Anonymous posted an astonishing list of dead bankers

1Beware bankers-what-nowBelow, I re-blogged the list of sudden death financial executives from
Then I read the source to verify:
Ok, Kerry Cassidy I want to discover if any pranks were inserted into the dead bankers’ list (and related family of the bankers).
For several years I have followed this trend of Banking Criminality.
What was first reported in the aware and social media years ago of monetary system fraud, then bankers leaving in huge numbers, and now it is a fatal exodus as they are suddenly and unexpectedly dying.
I was very suspicious because of the sheer numbers, as a hand-full could be plausible, but these numbers are too staggering and needs a well funded investigation with the ability to retrieve documents and affidavits from executives, government officials, and wherever the money trail and other evidence leads.
However after making the time to lookup the individual reports over many regions on Earth I do think several are within the “average” sudden death expectation of contemporary life expectancy.
Perhaps some could “possibly” be the result of a “white Hat” organization, or perhaps some are part of the criminality within the international banking cartel to insure the “dead tell no tales” and to silence those willing to tell the truth.
Obviously the financial sector is a seedy industry and leveraged money is a dangerous career infested with sociopaths, and money laundering (loan sharks) banks with links to espionage agents, drug cartels, fraud, corruption, political campaign funds, and other criminality…
Also obvious is the case of suicide by “seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head”, not a believable suicide and more likely a murder.
William K. Black wrote the book: The Best Way To Rob A Bank Is To Own One; and there are many other books and reports about the criminality in the financial industry from Wall Street, NY to London, to Hong Kong, and beyond.
Below is my effort, by no means exhaustive, in the tedious task of referencing news reports to at least read if all the executives or family were reported as sudden deaths. I do not think this was intended as a prank or hoax, and I do think the list is too sensational and could be considerably shortened and downplayed with fewer cases that only include the truly suspicious deaths.
My findings are added in RED to not be confused with the original text. ~Ron

..”Anonymous posted an astonishing list of dead bankers  If you had any doubts about the dead banker meme, take a look at this list and how these people died. Simply stunning . . . . .
Though this list is not sourced to anything other than Anonymous, (and therefore could be a spoof) it looks convincing and could be easily cross checked. I have not done that because in this case “easy” would take several hours to cross confirm out with a list this big and there is something big going on today that is eating my time. There is a thread about this on the Forum and perhaps someone there has the time to dig this list.


1. Nov 2014 – Shawn Miller, 42, [a Managing Director of Wall Street mega bank, Citigroup] banker found dead in bathtub with throat slashed.
[ This is what we can reliably report this morning: Police were called to the scene at 120 Greenwich Street at 3:11 p.m. on Tuesday, November 18, a trendy, upscale area of Tribeca in Lower Manhattan. A friend of Miller’s had become concerned when he could not reach him by phone and called the doorman of the building to ask him to check on him. The doorman found Miller in the tub of his bathroom with knife lacerations to the throat and arms and called the police. EMS responders declared Miller dead at the scene.]

3. July 2014– Julian Knott, 45, JPMorgan Executive Director,Global Tier 3 Network Operations, SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND
[ Making worldwide news last week was the violent deaths of JPMorgan technology executive Julian Knott and his wife, Alita, ages 45 and 47, respectively, in Jefferson Township, New Jersey. However, two other recent, sudden deaths of technology workers at JPMorgan have gone unreported by the media.

The bodies of the Knott couple, who have a teenage daughter and two teenage sons, were discovered by police on July 6, 2014 at approximately 1:12 a.m. According to a press release issued by the Morris County Prosecutor’s office, Jefferson Township Police Officers Tim Hecht and Dave Wroblewski responded to the Knott home located in the Lake Hopatcong section following a “report of two unconscious adults.”

Who made the call to police and whether the children were home at the time has not been announced by the police or the prosecutor’s office. After a preliminary investigation, the police announced on July 8 that they believe Julian Knott shot his wife repeatedly and then took his own life with the same gun.

Friends and colleagues say Julian Knott was a kind and thoughtful individual. The idea that he would orphan his three teenage children, leaving them with the memory of the brutal murder of their mother at the hands of a father they loved and trusted, is causing shock and disbelief among relatives and friends in the U.K.

