A 28-year old Manhattan investment banker has died after an apparent suicide, police sources said. Kenneth Bellando, who worked at Levy Capital since January, was found dead on the sidewalk outside his East Side building on March 12, after allegedly jumping from the sixth-story roof, sources said.

Bellando, a former investment bank analyst at JPMorgan, is the son of John Bellando, chief operating officer and chief financial officer at Condé Nast. His brother, John, a top Chief Investment Officer with JPMorgan, works on risk exposure valuations.

There have been a spate of suicides amongst financial services employees since the beginning of 2014. They’ve occurred in London, the U.S., Singapore and Hong Kong.  Source

1. William Broeksmit, a 58-year-old former senior executive for Deutsche Bank AG, was found dead in at home after apparently taking his own life in South Kensington in central London, on January 26

2. Karl Slym, the 51 year old Tata Motors managing director was discovered dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27

3. Gabriel Magee, the 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, whodied after plummeting from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London’s Canary Wharf on January 27

4. Mike Dueker, the 50-year-old chief economist of US bank Russell Investments was discovered dead near to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State on January 31

5. Richard Talley, the 57 year old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was found dead on February 4 after apparently shooting himself with a nail gun.

6. Tim Dickenson, who was a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, died in late January, in as yet unexplained circumstances

7. Ryan Henry Crane, the 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago on February 3 at his home in Connecticut

8. Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ in Hong Kong on February 19

9. James Stuart, the former National Bank of Commerce CEO was found dead in Scottsdale, Arizona on the morning of February 19. The cause of death has yet to be announced

10. Autumn Radtke, the CEO of First Meta, a digital currency exchange firm who was found dead on February 28 outside her Singapore apartment.

11. Ed Reilly, 47, a divorced father-of-three who worked as a trader at Vertical Group in Manhattan. He jumped in front of a Long Island Rail Road train on March 11

12. Kenneth Bellando, 28, an investment banker at Levy Capital Partners jumped off his building in Manhattan’s Upper East Side on March 12

Amazingly this is still continuing.  Again though, I want to warn people, do your research. See how many bankers kill themselves every year and compare it to what is happening now.  It’s a fact that bankers kill themselves.  It is a high risk, high stress job.  Do your own research.  But isn’t it very interesting that while these bankers are offing themselves (or being killed off) that Russia is pushing the world to the brink right now? I mean its like the 1930s all over again minus the depression. Stay tuned..

    Who jumps to their suicide from a 6 story building?? He could have survived and lived the rest of his life a paraplegic!

    These are not coincidences, or suicides! The guy killing himself with a nail gun that he shot thru himself a dozen times is just more proof that it was suicide. To say it was is an insult to our intelligence! Why not get a real gun? A nail gun would be a horrible and extremely painful death!

    r take the red pill before its too late humanity.

    They were all probably Manchurian candidates .

    could be due to a heavy loss/wrong speculation. I went through this myself years ago.
    the feeling is terrible. you are a living dead. I remember that I almost walked into a lake several times, and I say walked, not jumped. completely conscious, just to get it over.
    anyway, who knows ?

  • hungry4food

    I wonder if these bankers were all involved in a High Frequency trading scheme that is now starting to unravel ?????

    I have too much love for out country to learn anymore about the truth behind these stories.

    It grieves me to see the Satanic One World leaders ownership of our Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches along with the numerous non governmental empires of the “Federal Reserve Banks”, World Bank, IMF, CFR, and the list goes on.

      Because you have too much love for our country is exactly why you need to learn everything! Knowledge is power and we need to take our country back from the parasites. Never give up searching for the truth.

    Feinstein is going to initiate legislation that you can only jump from the 10th floor or less. If there are multiple jumpers they can’t be wearing tactical clothing. There will be mental health counseling for ALL survivors. You will not be able to work in a multi-floored building until your demise. If after your demise, and cremation is your way out, spreading of the ashes will be against the law for fear of spreading mental issues. Harry Reid has promised that said bill(SB 666) will be put forward for a vote. The House has not yet read the bill, but feels that they must pass it then they’ll read it. Stay tuned to ABC, CBS, NBC, And MSNBC for updates.

    I posted a comment, but I guess it wasn’t appreciated.

    Could these suicides have been assisted?

  • StavoV

    Another JPMorgan banker jumps to his death. Well, what a pleasant surprise. :wink:

  • amommamust

    Mort, I’d be curious if you could dig up anything on those Wall Street suicides in the 30′s. Now I wonder… were those really suicides? They had much better control of the media back then.

  • beefree

    assisted suicides

  • dogface

    That’s it, I’m going to banking school
