last month's COO and CFO Forum staged by Private Equity International and Private Equity Manager in London, delegates were asked a series of questions relating to their level of seniority and compensation within their respective organizations. The votes, as shown below, produced some interesting outcomes. Among these, it transpired that COOs and CFOs are much more likely to be partners than investor relations pros or inhouse legal counsels, while nearly one-third boast total annual compensation in the €300,000 to €500,000 bracket ($381,000 to $635,000). It's far from an easy job, as any finance professional in private equity will tell you – but it seems that, in most cases at least, the effort is well rewarded. Source: Private Equity International
