    [h=1]"Riddles" Surround 36th Dead Banker Of The Year[/h]
    [​IMG]
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 12/07/2014 16:05 -0500


    [​IMG]
    52-year-old Belgian Geert Tack - a private banker for ING who managed portfolios for wealthy individuals - was described as 'impeccable', 'sporty', 'cared-for', and 'successful' and so as Vermist reports, after disappearing a month ago, the appearance of his body off the coast of Ostend is surrpunded by riddles...


    Tack disappeared on November 5th...




    Impeccable. Sporty. Cared for. Successful. Just some qualifications that are attributed to the 52-year-old from the Belgian Geert Tack Haaltert.



    [​IMG]

    Geert Tack worked as a private banker for ING and managed portfolios of wealthy clients. The Belgian had a lot of respect in the financial world and was known as an up and top professional. His sudden disappearance was also smashed like a bomb. "If Tack himself was having trouble he has managed to keep it well hidden", say colleagues.

    Nobody then could have guessed that the man would not return on Wednesday, November 5th to his wife in their villa Vondelen.


    and was found dead this weekend off the coast of Ostend...




    On December 3, the body was found on the coast of Ostend and removed from the water. The prosecutor confirmed today that it is Geert Tack, but it is still awaiting further results of the autopsy for the exact cause of death. The results of toxicological testing are not yet known.




    [​IMG]

    The examiner states that the body showed no outward signs of violence.



    As Vermist comments, he was well-liked and successful but the situation of his disappearance remain odd to say the least...




    What makes the matter is that the extra mysterious circumstances under which he disappeared are rather peculiar. Tack had a few weeks earlier his car drove into each other and if the garage then take away a replacement car. Oddly enough, he made it much later, shortly before he disappeared, use. The car, a Renault Espace, has been found in Knokke, but Tack missing to date each track.

    Also - Why he had in the weeks before the disappearance sometimes so difficult to get to sleep? Why he did that Wednesday morning his laptop and cell phone at home?

    Although a desperate act can not be excluded, there are also people who take into account that the missing part of a preconceived plan. From his position Tack had the opportunity to be there - whether or not forced by third parties - to run off with money from his clients. It is a hypothesis that being seriously investigated by the federal police, but where colleagues want to know anything.

    "Something like that would never do," said one of them certainly. "Geert is a blameless man."

    Man dies after becoming impaled on spikes following 60ft fall from Marylebone penthouse

    [​IMG]

    A man who fell 60ft from the window of a penthouse flat in one of London’s most exclusive squares died after being impaled by metal railings below.

    Neighbours today told of their shock at the “horrifying” death in Montagu Square, Marylebone, at just after 5pm yesterday.

    Firefighters had to cut through the 5ft railings with an angle grinder before the body could be removed.

    The victim, who was in his 50s and is believed to have worked in the City, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

    The £3million split-level flat is next door to a property once owned by Beatles drummer Ringo Starr where John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix all stayed in the 1960s.

    A neighbour, who asked not to be named, said: “It is horrific and very sad. My cleaners were here and saw the man’s body. They were traumatised.

    “It was a very gruesome scene. The body was hanging there for a while.

    “Police covered it with a tent straight away when they arrived but quite a few people must have seen it. I couldn’t look, I was horrified.”

    The man, is understood to have lived in the flat with his girlfriend for the past few months.

    Neighbours said they thought he worked in financial services or banking and was from the UK.

    One neighbour said: “He seemed like a nice enough guy although we never really spoke. I just said hello a few times. The couple hadn’t been here that long.”

    Another neighbour told the Standard: “A friend of mine who saw it was just in shock, the poor man was stuck there for a short time before fireman cut down the fence.”

    The owner of Starr’s old flat, said: “It’s very sad, a young man has fallen from the top floor onto the railings and died.

    “My son lives in our apartment and a neighbour called me. We were worried for a few hours till we spoke to him.”