The Morris County Prosecutor’s office has said the “investigation is ongoing” and anyone with information is asked to contact First Assistant Morris County Prosecutor Thomas Zelante at 973-285-6252 or by email to ]

[ Gabriel Magee fell 500ft to his death
*IMPORTANT: reports: “According to numerous sources close to the investigation of Gabriel Magee’s death, almost nothing thus far reported about his death has been accurate. This appears to stem from an initial poorly worded press release issued by the Metropolitan Police in London which may have been a result of bad communications between it and JPMorgan or something more deliberate on someone’s part.

The Metropolitan Police have provided me with their original press release. It reads:

“Police were called at approximately 08.02 hrs on Tuesday 28 January to reports of a man having fallen from a building at 25 Bank Street, E14 and landing on a ninth floor roof. London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance attended. The man was pronounced dead at the scene a short while later. The deceased is believed to be aged 39. We believe we know the identity of the deceased but await formal identification. Next of kin have been informed. No arrests have been made and the death is being treated as non-suspicious.”

33. Jan 2014– Tim Dickenson, SUDDEN DEATH cause unknown
[ On December 16, 2013, Zurich Insurance Group announced that George Quinn, the CFO at another Swiss insurer, Swiss Re, would be replacing its CFO who died, Wauthier, as CFO effective May 1, 2014. Before Quinn had time to pack up his office, Swiss Re’s U.K.-based Director of Communications, Tim Dickenson, died a suspicious death. The company has declined to provide details to any media concerning the death: not the exact date of the death, the location or the circumstances. What we know from the Wall Street Journal is that Dickenson died sometime between January 19 and the death of JPMorgan’s Gabriel Magee whose body was discovered on January 28.
Wall Street On Parade emailed Swiss Re to see if perhaps they had withheld information at the time of death to wait for more formal findings. A Zurich-based spokesperson, Michael Gawthorne, responded that “As a matter of policy Swiss Re cannot give out private information about its employees. Many thanks for your understanding.” We wrote back asking for Dickenson’s age on the basis that this was surely public information. A testy response came back including this sentence: “If this information is on the public record, then I would kindly ask you to make use of the public record.” Media “Relations” apparently has a whole new meaning in Zurich. ]

By Chris Greenwood for the Daily Mail Published: 15:25 EST, 29 July 2013
Police are investigating whether a wealthy banker whose plane crashed in the English Channel faked his own death.
Sascha Schornstein, 36, has not been seen since his single-engine small aircraft came down off the coast of Kent.
Investigators pulled a small amount of wreckage from the sea but have found no trace of the financier’s body.

They declined to reveal the results of checks on his bank accounts, credit cards and mobile phones that could indicate if he is still alive.
Yesterday, his wife Yulia, 28, appealed for up to £30,000 to help her solve the mystery of his disappearance.
She said her German husband, who worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland, was a methodical and careful man and she cannot understand what happened. ]

    Tycoon Scot Young’s fatal fall linked to five other mystery deaths

    Stephen Curtis died when his new £1.5million machine plunged to the ground a short distance from an airport.

    Days earlier he told a relative: “If anything happens to me in the next few weeks, it will not be an accident.”Details of the crash emerged as police investigated the gruesome death of Mr Young on Monday. The property developer was killed when he was impaled on railings after plunging 60ft from the window of a £3million home in Marylebone, central London.

    It was Mr Curtis who reportedly introduced Young and two members of his circle, Robert Curtis and Paul Castle, to Russian billionaires. As a legal adviser on major property deals, Stephen Curtis was also acquainted with Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky.

    Mr Young, Robert Curtis and Mr Castle all died after apparently committing suicide in the past four years. In March last year, exiled Mr Berezovsky was found dead in the bathroom of his home with a ligature round his neck.

    70-Year-Old Hedge Fund Founder Shot Dead By His Son
    04 Jan 2015

    We thought yesterday’s absurd story of former hedge fund manager James Crombie, founder of Paron Capital Management, who was arrested after found squatting in a million dollar Maryland house, would be as strange as it gets for hedge fund news this weekend. We were wrong: moments ago the WSJ reported that Thomas Gilbert, founder of the $200 million Wainscott hedge fund, whose success Gilbert said previously had come from investing in biotech funds, was found dead with a single bullet to the head in his Manhattan apartment this afternoon, allegedly shot by none other than his 30-year-old son.

