Bankers Lament Early Death Of 'Nice Guy' Credit Trader

In Memory Of Andrew Corbett

Sad to report the recent death of Andrew Corbett, known as 'Mumfy', a credit trader over at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International (MUSI), who was based in London.

Corbett enjoyed a successful career in the City going back almost two decades, also working previously for Merrill Lynch.

Just 41-years old, he died of asthma-related heart failure immediately following the successful completion of a half-marathon in Essex on Sunday. Although he was attended to by medics at the scene, he was pronounced dead after being taken to a local hospital.

Trent Hagland, Head of Credit Trading at MUSI, said: 'I had the honour of working with Andrew for many years. Not only was he a fantastic professional but also a very good friend to all those who worked with him. His attitude, loyalty and integrity were of a standard rarely seen in this industry. Everyone associated with Andrew will miss him dearly and never forget him'.

Colleagues and friends are now raising funds in his memory for charity and, in just 3 days, over £44,000 ($71,100) has already been raised.

Comments from donors on the JustGiving page established in Andrew's memory include:

'Mumf...I was your graduate trainee, you were my hero. Was an honour to be your friend'.

'What a fantastic guy. Great working with you and a pleasure knowing you and calling you a friend. Cheers Mumfy!!'.

'My sincere condolences; during my years at Merrill Lynch, I did many trades across the pond w/ Andrew - he was always patient, professional and fun'.

'Mumf - an amazing colleague and a great example of what a guy should be like. You taught me a lot and i'll always remember it. Miss you already'.

'He was one of the most professional and competent people I've ever met, and he always made me smile'.

'Wherever you are mumfy, I hope you are wearing the spiderman tshirt and amusing everyone like you used to in market gatherings. We will all miss you'.

'A market legend and a loss for us all. Keep smiling on us all from up there mumfy'.

'Mumfy was the nicest guy in the business, an example to us all'.