    Leen Meijaard, director of asset management firm BlackRock, said: “I’m in shock. Nothing usually happens here. It's obviously very expensive around here and most people keep themselves to themselves.“

    Hanne Kristiansen, a physiotherapist, said: “I tried to look out our window, but the police yelled ‘get back inside’. I saw the police using a chainsaw and sparks went everywhere.”

    A police tent being guarded by officers was still at the scene as forensic investigations continued into the early hours this morning.

    A Met spokesman said: "Police were called to Montagu Square, W1 at 17:18hrs on Monday, 8 December to reports of a man having fallen from a fourth floor window. A man, believed aged in his early 50's, was pronounced dead at the scene. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time."

    Body of missing AIG executive found in golf course pond

    Couldn't find the banker death watch thread...

    Apparently, this guy couldn't swim...



    Body of missing AIG executive found in golf course pond
    Published January 18, 2015

    [​IMG]

    A body found floating in a pond on a golf course in California has been identified as the AIG executive who disappeared two weeks ago while attending a work conference in the area.

    The Riverside County Coroner’s Office confirmed that it was the body of Omar Meza on Friday, according to KESQ. The cause of death is under investigation and it is not clear how long Meza was in the pond.

    Meza, 33, was last seen around 11 p.m. local time on Jan. 8 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert after having dinner with co-workers.

    The wife of the AIG Financial Distributors vice president, Diane Meza, said he was dropped off by an Uber driver at the wrong hotel. Surveillance footage on the property shows Omar Meza walking out of the hotel lobby. Authorities later found Omar’s jacket neatly folded on the resort’s golf course over the weekend, along with his wallet.

    Meza’s body was discovered on Thursday afternoon when golfers finishing their round spotted it floating in a pond.

    Authorities scoured the property for days, including looking in ponds with dive teams and search dogs, MyFoxLA reports, and didn’t find anything.

    But the search focused around the area where Meza’s items were found and not the pond where he was located.

    "People have to realize the property is 48 acres big and there are numerous bodies of water on the property," Lt. David Teets, who leads the Sheriff's Media Information Bureau, told KESQ.

    A Facebook page set up by friends and family searching for Meza described him as a “very loved son, husband, brother and friend.”

    Missing Hawke's Bay man's body found in UK

    [​IMG]
    Former Napier man Michael Flanagan has been found dead in The Lake District in England.

    Tributes are flooding in for a Hawke's Bay man who was found dead on a mountain in northern England this week, after he had been missing for four days.

    United Kingdom police yesterday confirmed a body found on Helvellyn, a mountain in the English lake District, was that of 45-year-old Michael Flanagan, originally from Napier.

    Mr Flanagan had told staff at a hotel that he intended to walk up the mountain on January 8. He was not heard from again and a search involving mountain rescue teams and a Royal Navy helicopter was launched.

    Volunteers from the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team discovered Mr Flanagan's body four days later on Monday.

    A spokesman for Cumbria Police said there were no suspicious circumstances and the coroner had been informed.

    Mr Flanagan grew up in Napier, where he attended Napier Boys' High School.

    He lived in London with his wife and young son and worked as the head of foreign exchange institutional sales for National Australia Bank.

    He had also worked for HSBC and the Royal Bank of Scotland.

    His friend Tony Brown, a financial trader based in Singapore, said he was "shocked" to receive a phone call saying Mr Flanagan had been found dead.

    "He was such a jovial, jolly, happy chappy. He was always there for a laugh, always up for a beer, and he had a truly wicked sense of humour. He just fit in with anybody."

    Napier Boys' High School archivist and historian Phillip Rankin said Mr Flanagan was a prefect of the school in 1986. He was also leader of the brass band, in which he played the cornet alongside EIT's newly-appointed deputy chief executive Mark Oldershaw.

    Mr Oldershaw and Mr Flanagan bonded over music, winning a national duet championship during their school days.

    Mr Flanagan would later be best man at his wedding.

    He described Mr Flanagan's death as "a truly tragic accident".

    "Undoubtedly it's come as a shock to everyone. It's all a bit surreal."

    Although he had lived in London for about 10 years, Mr Flanagan remained proud of his Hawke's Bay and Napier roots.

