Sad to report the recent deaths of two high profile bankers.
Bloomberg reports that Frederic R. Lexow II, who worked his way up from the back office to running the equities-trading desk during a 22-year career at JPMorgan Chase’s asset-management unit, has died. He was 49.
Lexow died on Sept. 22 at Yale-New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. He had had a heart attack related to complications from a two-year battle with recurring staph infections, according to his wife Nanette Buziak Lexow.
The news organisation also reports that Lorenzo Weisman, a banker with global roots and expansive interests whose boutique investment bank, Hill Street Capital LLC, was purchased in 2010 by BNP Paribas, has died. He was 67.
He died on Sept. 22 at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. The cause was brain cancer, according to his wife, the former Danielle-Camille Maysonnave.
