CEO Of Liechtenstein Bank Frick Murdered In Broad Daylight

Tyler Durden's picture


Over the weekend the world was gripped by the drama surrounding the mysterious murder-homicide of the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro and members of his family, and whether there is more foul play than meets the eye. However, that is nothing compared to what just happened in the tiny, and all too quiet Principality of Lichtenstein, where moments ago the CEO of local financial institution Bank Frick & Co. AG, Juergen Frick, was shot dead in the underground garage of the bank located in the city of Balzers.


Based on preliminary reports, the murder is the result of a disgruntled fund manager, Juergen Germann, who had previously been embroiled in a "bitter dispute" with the government and the bank. Bloomberg has more:

A 48-year-old man was shot dead in the underground garage of a financial institution in Balzers at 7:30 a.m. local time, the principality’s police said on its website. The suspect, Juergen Hermann, fled the scene in a Smart car with Liechtenstein number plates, according to police. Neither the victim nor the institution were identified in the statement.


The deceased was Juergen Frick, CEO of Bank Frick & Co. AG, Switzerland’s Radio 1 said in an e-mailed statement, citing employees of the bank. Calls to Bank Frick were answered by a voice-mail message saying the company is closed because of “a death.” It gave no further details.


Hermann is a fund manager who has been embroiled in a dispute with the Liechtenstein government and Bank Frick for many years, Switzerland’s Radio 1 said.


The Liechtenstein government and the country’s Financial Market Authority “illegally destroyed my investment company Hermann Finance and its funds, depriving me of my livelihood,” according to a website registered under the name Juergen Hermann of Hermann Finance AG.


He has filed lawsuits seeking recovery of 200 million Swiss francs ($225 million) from the government and 33 million francs from Bank Frick, according to the website. The lender “illegally enriched itself,” among other alleged crimes, it said.


A representative of Hermann’s lawyer declined to comment when reached by telephone. A call to Hermann Finance’s office was answered by an employee of a law firm who said his company isn’t related to Hermann Finance.

The narrative against the "publicly hostile" alleged shooter has already been flushed out.

Hermann has been “publicly hostile” to the country’s Financial Market Authority and some of its employees, forcing it to take security measures in consultation with the police, FMA spokesman Beat Krieger said in an e-mail today.


The escape vehicle was later found in the village of Ruggell, 25 kilometers (16 miles) north of Balzers, police said.


“The area is being searched by police with dogs and helicopters,” the 120-member police force said. Zurich police are helping to document the crime scene, spokesman Mario Cortesi said.

Here is the update form the local police station:

On Monday morning, it came in Balzers a homicide, the suspect is currently volatile.


Against 07.30 clock in an underground garage of a financial institution is a homicide in which a 48-year-old man was shot occurred. When volatile suspects are Jürgen Hermann from the Moors. He is armed and dangerous, according to police reports, the investigation of the National Police is in full swing.


Notes on a possible whereabouts of the suspects are requested immediately to the police landing +423 / 236 71 11. Upon encountering the suspect, it is important to exercise extreme caution.

Below is the profile of the murdered CEO, still on the bank's website:

As CEO Jürgen Frick is closely involved in all business activities of the bank with a special focus lying on client advisory, financing and financial product development. As well he supervises all real estate development projects of the Bank.


Jürgen is also Chairman of the Board at Crystal Fund Management AG, a subsidiary of Bank Frick & Co.


As for the bank itself:

Bank Frick is active in modern wealth management and provides a range of advisory services. As well it specializes in fund development and fund administration.


Our Bank entertains close ties to an efficient network of fiduciaries, insurers, tax experts, investment funds and law firms around the world.


We are completely independent. Our advice and our services cater exclusively to the individual needs and requirements of our clients.


Combinvest Establishment serves as holding for all bank shares. Family Frick is the majority stake holder.


After a successful career in international banking and fiduciary services, Kuno Frick senior founded in December 1998 Bank Frick & Co. AG. Due to his wide experience and excellent connections, Bank Frick proved an immediate success.


Since then, the bank’s assets under management have risen steadily. New business segments are continuously being added to the bank’s service portfolio, while existing ones are constantly being refined.


In autumn 2011, Bank Frick’s international presence was significantly enhanced with the opening of Bank Frick UK Branch in Mayfair, London.

Up until now it was mostly banker suicides. With the first open bank CEO murder, one wonders if there will be a change in the pattern.

This one is interesting, in that we know the reason and the rough duration of percolation. 

Given that older "reason" and extrapolating the amount of "new reasons" available and applying the applicable percolation timeframe, we should see an increasing amount of attacks, possibly approaching parabolic.

Keyser...That is NOT TRUE. That is a PARTIAL TRUTH.


The reason that the United Staes and, thus, the rest of the World is in such a plight is the INHERENT FRAUD AND DISHONESTY.