    "He was full of life. He always gave things a go and certainly lived life to the max."

    Re: Body of missing AIG executive found in golf course pond

    Has anyone graphed dead bankers from say 2000? I just wondered if the rate of dead bankers was constant and we just never noticed or there has been a substantial uptick in the last few years.

    You make a VERY good point. Such information would be interesting to compile.

    I am under the impression, the rate of incident, has increased. However, that is only because of the reports in the last two years.

    I wonder if the AIG Executive got into the golf course for free?

    Where I live, the local bank pays the membership fee to the Country Club, for employees of the bank. Its part of the fringe benefit package. Get a job at the bank and get a free Country Club membership.

    [h=1]"Cheerful" Dutch Financier Becomes 4th ABN Amro Banker Suicide[/h]

    [​IMG]
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 01/24/2015 21:15 -0500




    Following the deaths of 36 bankers last year, 2015 has got off to an inauspicious start with the reported suicide of Chris Van Eeghen - the 4th ABN Amro banker suicide in the last few years. As Quotenet reports, the death of Van Eghen - the head of ABN's corporate finance and capital markets -"startled" friends and colleagues as the 42-year-old "had a great reputation" at work, came from an "illustrious family," and enjoyed national fame briefly as the boyfriend of a famous actress/model. As one colleague noted, "he was always cheerful, good mood, and apparently he had everything your heart desired. He never sat in the pit, never was down, so I was extremely surprised. I can not understand."



    As Niburu details, friends and colleagues were startled by the news that Chris van Eeghen had committed suicide.


    He worked in Amsterdam for ABN / AMRO in the position of "head of syndicate and corporate finance markets."


    [​IMG]

    Again, there is again a familiar pattern, namely that there is no indication that Van Eeghen had plans to take his life.

    Ostensibly a successful banker, coming from what was described as an illustrious family. Chris was also a familiar sight in Amsterdam's nightlife scene and enjoyed national fame as possible new boyfriend of Tatjana Simic (a famous Croatian-Dutch model, singer, actress).

    "I have never expected. It was an incredibly nice cute guy, "said a neighbor from Amsterdam. In banking circles he had a good reputation.

    Most believe that the suicide is not related to his work at the bank, but a former colleague had noticed that on his Facebook recently changed its job title to "former."

    Suicide is today's method de jour, but in 1929... it's reported they 'jumped', but I'm thinking 'pushed' or 'assisted' might be the proper designation...?

    39th banker dead in 13 months, third this year

    January 27, 2015 9:49 pm EST

    THE CONSPIRACY KEEPS GOING AFTER ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
    By Shepard Ambellas

    OVERVEEN, Netherlands (INTELLIHUB) — ABN Amro banker Chris Van Eeghen allegedly committed suicide in is home Monday, marking the fourth Amro banker to die in 4-years, and the 39th banker to die in the last 13 months, in an unusual string of deaths.

    [​IMG]

    Neighbors and colleagues of Van Eeghen describe him as an extremely nice guy, pointing out how they were shocked by his death.

    Van Eeghen previously attended the University of Buckingham, studied law and was also a football player.

    He was considered a professional banker with a good reputation.

    Although some can’t beleive Van Eeghen committed suicide, it’s worthy to point out that his Facebook page was recently changed to read “former” head of syndicate, ABN Amro Corporate Finance & Capital Markets, as reported by Quote 500.

    Van Eeghen’s girlfriend wrote in an email, “We were like boys in dealings among themselves, talking about women, the world. That was perhaps also the friendship I had with him, my courage and freedom versus his humor. To accept his death I assume that Chris wanted freedom, this was the way to take his freedom. He was always thinking of others. He kept neatly in earthly life. I hope that he illuminates felt at the time that he actually chose death.”

    Van Eeghen had a son from a prior relationship, but lived alone, according to reports.

    In 2014 Jan-Peter Schmittman and in 2009 Fentener Vlissingen scion Huibert Boumeester both also committed suicide, both were ABN Amro employees.