    From the WSJ:

    Thomas Gilbert, 70 years old, founder of the Wainscott Capital Partners Fund, was fatally shot around 3:30 p.m. by a 30-year-old man believed to be his son, the official said. The alleged shooter’s mother called 911 shortly after she found Mr. Gilbert in the bedroom with a handgun nearby, the official said.


    Mr. Gilbert was declared dead inside the Turtle Bay apartment, the official said.


    Mr. Gilbert and his son—whose name police didn’t release—were believed to be discussing differences in their relationship before the shooting, but no motive had been determined Sunday evening, the official said. Police said Sunday evening no one had been arrested.

    NY Daily News adds more:

    The founder of a $200 million hedge fund was gunned down Sunday in his East Side apartment during a fight with his 30-year-old son, who remains on the loose. Thomas Gilbert Sr., the 70-year-old founder and president of Wainscott Capital Partners, was shot in the head during the violent encounter with his son, Thomas Gilbert Jr., cops said.


    The 3:31 p.m. murder inside the senior Gilbert’s multimillion-dollar apartment at 20 Beekman Pl. near E. 50th St. sent cops fanning out across the tony Sutton Place neighborhood seeking the son, who fled the murder scene on foot, officials said. A porter at the luxury building said he had seen Gilbert Sr. earlier Sunday, but the financier gave no indication of trouble brewing. “I opened the door. He goes outside, he comes in, like always,” said the porter, who described Gilbert as “friendly,” “very nice” and a “gentleman.”


    Police said Gilbert was dead at the scene from the single gunshot wound to the head.


    Known as a Wall St. wizard, Gilbert founded his hedge fund in 2011 and helped build it into thriving firm managing $200 million in total assets.

    Gilbert was a big biotech investor:

    In an interview in November, Gilbert said his company’s success came from investing in biotech funds.


    “The performance that we had in September and October really set us apart,” he told “People wanted to see how we performed in a bear market and that worked out brilliantly for us. We’re not trying to beat all the biotech funds, we’re basically trying to avoid drawdowns.”

    From Gilbert’s website bio:

    Thomas S. Gilbert founded Wainscott Capital Partners Fund, LP in 2011, and is the Managing Member of the General Partnership, Wainscott Capital Partners, LLC and is President of Wainscott Capital Management, LLC, the management company. A graduate of Princeton and Harvard Business School, Mr. Gilbert has extensive knowledge of the alternative investment space having spent 40 years on Wall Street with direct investing experience in the stock market, as well as private equity, real estate, and the fixed income market. Previously, Mr. Gilbert was a Co-Founder of Syzygy Therapeutics, a private equity biotech asset acquisition fund, which focused on identifying and investing in late-stage biotech drug candidates, with potential for billion dollar markets. Mr. Gilbert left Syzygy in April 2011 to form Wainscott Capital Partners. Mr.Gilbert founded and ran Knowledge Delivery Systems, Inc as Chairman and CEO from 2000 through May, 2009, Chairman through December, 2010, and is currently a Director of KDS. He is a former Managing Director of Venture Capital at Loeb Partners Corporation, where he was responsible for originating, structuring, and monitoring a broad spectrum of private equity portfolio investments. Mr. Gilbert is currently a Director of North Atlantic Holding Company, Inc. in addition to Knowledge Delivery Systems.

    To be sure, the newsflow out of hedge fund land at the start of every year when the books are squared away tends to get crazy, but this is far and beyond the pale and even put to shame the story of Kim Karapetyan, 29-year old Moscow Hedge Fund wunderkind, who instead of facing his investors following massive losses decided to simply… disappear.

    Murderous Son, Who Killed His Hedge Fund Father Over $200 Allowance, Was A Princeton Economist Grad

    6 Sept 2015

    The most bizarre story from the past weekend was the shocking murder of Tom Gilbert, 70, founder of the Wainscott biotech-focused hedge fund,
    who was shot dead in his Sutton Place apartment on Sunday Afternoon: shocking because the alleged shooter was none other than his Millennial, hence unemployed, 30-year-old son. What was certainly unclear at the time was what would be the motivation of a son to kill his successful and wealthy father, especially in such dramatic cold blood.
    son accused of murder
    We now know not only the motivation, thanks to AP:

    The son of a millionaire Manhattan hedge fund founder who allegedly gunned down his dad over his allowance has been arraigned on a second-degree murder charge, authorities said.

