BREAKING NEWS: Banker, 39, plunges to his death from headquarters of JP Morgan in Canary Wharf

Amazing. Markets drop a piddly few percent and, for these people, the world probably seems is about to end.

Perhaps a case of a 'canary in the coalmine'? Like...what did he know that we don't - yet! ???

Still, very sad for his family for sure.

As for the witness quote bit, "Still nobody approaching the body, very odd..."

Nothing surpsing there. I guess they are still doing a health and safety risk assessment first, vis a vis the high roof, waiting to get it authorised in triplicate........ :o

Another here:

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/william-broeksmit-suicide-ex-deutsche-bank-executive-found-hanging-london-home-1434129

William Broeksmit, a former Deutsche Bank executive found dead at his west London home, is believed to have committed suicide.

Police were called to Broeksmit's home in Evelyn Gardens, SW7. They found a 58-year-old man hanging. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the ambulance service. The Metropolitan Police did not name Broeksmit and were treating the death as non-suspicious.

Deustche told staff in an internal email that Broeksmit had passed away, but gave no further details. He had retired from the bank in February 2013.

He's the right age bracket. Didn't he cut a deal to avoid a lot of punishment though.

Some deal !!!!

On a human level anything like this is tragic, and banker or no banker you wouldn't wish anything like this on anyone or their famillies.

On a higher level there must be a reason for it...some bad news about to come out ?

These people, usually known for their 'selfishness', at least have this tendency to go this way and not jump under trains at just before start of rush hour - and so inflict their misery on millions of others too. So some credit to him. For little it's worth.

Now that other retired chap (above story) obviously much older and with more 'class', and so kept it purely private.

Wouldn't wish that level of despair on anybody, banker or not.

Bit of chat on twitter of a second banker suicide today but not confirmed yet. Seems to come in waves.

http://www.ibtimes.c...-takes-its-toll

"Historically, bankers have been stereotyped as the most likely to commit suicide. This has a lot to do with the famous 1929 stock market crash, which resulted in 1,616 banks failing and more than 20,000 businesses going bankrupt. The number of bankers committing suicide directly after the crash is thought to have been only around 20, with another 100 people connected to the financial industry dying at their own hand within the year."

Something big about to go down....

Thankfully the co-op is now fine, RBS is back in profit, HSBC is not restricting money and the economy is booming.

Something you'll never find any of our lot doing, regardless of what they've been found doing or their failures visited on us like some plague:

:blink:

Matsushita is the first minister to commit suicide since Toshikatsu Matsuoka, the 62-year-old agriculture minister. Matsuoka hung himself in May 2007, shortly before he was scheduled to be questioned in the Diet over allegations of corruption.

"My colleague yelled that he could see that someone had jumped from the top of the building onto a lower roof. His body lay there uncovered for at least two hours,' he said.

'Hundreds were looking out of their windows at him.

'It was bonus week at JP Morgan last week so I hope it wasn't to do with that".

Yeah, because if it was something to do with the bonuses, it would be really sad. Really take the shine off your bonus.

Another 'suicide'. That's three dead within a week. Is something going on?

Third Banker, Former Fed Member, "Found Dead" Inside A Week

However, for the third time in the last week, a senior financial executive has died in what appears to be a suicide. As Bloomberg reports, following the deaths of a JPMorgan senior manager (Tuesday) and a Deutsche Bank executive (Sunday), Russell Investments' Chief Economist (and former Fed economist) Mike Dueker was found dead at the side of a highway in Washington State. Police said the death appeared to be a suicide.

Internal investigations and disbelieving families - hope they get to the bottom of it. Unlikely that we will ever hear though.

"Magee’s parents, Bill and Nell Magee, are not buying the official story according to press reports and are planning to travel from the United States to London to get at the truth. One of their key issues, which should also trouble the police, is how an employee obtains access to the rooftop of one of the mostly highly secure buildings in London"

By jumping onto it from an even higher rooftop? :ph34r:

See that makes sense, providing of course that it is possible. I know nothing about the location. This - just nicked from Zugzwang on the JP Morgan thread is worrying though.

Gabriel Magee, the guy who threw himself off the JP Morgan building last week wasn't actually a trader or a banker but the Lead Architect of JPM's trading system. He'd have to have known the ins and outs of every currency and fixed income trade JPM made in the last ten years, who approved what and when. There's a good chance he had a more complete grasp of JPM's history than anybody bar Jamie Dimon.

Convenient guy to have out the way if the Feds are closing in, wouldn't you say?

FWIW, here's his linkedin profile.
