UK Pimco execs, CEO got 30% pay cut in 2014
Pimco's U.K. directors had their pay slashed by 30% in 2014 in the wake of Bill Gross' departure last fall, reports the Financial Times.
Pimco has been bleeding assets since before Gross left for Janus Capital last September. Its London unit had a 11% decrease in assets under management last year, falling to £120.8 billion, after the flagship Total Return bond fund failed to produce strong returns and the firm lost both its CEO and founder within a year.
In 2014, Pimco's nine U.K. directors were paid £36.5 million, compared to £48.6 million total in 2013. The highest paid director saw his pay cut 57% from £22 million to £15.7 million. Pimco's U.K. directors include William Benz, managing director in London, and Douglas Hodge, CEO since Mohamed El-Erian's sudden resignation in early 2014.