    A law enforcement source told the New York Post that Thomas Gilbert Jr. had just been told by his father that he would only receive $400 for spending money per month from that point on in addition to $2,400 per month for rent. The younger Gilbert had previously received $600 per month.

    “She [Mrs. Gilbert] found Senior on the floor with a bullet hole in the head,” said Boyce. “She also found a gun resting on his chest with his left hand covering it.”

    … but also the alleged psychopath’s background:

    Gilbert Jr. attended Princeton, graduating in 2009 with a degree in economics. Authorities said he had no recent work history.

    Gilbert Jr. has a pending criminal case in the town of Southampton, on eastern Long Island.

    Gilbert Jr., who has an address in the hamlet of Wainscott, was arrested Sept. 18 on a charge of criminal contempt. Southampton town police say he violated an order of protection issued in Brooklyn in June. Police say he confronted a man named Peter N. Smith at Sagg Main Beach in Sagaponack on Sept. 1.

    He has pleaded not guilty and has a Feb. 2 court date scheduled.

    Still, remember: when dealing with murderous psychopathic Princeton economists, correlation is not always causation.

    “Cheerful” Dutch Financier, Fourth ABN Amro Banker Suicide. 36 Banker Suicides in 2014


    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.”

    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.”

    Chris leaves behind a son – who had recently been cleared of cancer.

    * * *

    This is the 4th ABN Amro suicide in recent years…

    In December last year, missing couple, Thieu (64) [a relationship manager at ABN Amro] and Ellen (55) Leenen from Valkenswaard were found dead in their car Monday afternoon in the Bocholt-Herentals canal in Mol (Belgium). The circumstances under which the car is hit water, point to suicide, police said.

    In April last year killed former ABN Amro board member Jan-Peter Schmittman even suicide.

    In 2009, ABN-Amro banker and Fentener Vlissingen scion Huibert Boumeester an end to his life in London to put a bullet through his head. Cause for the suicide were missed Madoff investments, was then suggested.

    Now so many of you sent me various versions of this article it would be impossible to thank you all, but the really interesting thing about it is, that it occurred when there were two other significant international stories about what our “good friends” in the world of high international mafia …. er… finance have been up to.

    The first story is that it only took 18 days into the new year before there was yet another suspicious banker death. The trouble here is, which banker one is talking about. We could, for example, be talking about Michael Flanagan, a United Kingdom/New Zealand banker found in the U.K.’s lake district. Oh, did we mention that he used to work for the Royal Bank of Scotland and for Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation(HSBC)?

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

    Or was that suspicious death that of First Global banker Kirt Adlam, found shot to death in his car in Jamaica’s capital, Kingston?

    Jamaika: First Global-Banker in seinem Auto erschossen

    Or was it the death of Omar Meza, a vice president for (please note) AIG(Body of missing exec., San Diego native, found in Palm Desert), who was

    “…found Thursday in a pond at a Marriott resort where he had been staying, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said Friday.”

    So that’s three bankers in a week.

    Ok… “Nothing to see here, move along folks…” So let’s move along to the second bizarre story about banking to hit in more or less the same time period. Germany, you’ll recall, was “a tiny bit miffed” when it learned that not only was the USA spying on Frau Merkel’s cell phone, but that the New York Federal Reserve was reluctant to return some of Germany’s gold, which the latter had requested be repatriated. (And, as I’ve pointed out, the episode has a curious resemblance to a similar episode in 1928, recounted[no doubt only in part] by then Reichsbank president Hjalmar Schacht in his memoirs. For those who don’t know the episode, Hjalmar was visiting his good friend Mr. Strong, Governor of the NY Fed, who was taking him on a tour of the facilities, when Hjalmar asked to see the vault with the Reichsbank’s gold. Oddly, the Fed’s staff came up empty, unable to locate it[!], and Herr Schacht simply smiled at his friend, and said, “That’s ok, I know you’re good for it.”)