    A JPMorgan associate and his wife were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide inside their New Jersey home

    Published: February 8, 2015

    A JPMorgan Chase associate and his wife were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in Closter, New Jersey on Friday evening.

    According to the Bergen County prosecutor John Molinelli, Michael Tabacchi, 27, allegedly killed his wife, Iran Pars Tabacchi, 41, who also went by "Denise."

    "Autopsy on Closter couple shows wife died from strangulation and single stab wound to chest. Husband died from self inflicted stab chest," Molinelli Tweeted.

    The Bergen County Record reports that Michael Tabacchi's father discovered the bodies when he came to the house after receiving a text message from his son. (It's unclear what the text said.)

    The couple were pronounced dead at Englewood Hospital.

    The couple's 15-month old baby was found unharmed inside the home at 595 High Street. According to Molinelli's Twitter account, the baby "is fine."

    The baby is in the care of the paternal grandparents, according to The Bergen County Record.

    Tabacchi worked for JPMorgan Chase's global custody business, some social media pages tied to him show. Denise worked as an administrative assistant at Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital, according to her Facebook page.

    Re: Banker Death Watch.....

    Things seem to have slowed down. Did they get everyone they needed to get? If it was "natural" in terms of real suicides, you would expect the numbers to be spread out and even over a long time period. Not to be clumped into a very high rate and then drop off to almost zero. Strange that banker deaths seem to be over.

    Amtrak crash victim Abid Gilani was returning from funeral
    DOYLE MURPHY
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    A Wells Fargo executive, traveling after a family funeral, was one of atleast seven people killed on Tuesday in a deadly Amtrak crash, a relative and the company confirmed.

    Abid Gilani, a 55-year-old senior vice president, was a passenger on the Northeast Regional Train 188 when it veered off the track in Philadelphia.

    Gilani and his mother from Toronto had attended funeral services for his uncle in Virginia, and he had to return to New York City for work, a cousin told the Daily News.

    The married father of two had recently relocated with his family to Walnut Creek, Calif. from Maryland while his kids went to college on the West Coast. The dedicated dad and executive had to commute across the country each week to work in Manhattan and returned home each weekend to California to be with his wife.

    His worried spouse rushed to Philadelphia on Wednesday morning when she didn't hear from him. The family is struggling with the grim news of his death.

    "His mother was in town from Toronto for the funeral of her brother and now has to bury her son," the cousin said.

    Gilani had worked for Wells Fargo for about a year after nearly eight years with hotel giant Marriott International.

    He was "a valued member of our Commercial Real Estate division," a spokeswoman told the Daily News. "Our hearts go out to all those impacted by this tragedy."

    Murray Abbott, Missing Morgan Stanley Trader, Dies at 36

    Murray Abbott, an institutional sales trader at Morgan Stanley in Toronto who had been missing since April 25, was found Monday by the shore of Lake Ontario near the city’s Beaches neighborhood where he lived. He was 36.

    His death wasn’t suspicious (yah right), Mark Pugash, a Toronto Police Service spokesman, said Tuesday in a telephone interview. “It was obviously a very tragic missing person’s case.”

    Abbott was a vice president and one of 16 people on the institutional equities desk at Morgan Stanley’s Canadian wealth-management division. He joined the New York-based bank in 2010, following jobs at Toronto-based brokerage Blackmont Capital Inc. and Research Capital Corp.

    Re: Banker Death Watch.....

    String of Wall Street deaths appears to rise above level of coincidence...

    Earlier this year, a 22-year-old first-year analyst at the Goldman Sachs office in San Francisco was feeling overwhelmed by the all-nighters and 100-hour workweeks.

    The analyst, Sarvshreshth Gupta, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania who was born in New Delhi, told his father, Sunil, “This job is not for me. Too much work and too little time.”

    In March, against his father’s wishes, Mr. Gupta quit. However, a week later, “By a quirk of fate, he was asked by his company to reconsider his resignation and under pressure from me, he rejoined,” his father wrote in an essay. Others at Goldman said he asked for his job back.