For all of those Bankers whom made those DISHONEST FRAUDLENT LOANS there were many PEOPLE whom initiated those "Liar's Loans" out of pure unadulterated GREED. They KNOWINGLY entered into those contracts without having any means to pay for those homes. They were COMPLICIT in the fraud. They were dishonest.


It will be fun shooting them too when it all collapses. They are as much of the enemy as the banksters.


Your level of participation is up to you whether it is a choice of complicity or a choice of resistance to fraud and dishonesty.


There are many bullets to be shared.

I'd say 1 or 2 of the deaths have been coincidence, circumstance, bad luck, fate.  But most of them, no.  One way to keep 5 men quiet is to make an example out of 1 of them.

Response to LatinaLover:  A very simplistic (though understandable) sentiment.  The problem is that you/we don't know the why?  If these are/were all potential whistle-blowers, then truth has once again been dealt a hard blow.  As much as we may despise the bankster criminals and the mafioso families behind them, not all bankers are a part of this crime of the centuries.  Jus' sayin'...

Yeah, that has to suck, getting murdered by a dude driving a Smart car.  That's kind of like losing to a vegan in a bareknuckle boxing match.

I still feel like the ABN Amro story is more significant.

I'd be interested to know what happened back on January 9th, 2013, note the gigantic volume spike around that time.

Delta Lloyd sells insurance in the ABN Amro banks.  For those unfamiliar with ABN Amro:

They were one of the entities that purchased the garbage Paulson/Goldman CDO's; both ABN Amro and Delta Lloyd were involved in RMBS packages of their own back in the mid 2000's. 

But, ABN Amro is even more famous on this site for their default on gold contracts.

Which happened in late March of 2013, and only very shortly preceded the famously epic "gold paper dump" in mid-April 2013.  ABN Amro is a nationalized entity in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.  

It is likely Delta Lloyd insures ABN Amro's products to include risk of contract/product default.  Jan Peter Schmittmann, the guy who was killed along with his family this weekend, was on the ABN Amro board until 2009 and was a current member of the Delta Lloyd board.

According to Dutch news sources, Schmittmann was clinically depressed, apparently he killed his wife and youngest daughter before doing himself in.

The fucker sued then nationalized ABN Amro for 18 million euros after being forced to resign. He got 'only' 8 million euros, still the highest severance ever paid in the Netherlands.

Maybe he discovered he had a conscience after all. Or he got bored when his new, idle life didn't offer the same opportunities to screw society. Personally, I'm hoping for many copy cats; let all the banker scum kill themselves and their progeny. Their ill gotten wealth is inherited, after all, as presumably are their fucked up sociopath genes.

There is a 75 years plus German entrepreneur with nothing to loose but old age for every double crossing Swiss banker who was supposed to hold his flight money.

Banking secrecy was the pillar of Swiss independence until
it was not.

Expect the death of Swiss independence since the death wish is being tilted towards the so called European Union.

Good riddance best bankers of the world, the world and banking in particular has been fucked up beyond repair.

No place for banksters of any sort hence we reset.

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, but three times is enemy action.” – Ian Flemming, Creator of James Bond

Appropriately, from the movie "Goldfinger." I've kept that in the back of my mind since I was a kid. Fortunately for me, this didn't apply where romance was involved. For the most part.

I never get tired of reading stories like this one. Too bad this is most likely bankster-on-bankster rather than the implementation of an idea whose time has come.

Tracking banker resignations or retirements may be the next step in this saga.

Frick was a high ranking lieutenant in the tribe, working out of Liechtenstein, a very efficient laundromat for dirty money, and a "noisy "murder (versus being "suicided") was obviously meant to send a message to others at relatively high levels.

Juergen Hermann was most likely a patsy, set up by others, and he'll probably be found "suicided" by pneumatic nail gun (with high capacity nail magazine), with a couple of well-placed nail wounds to the forehead, abdomen, scrotum & back of the skull, shortly.

The people who ordered this are above the law, owning the authorities.

Hitachi number one.

Paselodes are fired off Butane cartridges. You dont need a compressor, but the rate is very slow.

Some smaller trim guns can be run off a small dive tank.

he'll probably be found "suicided" 

That was quick - something is rotten in Liechtenstein

  "The suspect, Juergen Hermann, fled the scene in a Smart car with Liechtenstein license plates, according to police. The authorities later said Hermann appears to have committed suicide after they found the vehicle in Ruggell, 25 kilometers (16 miles) north of Balzers, with his passport and a confession.

Service dogs were able to track the suspect to the banks of the Rhine,” police said in a statement. “Clothing belonging to the suspect was found there. Because of the circumstances and the evidence, suicide has to be assumed."

The use of a small, cheap "Smart" car (manufactured by Daimler AG) by the alleged assassin most likely either was born of some practical utility (had it been a Bentley or S Klasse, it would have complicated matters) and/or carried some symbolic meaning.
