Another "Successful Banker" Found Dead
zero hedge ^ | 2/24/14 | tyler durden

Posted on 02/24/2014 6:17:24 PM PST by Nachum

 

The dismal trail of dead bankers continues. As The Journal Star reports, a successful Lincoln businessman and member of a prominent local family died last week. Former National Bank of Commerce CEO James Stuart Jr. was found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death. This brings the total of banker deaths in recent weeks to 9 as Stuart is sadly survived by three sons and four daughters.

 

 

Mr Stuart's background (via The Journal Star),

Stuart was a native of Lincoln and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Business Administration.

 

In 1969, Stuart joined Citibank in New York City and served as a loan officer until 1973, when he joined First Commerce Bancshares (then NBC Co.) as executive vice president. He was named president in 1976, chairman and CEO in 1978, and also became chairman and CEO of National Bank of Commerce in 1985. Stuart spent his life building the organization into an important business voice in Lincoln, friend and colleague Brad Korell said.

 

“He was a very successful banker,” said Korell, who worked with Stuart for more than 30 years. “I always felt that he was a visionary. He really did build one of the most successful and admired banking organizations in the Midwest.”

 

Stuart spent much of his career with First Commerce Bancsha

How did he die?

Did he keep falling down his one flight of stairs?

Well, it's sad, it's frightening. I'm sorry for his death, but is it related to banking? The other thing is...he looks an awful lot like the Isuzu man.

One article said a lot of them were involved in foreign exchange. I wonder if Soros or someone else made some bad bets on foreign exchange and are taking it out on these bankers.

Just saw the Dead Bankers at Klub Kaos the other night.

Sadly, their show was sub-prime.

this meme has jumped the shark. Is Zero Hedge just going to go through the obituaries and find anyone who ever worked at a bank, imply it’s all connected and never be responsible for citing even the slightest connection?

BOMBSHELL: Dead JPM bankers “Knew each other and had uncovered something”

Wednesday we reported that another JP Morgan banker has been found dead, as the latest banker to meet a sudden and untimely demise is Ryan Henry Crane, the Executive Director in JPMorgan’s Global Equities Group.

Today, Steve Quayle’s banker source “V”, who predicted that a wave of banker hits was imminent when the very first bankers began dropping last week, has dropped a bombshell regarding the death of Ryan Henry Crane.

V states that Crane oversaw all of the trade platforms and worked closely with Gabriel Magee of JPM’s London desk (who fell 32 stories off the JPM London roof moments after texting his g/f he would be home shortly), and that the pair had access to the exact same info.

V concludes Crane & Magee: “Knew each other and had uncovered something“.

V’s update on the latest JPMorgan banker to turn up dead is below:

From Steve Quayle’s banker source “V”

One other thing he was the head at the program trading desk. Meaning he over saw all of the trades and was familiar with all of the software (trade platforms) that these trades were done in. This job works closely with guess what? That’s right the London desk and who died last week in London? That’s right Gabriel Magee the one who jumped off the 33rd floor. What was his post? Head of IT and trade platforms meaning he had access to info that Ryan Henry Crane would have.

They knew each other and uncovered something they were about the same age and these hits happen when two big announcements by JPM.
1. They are out of commodities, and
2. The wholesale selling of their HQ downtown to the Chinese.

http://osnetdaily.com/2014/02/bombshell-dead-jpm-bankers-knew-each-other-and-had-uncovered-something/

If we had real investigative reporters, we might have some answers. Of course, the reporters might end up dead, too, or at least audited by the IRS.

The latest figure I can find is 11.3 per 100,000 population.

How many bank executives?

I don’t know, but there has to be way over 100,000 if you are going to count every bank in every town in the USA.

All of which have multiple bank officers.

That said, I am convinced that there is going to be a seismic collapse in the banking industry and not too far in the future.

Of course you can find a connection between bankers and bankers' scandals. Doesn't mean it's causative.

I think the number of bankers at these guys level is closer to 10,000 than 100,000.
I wasn’t looking at seismic collapse in the banking industry, so much as total collapse of the US dollar.
Total collapse of the USD.

If your guess is correct, then the number of recent suicides is of concern because it is already approaching 10 times the statistical norm.

As for what will collapse, I would think that either would bring on the other.

They need to learn how to survive, i.e., trust no one.

This may seem white collar to banker, but they don’t know what they’re dealing with.

New world order plays for keeps; they are dead serious (obviously).

Banking is a very hazardous profession these days! I am glad I chose being an engineer working with energetic materials (explosives) instead.

Only 9? No big deal, write another report when 200 have offed themselves that will be interesting. Honestly what do bankers do? They count money, what happens when they get to the vault and there's nothing to count.

Ah, might as well... Jump!

This one is tougher to include in the suicide rash. The guy didn’t wake up. He was 70 years old. I am not willing to include this on the list until further information comes out

IDK. If he was in New York or London or Hong Kong, I’d believe he was #9. But Lincoln Nebraska isn’t exactly the center of the financial world. Sometimes middle-aged guys do get heart attacks and strokes.

JPMorgan To Fire Thousands
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-24/jpmorgan-fire-thousands

It turns out that they didn’t fire enough and/or that the housing market contraction was far worse than even the banks, in their most, pessimistic forecasts, had expected. Case in point: JPMorgan, which after firing 15,000 in its mortgage business, has just revealed it will fire thousands more.

I read that Adam’s dad was set to testify before congress about the Libor Scandal. And then well....everyone got distracted. Plus, I heard one time (but cannot even cite the source, may not be anything) - that the Sandy Hook shooter’s dad was also connected to the Libor Scandal.