    When Mr. Gupta returned, he was originally put on a reduced schedule, and the firm had him meet with its employee assistance counselors about dealing with work-life balance issues and the stress of the job.

    Soon, however, Mr. Gupta, who worked in Goldman’s telecommunications, media and technology group, was working flat-out again as the firm’s deal business became busier and busier.

    About 2:40 a.m. on April 16, Mr. Gupta called his father in India.

    “He calls us and says, ‘It is too much. I have not slept for two days, have a client meeting tomorrow morning, have to complete a presentation, my V.P. is annoyed and I am working alone in my office,’ ” his father wrote. “I got furious. ‘Take 15 days leave and come home,’ I said. He quipped, ‘They will not allow.’ I said, ‘Tell them to consider this as your resignation letter.’ ”

    Mr. Gupta told his father that he would work for another hour, then head to his home a half-mile from the office, and return in the morning.

    Later that morning, at 6:40, Mr. Gupta was found in the parking lot next to his apartment building on the corner of Sacramento Street and Brooklyn Place and was declared dead, according to police officials. He apparently fell from the building. The San Francisco medical examiner’s office is conducting an investigation and has yet to officially declare a cause of death.

    Mr. Gupta’s death, one of numerous unexpected deaths or suicides of young bankers over the last year, has caused a new round of reflection and re-evaluation by Goldman and other Wall Street firms about their work policies just two weeks before a new class of college interns descend on the industry for the summer.

    Just last week, Thomas J. Hughes, a 29-year-old banker at Moelis & Company, was found dead with drugs in his system after falling from a building in Manhattan.

    “The only explanation is that I know he’s been working very hard and has been under a lot of pressure,” Mr. Hughes’s father told The Daily Mail. “His work did not leave much time for enjoyment, but that’s the nature of the assignment that he chose.” An investigation is pending to determine the official cause of death.

    For more than a month, Mr. Gupta’s death has largely remained held in confidence among a small group of his colleagues and family. After Mr. Gupta’s death, David Solomon, Goldman’s co-head of investment banking, and John S. Weinberg, a vice chairman, flew to San Francisco to speak with a small group of the bank’s employees and discuss the firm’s approach to work-life balance. The firm held a small memorial service for Mr. Gupta, who was universally liked by his colleagues and whom several said was so good at his job that he had become one of the “go-to” analysts. Indeed, his proficiency and work ethic appear to have led to him to take on a large workload.

    “We are saddened by Sav’s death and feel deeply for his family,” Goldman said in a statement. “We hope that people will respect the family’s expressed desire for privacy during this difficult time.” Mr. Gupta’s father wrote an essay about his son’s death, which he posted on Medium and later removed. In an email, Mr. Gupta’s father said, “At this time, the grieving family does not wish to speak to the press.” He said his essay about his son was intended for “the grieving family and a means of dealing with my deep anguish and catharsis.”

    Of course, it is always difficult to directly link a death or possible suicide to work conditions. Other factors can be in play, like family problems, medical issues or a history of depression. And in Mr. Gupta’s case, the cause of his death remains undetermined.

    Still, the string of deaths on Wall Street appears to rise above the level of simple coincidence. Last February, Fortune ran an article titled: “Is there a suicide contagion on Wall Street?”

    Studies have suggested that financial service employees are at higher risk than those in many other industries. According to the National Occupational Mortality Surveillance, individuals who work in financial services are 1.5 times more likely to commit suicide than the national average. The highest suicide rates in the United States are among doctors, dentists and veterinarians.

    It is possible that the finance industry attracts more people with depression, just as it is possible that the pressure-cooker work environment overwhelms some people who have been high achievers their entire lives. It could be a tragic combination of multiple factors. Wall Street has always thrived, in part, on its eat-or-be-eaten culture. Would curbing its competitive nature cut into its success?

    Most top Wall Street firms have sought to change their work policies for young investment bankers in recent years, in part to combat some of the problems and because they are increasingly in heated competition with Silicon Valley for top talent and are seeking to make themselves more attractive.

