Profit Per Partner?
« on: June 28, 2009, 07:09:14 PM »
Does this stat mean the amount of firm profit attributable to each partner on average or what each partner takes home at the end of the year on average?

I think PPP is total firm profit / number of equity partners.

Yeah it's just total profits divided by number of partners.

The difference between the highest and lowest paid partner can be as much as 1:9- so it's not all that useful for determining how much a given partner makes.

Exactly!
