William Broeksmit, a recently retired executive at Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) who worked at Merrill Lynch in the 1990s with Anshu Jain, now Deutsche Bank’s co-chief executive officer, has died. He was 58.
He died on Jan. 26 at his home in London, according to a memo to employees obtained by Bloomberg News. Deutsche Bank spokesman Michael Golden confirmed the contents, which didn’t give a cause. In an interview, a spokesman for the London police said a 58-year-old man was found hanging in a residence on Evelyn Gardens, the street where Broeksmit lived, and that authorities aren’t treating the death as suspicious.
