**Update March/April 2018
Changed the dates and included some more up-to-date references for the banker deaths. New deaths added.
**Update October 2017
There was a number of deaths in 2017, most of them I picked up second hand. As I’ve said before, I try to stick to the main players.
I’ve added the deaths for this year to the list.
**Update October 2016
Yep. The list keeps growing. Just focusing on major players, or cases where ‘foul-play’ may be involved. I’ve done a little research into the causes of all these bankers dying, which can be found at the bottom of the article.
Having had to spend too much time on youtube recently, has led to the accumulation of the latest and most credible conspiracy theories.
“Everyone is expendable”
I remember this guy telling me a story about the Porton Down scientists in the 70’s, and how they all went missing or died, after conducting a lot of ‘hush hush’ experiments.
I was perhaps 26 at the time. Youngster.
Also, David Kelly, our ‘Walter Mitty’ style friend the nuclear inspector who blew the whistle on the ‘dodgy dossier’, and, ironically said he’d end up dead in the woods.
3 weeks later he was found dead in the woods…..
These bankers are no different.
China’s economy is the final dollop of shit heading toward the fan.
Today they announced that they were experiencing the slowest level of growth in 25 years…
So here’s the list.

List of dead bankers 2020
86. January 21st, 2020 – Nuno Ribeiro da Cunha: Private Banking Director, EuroBic.
1st Banker death of the year and in keeping with the mysterious sets of circumstances that surround the other banker deaths on this list.
Nuno Ribeiro da Cunha was banker for daughter of the president of Angola and Africa’s richest woman, (Forbes estimates her wealth at $2.1 billion), Isabel dos Santos. Ms. dos Santos’s father was president of Angola for 38 years until September 2017. When his successor, João Lourenço gained office, he launched a corruption drive.
Prosecutors in Angola were alleging that Ms. dos Santos carried out transactions with government-owned companies that resulted in a $1.14 billion loss for the state. On 19th January, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), gained 700,000 documents linking Ms. Dos Santos to preferential business dealing of the government in land, oil, diamond and telecoms deals over the period of her father’s tenure.
Earlier this month, Mr. Ribeiro da Cunha was found bleeding from several knife wounds to his wrists and stomach by a household employee in one of his holiday homes on the coast south of Lisbon.
Earlier this month, Nuno Ribeiro da Cunha, 45 years old was discovered in what police describe as a ‘suicide’, consistent with hanging.
Mr. Ribeiro da Cunha was a suspect in the wide ranging investigation into the deals of Ms. Dos Santos.
The national director of Portugal’s judicial police force, Luís Neve, said on Tuesday, “everything suggests that no third party was involved” in the banker’s death.
85. November 29th, 2019 – Thomas Bowers: Former Deutsche Bank employee and Head of US Wealth-Management.
Bowers ‘line managed’ wealth management and private banking through a number of less senior private bankers and ‘wealth managers’, one of them being a Rosemary Vrablic.
Vrablic managed the portfolios of a number of clients, one of them being a Mr. Donald Trump.
Through the auspices of Mr. Bowers, Deutsche Bank provided lines of credit to Trump on the basis of using him as a ‘loss leader’ in order to attract other High Risk/High Return clients.
From 2010-2015, Deutsche/Trump relationship soared, culminating in a loan to Jared Kushner, who had previously been banned from doing deals directly with Deutsche due to his father being a convicted felon.
The FBI were investigating Thomas Bowers as being the ‘Gatekeeper’ to documents detailing Deutsche Bank’s High Risk/High Return strategy at that time.
Bowers was found dead with neck injuries consistent with hanging.
84. September 25th, 2019 – Aivar Rehe: Former CEO of Danske Bank, Estonia, was found dead in his own back yard on Wednesday 25th September.
The Danish bank is being investigated in Estonia, the US, Denmark, the UK and France for handling $230bn that flowed through its Estonian branch on behalf of non-residents from Russia and other former Soviet states between 2007 and 2015.
In keeping with the similar deaths on this list, police were opaque – “The body has no signs of violence, neither does anything point to an accident,” police said, declining to provide further details out of courtesy to Mr Rehe’s family. There will be no investigation into his death, they added.
Another one for the list.
83. August 10th, 2019 – Jeffery Epstein: Limited Partner at Bear Sterns and Liquid Funding Ltd. Convicted pedophile. Jeffery Epstein was jailed and facing charges of pedophilia and child trafficking.
Placed on suicide watch on the 25th July after being discovered with markings around his neck. By the 9th August, suicide watch had been removed, (by the DOJ), and Epstein was found with neck trauma, ‘consistent with hanging’, in his cell by prison officers.
Perhaps the most notable aspect of Epstein was his high profile connections. Previous businesses were in financial fixing for those of $1Bn worth or more. His early introduction to Bear Sterns where he started his career had been through a high profile introduction from one of his pupil’s fathers at the school where he then worked.
Jeffery Epstein with his ‘black book’ represented one of the greatest existential threats to the international elite. His actions, and his connections to the rich and famous are well know.
His trial was a chain of domino’s waiting to fall.
Funny that he should find himself dead.
82. August 8th, 2019 – : Former head of HFC Bank, First Direct and M&S Bank; and one of the key players in bringing sub-prime mortgages to the UK lending market.
Mr. Hill was under investigation by the FCA, most notably for overcharging credit-card customers on late payment fees and the legitimacy of his ‘Let-to-Buy‘ business.
Apparently, he had taking to talking to himself under his breath, buying expensive pictures and suffering night-terrors after sending FCA managers a picture of himself with a hunting rifle and the caption – “I’m going to intellectually slay you” and likening them to the Stazi.
Found dead in covered pool. Coroner verdict. Suicide.
