A 33-year-old man jumped to his death from the skyscraper roof of U.S. investment bank JPMorgan Chase & Cos Asia headquarters on Tuesday, police said.
JP Morgan has confirmed that the man who jumped was an employee at the firm with the last name Li. He was a junior investment banker.

Really? Not to seem TOO cynical, but 'another one' out of how many thousands and thousands and thousands of bankers around the world?
The Clinton’s must be back in town......
Really? Not to seem TOO cynical, but ‘another one’ out of how many thousands and thousands and thousands of bankers around the world?
1. They are all JP Morgan.
2. The number that jumped in the last month or two is as many that jump in a 10 or 20 year period (or longer).
If this is just normal events suddenly being reported, we are being set up. If it is as much as a unique statistic as it appears, I’d highly recommend buying lots of dried beans and rice.
Nothing to see here, move along
10? 100? 1,000? 1,000,000?
Will your threshold rise over time?
In the end will you be saying "Ve had no idea vat vas happenink!"?
Or will you be quoting Anna Von Hagen?
Anna Von Hagen: We put them in cattle cars and shipped them east. Always east.
Charlie Maguire: To the Ukraine, you mean? To the resettlement camps?
Anna Von Hagen: Ja, to resettle them. In the air.
She twirls her finger upward, ...as smoke!
You are a bad man.
“Really? Not to seem TOO cynical, but another one out of how many thousands and thousands and thousands of bankers around the world?”
I don’t know a lot of guys my age who pull chocks early. Couple that with the fact we’re not hearing about mechanics or tailor’s committing suicide, but bankers as of late is giving me the creeps. Something’s brewing, and its not my coffee.
I’d recommend staying across the street from JP Morgan buildings. It seems employees are under a lot of pressure. They are being fined at lot for criminal behavior.
Did the PRC lend a helping hand?
My local high school saw three suicides in two years, after none for decades. Should I be concerned?
It is hard to visualize what the stress level is right now in the private sector.
I know a manager at Intel who did all his yearly reviews, signed off the paperwork then killed himself.
Don’t fall into the trap that this is a good thing.
It is a sign of the times and it could get much much worse.
Why would you care?
I was just wondering if you found them to be “suspicious.”
Are these fellows killing themselves because they are losing everything or have they become inconvenient to others?
"If you can do simple math, you're a Nazi."
Putting your inane non-argument aside:
The suicide rate in London is 9 per 100,000.
London has a population of 8.3mm.
About 8% of Londoners work in financial services.
Therefore someone who knew math would expect about 60 suicides in the London financial sector every year, perhaps more given how stressful the sector can be.
The rocks might melt, the sea may boil. I do not know. May the truth not hit us like an oncoming freight train, Lord. May You, Lord, restore us ... Amen ...
Finance workers are 1.51 times more likely to commit suicide than average. Slightly ahead of chiropractors, but behind veternarians, doctors and dentists.
I remember the “summer of shark attacks” a few years ago, when the number of shark attacks was exactly in line with the annual average, but it was still “the summer of shark attacks!! What’s going on?!!?”
Suicides like this get more publicity due being “spectacular”———
“Hey, it’s raining bankers!”
What would be more informative is if there is an upward rise in total compared to historical average.
Of course, there is the possibility a voyager like Li may have had some assistance on his final flight.
Maybe they each know something about Barry’s personal (secret) billion dollar cut of the stimulus money?
Ever notice how shark attacks decrease in frequency during the winter? It’s as if they all receive orders, or something.
Didn’t Soros just buy a big stake in JP Morgan.......
In breaking news, Channel 29 News has been told exclusively that there are no new developments in the case. Stay tuned to Channel 29 News for the latest breaking developments in this important case.

"With God as my witness, I thought bankers could fly."
What is there to see here?
Want to know how to know this means something? Just count how many posters are saying it doesn’t mean anything. Do they do that for every suicide demographic? Nope. Only bankers. All of a sudden it’s really important that you know this means nothing at all.
Remember the other day, the guy who shot himself 8 times with a nail gun?
Statistically insignificant. Out of the billions of people on this earth someone was bound to do that eventually. Even in the same week all the other guys were jumping off tall buildings.
Hmm . . . I wonder if that has something to do with the number of posters saying that this means something, as opposed to other suicides, and other suicide demographics?
NO job is worth killing one’s self over. You lose it all? Just start over. Or go Grizzly Adams.
What is there to see here?
God, a Life, Love with a sword when necessary. Thanks be to God ... Amen ...
According to the official filing, Soros now owns 0.08% of JPM.
Soros is the 151st largest holder of JPM.
Not a very big stake.
P.S. Bankers don’t throw themselves out of windows. They take pills and die underneath hookers in Aruba. Diving out of windows is so 1920s - not to mention bad for business. But it’s great for impressing other bankers.
Know what I mean?
I don’t remember that the other day. He killed himself with a NAIL GUN?
I assure you that if you were thinking of taking ‘the coward’s way out’, you could find a less painful way to go than shooting yourself 8 times with a nail gun.
I will have to duckduckgo that. (try duckduckgo.com - I don’t work for them. They don’t track usage, like Bing and Google).
Yes, I question the significance of these suicides because I am secretly employed by both the Illuminati and the Masons, though I can't let either know of my relationship with the other, lest Queen Elizabeth conspire with David Rockefeller to off me, unceremoniously.
Conspiracy theories aside, can you tell me how the rate of banker suicides for the past year corresponds with the rate of banker suicides for previous years?
I think that would be a relevant statistic to help gage whether this is actually a significant trend or an internet/media inspired brouhaha.
All of a sudden its really important that you know this means nothing at all.
Nothing could mean less to me. I gave up trying to talk down internet conspiracy nuts back in the year 2000, when martial law was declared and society completely broke down and we returned to an pre-industrial agrarian society due to systemic computer deficiencies.
Your response is incoherent.
"It's a big conspiracy. And if you say it isn't, you're in on the conspiracy."
I think you're actually not joking.
I would love to read an explanation of what you were trying to convey.
Nothing, if one has eyes to see but does not see...
