Pandit to Get $80 Million ‘Drop in the Bucket’ Old Lane Cash

Citigroup Inc. Chief Executive Officer Vikram Pandit, who took a $1 salary after his bank received the most taxpayer assistance of any U.S. lender, is poised to collect $80 million from other payments and awards that may eventually total more than $200 million.

Pandit, 54, will get the $80 million from Citigroup’s purchase of his Old Lane Partners LP hedge fund tomorrow, according to regulatory filings. The deal brought him to the lender in July 2007. JPMorgan Chase & Co., which remained profitable through the financial crisis, has disclosed about $90 million in awards for CEO Jamie Dimon since 2007.
