Greenhill CEO Says ‘You’d Have to Waterboard Me’ to Cut Payout

Greenhill & Co. Chief Executive Officer Scott Bok said “you’d have to waterboard me” to persuade him to cut the firm’s quarterly dividend.

Bok, 52, made the comment today during a presentation by the New York-based advisory firm at an investor conference sponsored by CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets. Greenhill’s quarterly payout has held steady at 45 cents since 2008.
