild said.


                                      Gilbert Jr. has an investment company registered to his $2,400-a-month Chelsea apartment - though it's not clear the firm has any assets under investment.
                                      The company is a called Mameluke Capital - mamelukes being 13th-century Muslim slave soldiers.

                                            I'm not saying you are right or wrong about all of this. But by reading some of these articles on the deaths, these people led a highly-stressful lifestyle that included long hours with little sleep. Drugs were involved in some cases. Now you are including articles on a 22-year-old entry level worker. I don't see any signs of conspiracy yet.

                                              Agree,it seemed like a conspiracy-and some of these could be hits-,but its morphed into a thread on the nature of business,and the pressures that workers have to go through.
                                              Anyway there's something going on...

                                                Well, tell me what you think is going on? I'm not going to discount what you say, however, I may look into it myself.

                                                    I wouldn't be surprised if the total rose to 91

                                                      In early November, Mikhail Lesin - a close ally of Putin and the man credited with inspiring the creation of Russia Today - was found dead on an upper floor in The Dupont Circle hotel. The death was said to be the result of a heart attack. We were skeptical, and for a reason: according to the office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Lesin's death was the result of “blunt force injuries of the head.” In other words, he was murdered.

                                                            A prominent 47-year-old hedge fund trader was killed when he jumped from a luxury apartment building on Manhattan's Upper West Side, in an apparent suicide, authorities told the NY Post.

                                                            Kevin Bell, most recently head of Credit Risk at Arrowgrass Capital, jumped from a ninth-floor kitchen window at the Apthorp building on West End Avenue near West 79th Street around 7:20 a.m. He landed on scaffolding that was set up in front of the building and was pronounced dead at the scene.

                                                            Bell, a graduate of Duke University, worked at Arrowgrass Capital Partners, where he was head of credit risk, according to his LinkedIn page. Arrowgrass managed $4.5 billion as of mid-2016. It is run by former Deutsche Bank traders Henry Kenner and Nicholas Niell, and in 2015 had been stocking its ranks with Saba alumni after losing several employees in its credit-trading group in April. The firm focuses on strategies including corporate distressed assets in the U.S. and Europe.

                                                              A 56-year-old partner at Paulson & Co., who was best known for losing billions of his clients' money to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme when he ran the Fairfield Greenwich fund of funds, leaped to his death from the luxury Sofitel hotel in midtown Manhattan. Charles W. Murphy was wearing a dark business suit when he plunged to his death from the 24th floor of the 45 W. 44th St. building at around 4:42pm on Monday[3/27/2017].

                                                              The father-of-two financier, who was married to his second wife, plummeted 20 floors before hitting a fourth floor terrace, according to the NYPD, and died at the scene according to the Mail.

                                                              The Sofitel hotel where Murphy killed himself made headlines in 2011, when French politician and head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was accused of raping a maid in one of the hotel's suites. Three months later, all charges were dismissed. In 2012, he settled a lawsuit with the maid.

                                                              Murphy is now the fourth person connected to Madoff to commit suicide in the years following the Ponzi scheme scandal. French aristocrat Rene Thierry Magon De La Villehuchet was found dead in 2008 just after the news broke. His AIA Group lost $1.5 billion. Ex-U.S. Army major William Foxton, 65, killed himself in 2009. A year later, Madoff's son Mark was found dead after he hanged himself in his New York apartment.
