The Sunday Times: $10m bonus for Goldman co-head
Michael Sherwood, co-head of Goldman Sachs in London, has been awarded a bonus of $10m (£6.2m) for his work in 2011. The share award is larger than the $7m bonus for Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein. The investment bank's share price fell 44 per cent last year. Mr Sherwood's bonus is 34 per cent lower than last year. Mr Sherwood also takes a larger proportion of his bonus in shares than other employees because of the remuneration rules of the Financial Services Authority.