    Goldman, for example, has required that analysts take Saturdays off. Credit Suisse, too, has made employees take Saturdays off, with employees instructed to avoid even email. Bank of America has instituted a policy that requires analysts to “take four days off a month” on the weekends. And JPMorgan Chase has said that one weekend a month should be protected.

    Many of those steps were taken after a 21-year-old intern died at Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s London office in summer 2013 after reports indicated he had pulled three consecutive all-nighters. The official cause of death was epilepsy.

    As the economy has heated up and the deal-making market has improved, however, young bankers are once again working long hours. Perversely, young analysts now say that having Saturdays off has often added to their stress because late nights on Sundays have become the norm.

    Some banks, like Goldman, are also taking new steps, like introducing more efficient software and technology to help young analysts do their work more quickly. And investment banks say they are hiring more analysts to help balance the workload.

    That may help. But as long as young analysts are expected to work 80 to 100 hours a week, invariably some run the risk of finding themselves in a situation they cannot handle. With new classes of such analysts arriving each year, it is incumbent on the industry to make sure it is doing everything possible to make sure that no one is too overwhelmed.

    Correction: June 1, 2015
    An earlier version of this column misstated the age of Sarvshreshth Gupta, the Goldman Sachs analyst who was found dead in San Francisco. He was 22, not 24. In addition, it misstated the time of a call he made to his father on April 16. It was about 2:40 a.m., not just after midnight. Also, it misstated the name of the company where Thomas J. Hughes worked. It is Moelis, not Moeis.

    JPMorgan Vice Chairman Jimmy Lee Dies Unexpectedly at Age 62
    by Hugh SonMax Abelson

    James B. “Jimmy” Lee, the colorful JPMorgan Chase & Co. rainmaker whose pioneering work in the loan market helped propel an era of Wall Street deals, died Wednesday morning. He was 62.

    Lee felt shortness of breath while on a treadmill at his home in Darien, Connecticut, and was taken to a hospital, where he died, according to a person briefed on the matter.

    “Jimmy was a great friend, leader and mentor to me and so many others,” JPMorgan Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said in a statement. “Jimmy was a master of his craft, but he was so much more -- he was an incomparable force of nature.”

    At an investment bank that often emphasized its team and resources over individual stars, Lee was the exception, with a charismatic personality and Rolodex known throughout Wall Street. He worked for JPMorgan and its predecessors since the mid-1970s, eventually running its investment bank before becoming a company vice chairman and continuing to garner some of its biggest deals. A rival banker once quipped that one of Dimon’s most important tasks every year was to make sure Lee stayed happy.

    Lee is survived by his wife Beth and three children, Lexi, Jamie and Izzy, according to Dimon’s statement.

    “It’s a sad day for Wall Street,” said Raymond McGuire, global head of corporate and investment banking at Citigroup Inc. “Jimmy Lee was a formidable competitor who commanded respect.”

    ‘Very Decent’

    Lee counseled on some of the biggest deals in corporate America, helping negotiate Comcast Corp.’s acquisition of NBC from General Electric Co. in 2009, the United-Continental airline merger in 2010 and General Motors Co.’s $18 billion initial public offering later that year. He also was an adviser to Dell Inc. on its $24.4 billion buyout by its founder Michael Dell.

    Lee was the wallet for many of Wall Street’s biggest dealmakers. He pioneered the use of leveraged loans to fund takeovers more than two decades ago and helped build the modern private-equity industry. Among his most frequent collaborators was Blackstone Group co-founder and CEO Stephen Schwarzman. The two men developed a close friendship.

    “If you called up central casting and said, ‘Send me a banker,’ they’d send somebody who’s like Jimmy Lee,” said Bill Daley, who was chairman of JPMorgan’s Midwest region before becoming President Barack Obama’s chief of staff. “The hair back, and the two-tone shirt, and the expensive suits, and dined at all the best places. But along with that came a guy who was very decent.”

    ‘Warrior Today’

    And spontaneous. Lee was known to jump onto stage with a guitar during performances of JPMorgan employee band the Bank Notes.

