Blackstone Group Inc. co-founder Steve Schwarzman and his top two executives collected a combined $802.6 million in compensation and dividends last year.

Schwarzman’s haul consisted of $452 million in dividends and around $53.5 million in carried interest, the New York-based private equity firm said Friday in a regulatory filing. The rest came in salary, equity awards and company-paid expenses for personal security. His total figure dropped 10% from the prior year because of smaller dividends.
