Survey: Hedge Fund Compensation Rises In 2014

Dec 30 2014 | 12:18pm ET


Compensation growth, including base salary and bonus (both fixed payout and discretionary), was largely a function of fund relative performance and firm size, with portfolio managers at top performing funds approaching eight-figure compensation levels.

Analysts at large hedge funds, managing greater than $4 billion and performing near the industry average, experienced a base salary increase of 6% and a bonus increase of approximately 5%, for an average compensation increase of 5.4%  to a total compensation of $372,000, according to the survey.

Portfolio managers and other senior investment professionals at large hedge funds saw less change in their typical $275,000 base salaries, although bonus increases ranged from 2% to 15%, topping the average increase from 2013. Overall, the average compensation for a PM of a large fund with performance near industry average increased by nearly 8% to $2.4 million.
