Whatever turns out to be the case in this instance" you should #now that any re:uest for information that may be directed to Wellington would have no direct impact on shareholder assets or the value of Fanguard mutual funds managed by Wellington. 0he performance of the funds is driven largely by the financial mar#ets and the specific holdings of particular funds.

(nvestment firm2s secrets sli& out 9ebruary $$" &.$$ ,f it hadn>t been for a strange turn of events at the state>s highest court" sensitive details about the vast wealth of secretive 8oston investment firm Wellington Management ;o. might have never seen the light of day. 8ut for about three hours yesterday" information about the Wellington partnership was posted online" cited in a court decision in a long!running divorce case between well!#nown hedge fund manager /icholas ?dams and his wife" /ancy. 0he lengthy written decision from the *upreme =udicial ;ourt incorporated many well!guarded financial facts about the company that manages more than C-.. billion. ?mong the revelations: One estimate put the business>s worth at C% billion. ?nd some of the $.. or so partnerships in the firm may be worth more than C'. million each. 0hen" without explanation" the high court withdrew its decision and pulled the document off the ,nternet. 0he court doc#et indicates the case files have been impounded. 6owever" a half!hour video of lawyers ?lan +ershowitz and =oel 7ozol arguing for their respective clients before the *=; remained available online" providing still more bits of information. +ershowitz was representing /icholas ?dams in his appeal of a probate court assessment that he said valued /ancy ?dams>s share of the marital estate at about C$&. million. Matthew 7ozol" a lawyer for the money manager>s wife" called that one of the largest divorce court decisions ever in Massachusetts. 0he C% billion estimate of Wellington>s worth came from an expert wor#ing for /ancy ?dams. 8y comparison" privately owned giant 9idelity ,nvestments is thought to be worth between C5. billion and CK. billion. Wellington has grown dramatically while trying not to draw attention to itself over the past decade" often managing billions for better!#nown companies such as Fanguard 2roup and 0he 6artford 9inancial *ervices 2roup. Overall" it acts as financial adviser to $"%.. institutional clients in B. countries. ,nvestment firms tend to shun the limelight" but Wellington is in an entirely different league. 0he old!line firm" founded in $%&'" doesn>t hold public events and never comments for stories about its business. ,t doesn>t publish annual reports or disclose partnership profits. (redictably" a spo#eswoman declined to comment about the information on Wellington contained in the ?dams court case. 0he ?dams court papers go into detail about how Wellington pays its partners" both while at the firm and for as long as a decade after they leave. *ome compensation is based on measurable investment performance" but millions in pay also depends on the subjective views of a three!member panel of partners. ,t decides how big a slice of Wellington>s profit each partner has earned in a given year. ?n independent special master appointed by the probate court" retired judge 1udolph 7ass" had appraised /icholas ?dams>s partnership interest at C'$ million" although the court said it wanted that figure recalculated.

?dams" who managed more than C& billion in hedge funds and other investments for Wellington at the time of the divorce filing" earned more than CK- million in &..'" based on his investment results from the previous year. ,t appeared to be the most ?dams had earned since becoming a Wellington partner in $%%5. 3i#e other partners" a relatively small amount of ?dams>s total compensation is from his base pay just C5.."... in &..'. 6edge fund mangers also earn a percentage of the fees Wellington charges investors. ,n his case" that incentive compensation ranged from CKB"&-& in &... to more than C&. million in &..'. 0his compensation can vary a great deal from year to year because it is based on the actual performance of Wellington investments. 6edge fund managers can earn millions or nothing in a given year. ?dams also earned more money as a partner in two ways" based on the firm>s overall profits. 0he most important thing to #now is that each partner is allocated a share of those profits based on a series of intangibles: +id the partner offer the firm valuable adviceL ,s he or she a big star who attracts business to WellingtonL ?dams received an average of about 5 percent of Wellington profits during his years as a partner" according to the high court>s withdrawn decision. ,n $%%5" his share amounted to C$5B"K.5. 8y &..' it had grown to more than C&- million. 0he millions made by Wellington>s partners certainly sound shoc#ing" but they amount to relatively small change compared to the billions earned by some of the hedge fund industry>s highest fliers. Wellington>s compensation almost seems conservative by the gaudiest Wall *treet standards. /onetheless those numbers are the last facts Wellington would ever want you to learn.
