Another Suicide…

Those pesky suicides among banking people is really kind of annoying aren’t they?
Earlier this year the former chief financial officer at Freddie Mac, David Kellermann, is said to have committed suicide through hanging. Then Finn W.

Now another magnate James McDonald, a prominent advisor to wealthy families as chief executive of investment management group Rockefeller & Co, died of a single gunshot wound on Sunday 13th of sept 2009. Earlier this year, Mr. McDonald was one of the directors who left the board of lender CIT Group…


One is left pondering why such individuals with lots of money, power and from pretty stable family and personal histories suddenly jump of the deep end. Not that such individuals cannot be depressed or commit suicide, I’m just saying…