    Well, to make a long story very short, you’ll recall that the popular movement in Germany to repatriate its gold from the NY Fed stalled, and finally the Bundesbank revealed that it had only been able to repatriate about five tons. Well, not so, according to the latest stories. The repatriation went ahead, but quietly and secretly, to the tune of about 120 tons:

    Germany’s Bundesbank Resumes Gold Repatriation; Transfers 120 Tonnes Of Physical Gold From Paris And NY Fed

    This comes, as the article notes, at a time when the “European” central bank is considering its own round of “quantitative easing” to help stitch together another patchwork repair to the European Union quilt. But, as the Zero Hedge article avers, the German gold repatriation may be connected, not just to issues of mistrust of the NY Fed, but to that “quantitative easing” itself:

    “And the punchline:

    “The Bundesbank assures the identity and authenticity of German gold reserves throughout the transfer process – from when they are removed from warehouses abroad until they are stored in Frankfurt am Main. As soon as the gold was removed from the warehouse locations abroad, Bundesbank employees cross-checked the lists of bars belonging to the Bundesbank against the information on the bars removed. Finally, once they arrived in Frankfurt am Main, all the transferred gold bars were thoroughly and exhaustively inspected and verified by the Bundesbank. When all the inspections had been concluded, no irregularities came to light with regard to the authenticity, fineness and weight of the bars.

    “A curious amount of precautions and safeguards when transporting the “safe” and “untainted” gold held at the NY Fed to Frankfurt. Almost as if the Bundesbank, gasp, did not trust the quality and content of the NY Fed-held gold, nor its well-meaning intentions.

    Which leads us to the only relevant question: now that the “diplomatic difficulties” have been overcome and the Bundesbank is back on track to repatriating precisely the right amount of gold from the NY Fed to indicate that it has far less faith in the US central bank than it did when it was barely conducting any transfers in 2013, just how worse as the diplomatic difficulties now? We expect to get at least a partial answer on Thursday when Mario Draghi finally announces his long-overdue €500 billion QE program, with Bundesbank’s Jens Weidmann, sitting quietly in a corner, and ignored by the ex-Goldman head of the ECB, contemplated just how much more, if not all, gold (there is still some 517 tonnes of gold left to be repatriated to Germany from NY and Paris) he should withdraw now in preparation for the “next steps”?”(boldface Zero Hedge’s emphasis, italicized emphasis mine)

    Then there’s story number three, which follows our earlier blog this week, about Russia and China opening their own credit ratings agency, being fed up with S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch, for not only are the two largest BRICSA nations fed up with the clear signs of fraud and favoritism at work in the Western system, Russia is going one step further:

    Russian Central Bank Bans Western Ratings Agencies

    To put it in Russian Bureaucratese:

    On dates of credit ratings’ use for the purpose of Bank of Russia regulations

    “In line with scope of authority established by Bank of Russia Ordinance No. 3453-U, dated 25 November 2014, ‘On the Specifics of Credit Ratings’ Use -to Implement Bank of Russia Regulations’, the Bank of Russia Board of Directors determined the dates when credit ratings shall be assigned to implement Bank of Russia regulations.

    “Under this Ordinance, should any Bank of Russia regulation contain information on credit rating assigned by Standard&Poor’s or Fitch Ratings or Moody’s Investors Service to credit institutions or other Russian legal entities, constituent territories, municipal entities, their issued securities or other financial instruments, the date when the mentioned rating is assigned (hereinafter, the rating date) may be determined by the decision of the Bank of Russia Board of Directors in the corresponding regulation.

    “According to Bank of Russia Board of Directors’ decision, the rating date for credit institutions and their issued financial instruments, including securities, to implement Bank of Russia regulations, shall be 1 March 2014; as for other entities, listed in the Ordinance, and their issued securities, this rating date shall be 1 December 2014.”(Boldface emphasis Zero Hedge’s)

    Or, take your ratings and go, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out. One suspects that Russia and China’s move to form their own credit ratings agency might be followed by similar moves this year from other countries, perhaps even in Europe.

