    Compensation

    Liked what I saw here until I looked at comp. Couldn't even believe that I was seeing correctly. Management not leaving much on the table for shareholders.

    • The comp is certainly something to watch. One caveat about comp this quarter is that they changed their Carry Plans (incentive comp) from cash-payout to equity with vesting for many of the senior PE guys and they restructured James Zelter's comp plan (head of Credit). In addition, they said that the comp ratio was high for the Q and that it would normalize. Your points are good though, these guys are definitely going to get theirs yet they should be given credit for building a promising business. I really believe they will be at 300bn in AUM in a few years and will get this stock up to the mid 40s. Thanks for the intelligent post.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • They left enough on the table to pay this shareholder $4.25/share since last August so I'm not complaining. In my opinion the management is earning every dime they are paying themselves. As a matter of fact, I took advantage of the current weakness in PPS to add to my holdings.

    • they never do. I followed BX for yrs and in bad times and good, the partners did well, not so much the shareholders. It took BX 6 yrs to get back to their IPO price.
