Billionaire fund manager Sir Chris Hohn
Billionaire hedge fund manager Sir Chris Hohn has taken a 20 per cent pay cut – to £215 million.
He pocketed the dividend after profits at The Children’s Investment Fund surged 30 per cent to £278 million in the year to the end of February.
Hohn paid himself a dividend of £270 million the previous year.
The 52-year-old is one of Britain’s most prolific philanthropists and was knighted four years ago.
He was at the centre of a boardroom battle at the London Stock Exchange in 2017, leading a revolt against chairman Donald Brydon after chief executive Xavier Rolet was ousted.
