Goldman Managing Director Found Dead In Apparent Kite Surfing Accident (ZeroHedge, July 21, 2014):

Police are still investigating the tragic death of 39-year-old Goldman Sachs Managing Director Nicholas Valtz this weekend. As Bloomberg reports, Valtz, a “novice kiteboarder,” was found dead yesterday by family members who went searching for him after he didn’t return from a kiteboarding outing. While there is no accusation of suicide in this case, it sadly brings the number of young financial services executives deaths to 16 this year.

As Bloomberg reports,

Nicholas Valtz, a managing director in cross-asset sales at Goldman Sachs in New York, was found in Napeague Harbor off the coast of Long Island, according to the East Hampton police. Valtz, 39, was a “novice kiteboarder” and was found floating in the water secured to his kite, police said in a statement released yesterday. Other kite gear was found in a grassy area of the harbor, police said.

Valtz, who joined Goldman Sachs in 2000, was promoted to managing director in 2010. His wife, Sashi Valtz, also works at Goldman Sachs as head of global third-party research sales, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Police are still investigating the death, according to the statement.

In March 2008, Valtz shaved his head to raise money for childhood cancer research, according to the website for St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Valtz enjoyed technology products and fast cars, according to the website for his brother-in-law’s 2012 wedding in which he was a groomsman.

  1. Tragic? Death of another greedy gut? Plenty more to take his place………
    I have no sympathy. All the money has been sucked out of this economy thanks to guys like him……they have ruined the lives of millions. Tragic? We need a lot more gone……I don’t care how.

  2. Another article from Enenews.com……….a professor weighs in. None of them admit the real truth, the dying Pacific ocean, and how badly it is affecting the entire west coast. Our entire world is being destroyed, and not one word is being spoken about it. Soon, the entire west coast will be unlivable, no plans or anything being put into effect to deal with it. The ones with real estate will find out it has no value, it is too radioactive for human life, or crops.

    Moving east may help for a while, but there is no stop to this disaster, it has been ongoing for 3.4 years, and nobody knows how to stop it…..or if they do, they have no intention of doing so. It is genocide, and in the America of my youth (a very long time ago), Japan would be facing charges in the world court.
    Here is the link. If you published it, I missed it, they say it was translated yesterday.
    Thank you so much for all you do. You are a ray of hope in a dark world, I think the world of you, and of your work.
    Best wishes always,
