The parent company of Putnam Investments doesn’t say whether or not the CEO of the fifth-largest fund group in the United States, who got a $17 million bonus in 2001 and a $33 million bonus in 2000, will get one for 2002, Reuters reports.

Lawrence Lasser, president and chief executive of Boston-based Putnam, earned no bonus last year in a move he initiated to cut costs (see MFMN 4/16/01). But he earned $1 million in salary, another $1 million in restricted stocks and an additional $407,000 for such service as acting as a trustee of the Putnam funds in 2002, according to a proxy statement Putnam’s parent company, Marsh & McLennan, filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
