CEOs and CIOs bring home the most bacon in the small-to-mid-sized hedge fund space, according to Infovest21’s 2010 compensation survey.
For hedge fund managers with less than $1 billion in assets, total average compensation for CEOs and CIOs was in the $600,000+ range.
Not far behind—with compensation in the $400,000 to $499,999 range—were head traders, compliance directors, senior analysts, COOs and directors of sales and marketing.
Portfolio managers, CFOs and mid-level analysts got by with total compensation of $190,000 to $350,000, while client services and operations/mid-office personnel earned under $100,000.
Compared to 2009, says Infovest21 President Lois Peltz, everyone earned more, with the exception of CFOs and operations/mid-office trade support personnel, who saw their compensation reduced.
The results of this second compensation survey are based on data from 30 hedge fund management firms, all with assets under $1 billion. The average manager in the survey had $305 million in assets, 14.5 employees and was up 3.5% for the first half of 2010. A full 96% of the respondents were stand-alone organizations.
