A man jumped off of JP Morgan's Hong Kong headquarters to his death, according to George Chen of the South China Morning Post.


Employees of the firm say that he is a forex trader with JPM, though the SCMP is still waiting for confirmation from the bank.

This comes at a delicate time for the financial industry, when a spate of deaths - mostly in London - have alarmed observers.

Witnesses say that police tried to stop the man from jumping from the 30 story building, 10 floors of which are used by JP Morgan, around 2:00 or 3:00 pm, but to no avail.
