Money management professionals can expect to see anywhere between no change and a 5% jump from last year's bonus payouts, said projections from compensation consultant Johnson Associates.
This is down from the projected 5% to 10% jump expected in 2014 from the year before. The actual 2014 increase was about 10%, according to a report in May from Johnson Associates.
Incentive compensation for asset management is again projected to increase, albeit modestly. A mix of business, market activity and ongoing uncertainty in world markets continues to be key 2015 incentive drivers, the report said.
Incentive payouts for professionals in private equity are expected to rise anywhere from 10% to 15%, while professionals in the hedge fund industry can expect anywhere between no increase and an increase of 5% from last year's bonus.
The projections are based on second-quarter trends in the financial services industry.
