Life outside the cabinet is proving lucrative for Boris Johnson.

The former U.K. Foreign Secretary was paid more than 94,500 pounds ($121,000) by GoldenTree Asset Management, a New York-based hedge fund, for a two-hour speech earlier this month. Travel and accommodation were also provided, according to a parliamentary filing.