    “His e-mails to me had a big theme: You had to be a warrior,” said Tim Main, senior managing director at Evercore Partners Inc. who spent 23 years at JPMorgan. “I must have gotten 50 e-mails just saying the word, ‘Warrior.’ And another 50 saying, ‘Warrior today.’ Sometimes all caps. Sometimes while I was presenting in a meeting.”

    Dan Loeb, founder and CEO of Third Point LLC, recalled how Lee helped him learn how to do business in Japan.

    “I repaid him by making him a T-shirt that said, ‘I advised Dan Loeb on his investment in Sony, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt,’’ Loeb said in an e-mail. Later, after Third Point won a rare meeting with robot-maker Fanuc Corp., ‘‘Jimmy purchased a linen jacket in the company’s distinctive corporate color -– bright yellow -– for me,’’ he said.

    Father’s Death

    James Bainbridge Lee Jr. was born in October 1952. His father was a hatmaker who ran Frank H. Lee Hat Co. in Danbury, Connecticut. He died of a heart attack at 47 after the company fell on hard times. Lee, who was 11 at the time, was sent to boarding school.

    ‘‘I had trouble trusting other people, because I was afraid I’d get involved in a close relationship and it would get taken away from me,” he said in a video when he won the 2004 Horatio Alger Award.

    He attended the Canterbury School and graduated from Williams College, where he received a bachelor’s degree in economics and art history in 1975. After graduating, he got a job as a management trainee at Chemical Bank in New York.

    Lee’s career started as a fluke: His girlfriend, who later became his wife, had applied for and received numerous job interviews, but couldn’t make it to one.

    Chance Interview

    “She said, ‘I’m not going to marry a bum, I want you to take this interview.’ I took the interview,” Lee recalled in the video. “They said, ‘Do you want to work here?’ I said, ‘No.’ ‘Do you want to come to New York?’ I said, ‘No.’ So they said, ‘Well, what’s on your mind, we got an hour to kill here.’ We ended up talking about sports and leadership and hard work. So they invited me back for another interview, and I no longer had a future as a bum.”

    Lee soon worked for the bank in Australia. In 1982, he founded the bank’s loan-syndications unit in New York, the start of Chemical Bank’s investment-banking business, according to a biography provided by JPMorgan.

    “I had just finished a study of how Chemical Bank might get into the syndicated-loan business,” William Harrison, a Chemical Bank executive who would go on to run JPMorgan, said in an interview. He enlisted Lee for the project. “Jimmy took basically nothing and began to build a very powerful business.”

    Counseling Titans

    Syndicating loans for corporate mergers and takeovers let companies pursue ever-bigger deals, tapping into a broader market for the debt rather than just the balance sheets of banks handling the transactions. By 1994, he had organized coverage of private-equity firms as a stand-alone industry group and started the bank’s first M&A practice.

    In 1996, Chemical merged with Chase Manhattan Corp. The combined company promoted Lee to vice chairman the following year with responsibility for global investment banking. When the firm bought mergers adviser Beacon Group in 2000, Lee relinquished the post to Beacon’s Geoffrey Boisi, but continued to focus on client relationships and major transactions. Later that year, the bank joined with J.P. Morgan & Co.

    Lee was an adviser to Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. on its IPO last year -- a $25 billion deal that was the largest ever -- after building a relationship with co-founders Jack Ma and Joe Tsai. At a party in New York the day the shares began trading, Lee introduced Ma to a crowd of hundreds.

    ‘Tireless Mentor’

    Recently, Lee had been advising GE on the sale of its financial arm, part of the transformation of the company by CEO Jeff Immelt.

    “Jimmy was a great banker, a tireless mentor and not the least, everyone’s favorite golfing partner,” said Michael Bloomberg, founder, CEO and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, parent of Bloomberg News. “Most importantly, he was a true friend to so many of us throughout his career. He will be sorely missed.”

    Lee spoke about work, dreams and love when he won the Horatio Alger prize.

    “I do really feel like the luckiest man on the face of the earth,” he said.

    Re: Banker suicides self

    Some bankers must be getting out of line and are being dealt with.
