Marshall Wace Payouts Wilt In Fiscal 2009

Dec 9 2010 | 1:56am ET

Partners at Marshall Wace Asset Management earned just a fraction of the 2008 bonuses in 2009, the hedge fund disclosed in a regulatory filing.

The firm's members split just £45.5 million in the year ended February. Over the prior 18 month period—which included the year of 2008—the members split £261.4 million.

Last year's payout amounts to just over quarter of the previous bonus, pro-rated for a year.

Marshall Wace's filing did not say who at the firm earned what, indicating only that the best-paid member took home £34.3 million.
