It’s not a coincidence…

On 26 July 2011, along with its second quarter earnings report, Deutsche Bank reported that Anshu Jain, head of investment banking and Juergen Fitschen, head of the German business, will replace Josef Ackermann as co-CEOs starting in 2012. Fears that Deutsche Bank could neglect its German roots and expand risk-taking activities prompted key members of the supervisory board to opt for the dual CEO model. Deutsche Bank is listed on both the Frankfurt (FWB) and New York stock exchanges (NYSE).

A third banker has committed suicide within the space of a week, once again prompting speculation that some kind of financial collapse could be just around the corner…..


And again from above:

The JSE-listed group also stressed that the infringement of antitrust laws commenced in 1992 or even earlier, while Sasol only became a co-shareholder in an existing wax business, located in Hamburg and owned by the Schumann Group, in 1995. In July 2002, Sasol acquired the remaining shares in the joint venture.

It stressed in its statement that it had been unaware of any competition law infringements until EC commenced its probe in April 2005.

The companies which were found to have participated in the illegal cartel included Sasol Wax, ExxonMobil, ENI, Hansen & Rosenthal, Tudapetrol, MOL, Repsol, RWE and Total. Oil giant Shell was also part of the cartel, which operated from 1992 to 2005, but applied for immunity under Europe‘s 2002 Leniency Notice in 2005, which prompted the investigation.

Sasol was, however, found to be the leader of the cartel and had thus been fined €318-million or about R3,7-billion.

More on Tata here:


Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata (Gujarati: જમ્શેત્જી નુંસ્સેર્વાનજી ટાટા; 3 March 1839 – 19 May 1904) was an Indian pioneer industrialist, who founded the Tata Group, India’s biggest conglomerate company. He was born to a Parsi Zoroastrian family in Navsari then part of the princely state of Baroda.

Zoroastrianism /ˌzɒrˈæstriənɪzəm/, also called ZarathustraismMazdaism and Magianism, is an ancient Iranian religion and a religious philosophy. It was once the state religion of the Achaemenid,Parthian, and Sasanian empires. Estimates of the current number of Zoroastrians worldwide vary between 145,000 and 2.6 million.

Zoroastrianism arose in the eastern region of the ancient Persian Empire, when the religious philosopherZoroaster simplified the pantheon of early Iranian gods into two opposing forcesAhura Mazda(Illuminating Wisdom) and Angra Mainyu (Destructive Spirit) in the 7th century BCE.

Zoroaster’s ideas led to a formal religion bearing his name by about the 6th century BCE and have influenced other later religions including JudaismGnosticismChristianity and Islam.

  • Autumn Radtke, 28, was discovered on February 28
  • Previously worked for Apple in Silicon Valley before joining the burgeoning digital currency startup First Meta

Update* 4/9/2014

Over the weekend the world was gripped by the drama surrounding themysterious murder-homicideof the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro and members of his family, and whether there is more foul play than meets the eye. However, that is nothing compared to what just happened in the tiny, and all too quiet Principality of Lichtenstein,where moments ago the CEO of local financial institution Bank Frick & Co. AG, Juergen Frick, was shot dead in the underground garage of the bank located in the city of Balzers.

Amere two weeks sinceformer JPMorgan banker, Kenneth Bellando jumped to his death, Bloomberg reports thatthe former CEO of Dutch Bank ABN Amro (and his wife and daughter) were found dead at their home after a possible “family tragedy.”This expands the dismal list of senior financial services executive deaths to 12 in the last few months. The 57-year-old Jan Peter Schmittmann, was reportedly discovered by his other daughter when she arrived home that morning.Police declined to comment on the cirumstances of his (and his wife and daughter’s) death.This is not the first C-level ABN Amro banker to be found dead. In 2009, former CFO Huibert Boumeester was discovered with (assumed self-inflicted) shotgun wounds.

    Number 4: CEO of American Title Found Dead With Self Inflicted Nail Gun Wounds

    In response to Three Prominent Bankers Found Dead From Apparent Suicides Inside A Week:

    On Monday I reported on the odd rash of suicides by financial execs in just the span of a week. There’s one more rather grisly death to add to the growing list. Following the apparent suicides of 2 London bankers and a former Fed economist in the US, the Denver Post is reporting that Richard Talley, founder and CEO of American Title, was found dead in his home from self-inflicted nail-gun wounds.

    The Denver Post reported:

    Richard Talley, 57, and the company he founded in 2001 were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death late Tuesday, an agency spokesman confirmed Thursday.

    It was unclear how long the investigation had been ongoing or its primary focus.

    A coroner’s spokeswoman Thursday said Talley was found in his garage by a family member who called authorities. They said Talley died from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.

    Also unclear is whether Talley’s suicide was related to the investigation by the Colorado Division of Insurance, which regulates title companies.

    I guess there have been 5 not 4.

    Dueker’s apparent suicide was the fourth among financial experts in a week.

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

    The next day, January 27, Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, 51, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok. Police said he could have committed suicide. Mr. Slym was staying on the 22nd floor with his wife, and was attending a board meeting in the Thai capital.

    Another tragic incident occurred on January 28, when a 39-year-old Gabriel Magee, a JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of its European headquarters in London.
