Hedge Fund Managers’ Compensation Up 8% in 2014

November 9, 2014 Debbie Jacobs Hedge Fund News

According to a survey by New York-based Glocap Search LLC, money manager at hedge-fund companies that manage over $4 billion earned about $2.4 million so far this year. That number reflects an 8 percent increase over last year’s earnings.

Glocap, an executive-search firm, added that compensation for senior traders and analysts at big companies with average industry performance climbed about 5 percent. That rise was partly fueled by competition from private-equity firms and banks. Analysts took home about $372,000 in salary and bonuses, according to the survey.

“Hedge-fund bonus pools continue to grow in 2014, inflated by management fee income, even if the performance contributions are more variable,” Anthony Keizner, the head of Glocap’s hedge fund practice, said.

Data provider Hedge Fund Research said that the amount of money invested in the global hedge-fund industry rose to $2.8 trillion in 2014. There was a corresponding rise of 2 percent in Bloomberg’s Global Aggregate Hedge Fund Index.
