CHICAGO & NEW YORK, (November 4, 2015) – Hedge fund compensation experienced mixed trends in 2015 as a challenging performance environment in 3Q15 offset industry-wide gains from 1H15, according to the 2016 Glocap Compensation Report, released today by Glocap and HFR. Volatile 3Q performance will likely contribute to lower bonuses for the most highly compensated, performance-sensitive roles including senior portfolio managers, traders and executives. Partially offsetting this trend, compensation and base salaries for mid- to lower-tiered employees, including analysts, operations and technology, increased in 2015, consistent with broader trends in U.S. employment.
