Analyst who helped rebuild firm after 9/11 dies


Sad to report.

Jeffrey Spetalnick, who as an equity analyst in 2001 joined the rebuilding effort at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods after the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center, has died. He was 48.

Bloomberg News reports that he died on May 26 at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx, New York, according to his sister, Abby Siegel. The cause was Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare bone cancer.

Since January 2013, Spetalnick was a principal at Nighthawk Capital, a Hong Kong-based hedge fund company focusing on financial services investments.

In October 2001, with about a decade of experience as an equity analyst, he was hired as director of quantitative research at KBW, a boutique investment bank that specializes in the banking industry. On September 11, the firm lost 67 employees in New York’s World Trade Center, where the company’s headquarters were located on the 88th and 89th floors of the South Tower.
