Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s Business Partner Dies, Apparently in Suicide

By MAĻA de la BAUME and ISABEL KERSHNEROCT. 24, 2014

PARIS — Thierry Leyne, a French-Israeli banker and partner of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the disgraced former chief of the International Monetary Fund, was found dead on Thursday after apparently taking his own life in Tel Aviv.

Mr. Leyne, 48, jumped off the 23rd floor of one of the Yoo towers, a prestigious residential complex, according to Israeli officials.

The two men met several years ago and, in October 2013, founded Leyne Strauss-Kahn & Partners in an effort to capitalize on the former fund chief’s experience and expertise. The company offers investment banking advice and services.


After training as a civil engineer, Mr. Leyne made a career in private banking, management and investment. In 1994, he founded Assya Capital, a trading company that was listed on the Euronext Free Market in 2001.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn became an investment banker after his career was buffeted by a series of sex scandals. He has helped the government of South Sudan set up a bank, and he advised the Serbian government on economic issues. He also sits on the board of two big Russian financial institutions.

Maļa de la Baume reported from Paris, and Isabel Kershner from Jerusalem.
