Prominent Hedge Fund Trader Jumps to His Death In Manhattan… Will The SNAP IPO Mark The Top?

by IWB · Published March 2, 2017 · Updated March 2, 2017

Kevin Bell, most recently head of Credit Risk at Arrowgrass Capital, jumped from a ninth-floor kitchen window at the Apthorp building on West End Avenue near West 79th Street around 7:20 a.m. He landed on scaffolding that was set up in front of the building and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bell left a note indicating he had been depressed, the source said. He had a history of depression, the source added.

According to the NY Post, Bell left behind a wife and two daughters. His family was at home when he jumped, according to the source. “The family is hysterical. He was under a lot of meds. He did not give a specific reason why he jumped, but he was depressed,” the source said.

Bell, a graduate of Duke University, worked at Arrowgrass Capital Partners, where he was head of credit risk, according to his LinkedIn page. Arrowgrass managed $4.5 billion as of mid-2016. It is run by former Deutsche Bank traders Henry Kenner and Nicholas Niell, and in 2015 had been stocking its ranks with Saba alumni after losing several employees in its credit-trading group in April. The firm focuses on strategies including corporate distressed assets in the U.S. and Europe

    On March 1st, 2017, the New York Post reported the suicide of Kevin Bell, head of credit risk at British hedge fund Arrowgrass Capital Partners LLP. He had previously worked at Saba Capital Management, Citadel Investment group, Citigroup and Deutsche Bank, according to his Linkedin page. An investigation into Arrowgrass Capital Partners in the aftermath of his death has revealed that Arrowgrass was connected to think tanks tied to DNC propaganda chief David Brock, has ties to a number to individuals and corporations with histories of fraudulent financial activity and uses a web developer which appears to be a shell company. Mr. Bell's suicide provides a glimpse into a more shadowy element of the finance world where the line between legitimate business and organized crime becomes increasingly thin.

    I. Number Of Arrowgrass Employees Had Come From Sabu Capital Management, Arrowgrass Is Connected To Establishment-Run Think Tanks

    Arrowgrass Capital Partners appears to have had a number of employees present at their firm who had recently come from Sabu Capital Management. In November 2015, Bloomberg reported that Paul Andorio, a former partner at Sabu, was joining Arrowgrass to work alongside Bell in credit risk. Andorio was one of multiple former Sabu employees who had recently moved to Arrowgrass after the firm had lost several employees in its credit trading group.
