MD Salary at boutique MM with 5-8 deals a year and only a total of 15 employees. (4 MDs in total)

Title says it all, saw a recent post about salaries at "no-name boutiques" and was curious about what MD salary would be at a well-known sector-specific boutique in the MM range. The avg fee is 1m - 3m per deal and size of deal usually ranges from 300m - 800m

Based on the most helpful WSO content, the salary of a Managing Director (MD) can vary greatly depending on the performance and seniority of the individual. However, the context doesn't provide specific information about the salary of an MD at a boutique MM with 5-8 deals a year and only a total of 15 employees.

Remember, compensation can be influenced by many factors such as the number of deals closed, the size of the deals, the performance of the individual, and the overall performance of the firm. It's also important to note that a significant portion of an MD's compensation often comes in the form of bonuses and shares, which can fluctuate based on the firm's performance and market conditions.

I'm sorry, but it looks like this may be out of my ability to answer... maybe some of the links below might help?

They're probably getting a fee cut instead of a big salary / bonus and that obviously bounces around a ton year to year. For context these guys are making between $500K - $1.5M in fees on their average deals probably, and are likely taking ~20% to 30% in fees on each deal. So call it $100K - $450K per deal. 

 

I'd note the avg fee is 1m-3m as deals are generally 300m - 800m in value, I'll edit post.
