Investment banker in death fall said feared suffering from stress


Sad to report.

Thomas J. Hughes, who in five years following college moved through investment banking jobs at UBS, Citigroup and then to Moelis, has died. He was 29.

Bloomberg News reports that his body was found on May 28 outside his residence at 1 West St., where he lived on the 24th floor of the 31-story building, John Grimpel, a New York Police Department spokesman, said in a telephone interview.

Hughes’s injuries were 'consistent with a fall from an elevated location', police spokeswoman Annette Markowski said.

Hughes joined Moelis in February 2014, according to his profile. The firm - founded in 2007 by Ken Moelis, a former president of investment banking at UBS - specializes in advising on mergers and acquisitions. The company went public last year.

The Daily Mail has reported that the banker's father has said that he fears his son turned to drink and drugs to cope with the stress of work.
