The following is a brief profile of the bankers that died so far this year:

All men were in their prime working years. Their family and friends were completely surprised. Most of them were involved with some form of foreign exchange or the trading of derivatives. Circulation centers on one target company, which some amount of the men were employed by – JP Morgan.

  • William Broeksmit – Former Deutsche Bank and Merrill Lynch executive. He had close ties to the Co-Chief Executive of Deutsche Bank. He was found dead in London on January, 26 2014.
  • Monday, January 27th, 2014. Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym died after falling from a hotel in Bangkok. Authorities say it is a possible suicide. Slym, 51, had attended a board meeting at Tata Motors’ Thailand unit in the Thai Capital and was staying with his wife in a room o the 22nd floor of the Shangri-La Hotel. Hotel staff found his body on Sunday.
  • Tuesday, January 28 2014.  A Senior manager at JP Morgan’s European Headquarters in London jumped to his demise. The 39 year old, Gabriel Magee, was Vice President in the investment bank’s technology department.
  • Wednesday, January 29th 2014. Chief Economist for Russell Investments fell down a 50 foot embankment and died. Police said it appears he took his own life by jumping from a ramp near the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Tacoma, Washington.
  • UK based Communications Director at Swiss Re AG died. The cause of death has not been made public.
  • Richard Talley. The founder of American Title Services.
  • February 13, 2014. Ryan Crane, a 37 year old JP Morgan Executive director of equities died in Stamford, CT. We are waiting for the toxicology report to determine the cause of death.
  • David Bird, 55, is missing. He is a 20 year veteran of the Wall Street Journal who covered Commodities Markets. He was last seen leaving his New Jersey home January 11, 2014.
  • Tuesday, February 18th 2014. A 33-year old JP Morgan worker from Hong Kong. Police tried to talk him down, but he jumped to his death from the JP Morgan roof. Witnesses say his body sat displayed for at least four hours.


No one knows for sure why this is happening, but there are a lot of questions to be asked:

What was their work load like at the time of death?

How much stress were they under?

What were they fearing?

Were they depressed?

Could mental and physical exhaustion be plausible?

Did it have something to do with their employers actions?

What in the world is going on with JP Morgan? (We know that the US Senate has been keeping a close eye on JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs.
