Panel A lists all firms that produced more than five individuals who went on to manage hedge funds in the sample period 1994 to 2009.

That still doesn’t change the fact that they underpaid these future hedge fund managers. Deutsche Bank and Merrill Lynch is at the top of our list. Here is the rest:
