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.