    The real temptation here is to view all these things as connected, and indeed, I suspect the second and third stories are related in a very simple way via growing mistrust of the “stable” institutions and corporations of western, i.e., American, finance. The real question, though, is whether there’s a connection to the sad story of more dead bankers. In my high octane speculation of the day, I suspect there is, and its revealed by a few “bland” statements in the wikipedia article about AIG:

    American International Group

    We note first its gigantic scale of business:

    “AIG’s corporate headquarters are in New York City, its British headquarters are in London, continental Europe operations are based in La Défense, Paris, and its Asian headquarters are in Hong Kong. The company serves 98% of the Fortune 500 companies, 96% of Fortune 1000, and 90% of Fortune Global 500, and insures 40% of Forbes 400 Richest Americans. AIG was ranked 40th largest company in the 2014 Fortune 500 list.[5] According to the 2014 Forbes Global 2000 list, AIG is the 42nd-largest public company in the world.[6] As of June 1, 2014, it had a market capitalization of $78.48 billion, per Google Finance.”

    And secondly its little “accounting problems”:

    “In 2005, AIG became embroiled in a series of fraud investigations conducted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Justice Department, and New York State Attorney General‘s Office. Greenberg was ousted amid an accounting scandal in February 2005.[29][30][31] The New York Attorney General’s investigation led to a $1.6 billion fine for AIG and criminal charges for some of its executives.[32]

    “On May 1, 2005, investigations conducted by outside counsel at the request of AIG’s Audit Committee and the consultation with AIG’s independent auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP resulted in AIG’s decision to restate its financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2003, 2002, 2001 and 2000, the quarters ended March 31, June 30 and September 30, 2004 and 2003 and the quarter ended December 31, 2003.[33] On November 9, 2005, the company was reported of delaying its third-quarter earnings report because it must restate earlier financial results to correct accounting errors.[34]”

    And finally, what a great deal of its business is in:

    “Expansion to the credit default insurance market

    “Martin J. Sullivan became CEO of the company. He began his career at AIG as a clerk in its London office in 1970.[35] AIG then took on tens of billions of dollars of risk associated with mortgages. It insured tens of billions of dollars of derivatives against default, but did not purchase reinsurance to hedge that risk. Secondly, it used collateral on deposit to buy mortgage-backed securities. When losses hit the mortgage market in 2007-2008, AIG had to pay out insurance claims and also replace the losses in its collateral accounts.[36]

    “AIG purchased the remaining 39% that it did not own of online auto insurance specialist 21st Century Insurance in 2007 for $749 million.[37] With the failure of the parent company and the continuing recession in late 2008, AIG rebranded its insurance unit to 21st Century Insurance.[38][39]

    “On June 11, 2008, three stockholders, collectively owning 4% of the outstanding stock of AIG, delivered a letter to the Board of Directors of AIG seeking to oust CEO Martin Sullivan and make certain other management and Board of Directors changes. This letter was the latest volley in what the Wall Street Journal called a “public spat” between the company’s board and management, on the one hand, and its key stockholders, and former CEO Maurice Greenberg on the other hand.[40]

    “On June 15, 2008, after disclosure of financial losses and subsequent to a falling stock price, Sullivan resigned and was replaced by Robert B. Willumstad, Chairman of the AIG Board of Directors since 2006. Willumstad was forced by the US government to step down and was replaced by Edward M. Liddy on September 17, 2008.[41] AIG’s board of directors named Robert Benmosche CEO on August 3, 2009 to replace Mr. Liddy, who earlier in the year announced his retirement.[42]”

    In other words, AIG is a major player insuring all those quadrillions of dollars in credit default swaps and derivatives that seem to have fallen right off the financial radar in recent years. AIG, to put it somewhat simplistically, is not only “too big to fail” it’s also “too big to bail.”

    Perhaps, just perhaps, the story of the dead bankers is related, not simply to bank owned life insurance, as some have speculated, nor simply to the possibility that some of these bankers may have discovered anomalies in the high frequency trading mechanisms conducting much international commerce within the west(anomalies that may have led them to conclude there may be some “outside factor” at work in those trading networks, revealing its footprint in those algorithms, as I myself have speculated), but perhaps, just perhaps, it is also related not simply to banking, to but insurance, the real hidden power and player, and to the insurance of derivatives. If so, then this puts Germany’s, Russia’s, and China’s financial moves in the past few years into a new interpretive context, for perhaps those nations and their financial and intelligence services have connected some unusual dots, and reached some unusual conclusions, conclusions that require them to build a parallel redundancy into international financial clearing, and to establish their own credit ratings agencies.

    It’s going to be an interesting year.
