James Levin, 'Exec MD' At Och-Ziff Earns $119M In 2013

And you think Jamie Dimon and the other bank CEOs make a lot? Well I guess they do, but its nothing compared to the compensation which James Levin of Och Ziff ( OZM) is getting. Greg Zuckerman of the WSJ who made this discovery notes:

In 2012, James Levin, a then 30-year old trader at Och-Ziff Capital Management LLC, turned heads with a bet of more than $7.5 billion on "structured credit" debt investments, or about a quarter of the money the firm managed when the investments were made.

So what does James Levin do? Mr. Levin, 31, “who goes by Jimmy” according to Zuckerman now carries the titles of head of global credit and an executive managing director at Och-Ziff.
