Six financial executives died in that period - most, obviously, by suicide, and perhaps all by suicide. But there are still questions about some including the man who shot himself 8 times with a nail gun.
Almost all were fairly high level executives. 4 were in London, 3 in the US, and one in Zurich. We can now add one from Hong Kong. Li Junjie worked for JP Morgan and becomes the third executive from that company to have suicided.
His suicide came to light yesterday when JP Morgan Hong Kong pulled out of an art display that reminded them of the picture taken of Li Junjie before he jumped to his death.
A display of human figures on rooftops - by sculptor Sir Antony Gormley - has reportedly been cancelled because of the suicide of a Hong Kong bank worker.

But investment bank JP Morgan is said to have asked for sponsorship to be withdrawn after one of its employees jumped to his death from a building.
The 31 sculptures that form the display were due to have been installed on Hong Kong's buildings after an exhibition of Sir Antony's work at the city's White Cube gallery.
However, the rooftop show was cancelled after Hong Kong Land, a property company, withdrew its sponsorship, according to The Art Newspaper.
The paper says that a branch of JP Morgan, which leases an office from Hong Kong Land, requested that the sponsor withdraw because of the suicide of one of its employees in February.
