Fortress Investment Group LLC paid its three top executives bonuses worth a combined $43.8 million last year as the company’s shares fell 31 percent, including reinvested dividends.

Co-Chairmen Peter Briger and Wesley Edens received $22.6 million and $12.7 million, respectively, under the firm’s principal compensation plan, the bulk of it paid out in cash and the remainder in restricted stock, according to a Friday proxy statement. Chief Executive Officer Randal Nardone’s bonus for the year was $8.5 million. It’s the largest bonuses for Edens and Nardone since the New York-based firm went public in 2007.

The firm, which oversaw $70.5 billion in fee-paying investor capital at the end of last year, disbanded its flagship macro hedge fund after almost two years of losses and a spate of redemptions since 2007 shrank its assets by more than three-quarters to $1.8 billion.

Fortress’s largest private equity fund, overseen by Edens, was producing a 7 percent annualized return as of the end of 2015, compared with 6.2 percent a year earlier and 4.1 percent at the end of 2013, according to the firm’s annual report. The fund managed $4.4 billion as of Dec. 31.

Briger’s main credit hedge fund, called Drawbridge Special Opportunities, generated a 5.8 percent return for 2015, compared with 10 percent the previous year and 19 percent in 2013. The pool had $4.3 billion in assets as of Dec. 31. Returns weren’t available for the most recent private equity-style credit fund he oversees, which started last year, because it’s too early in its investment period, according to the report.

Fortress generated $391 million in pretax distributable earnings last year, down 12 percent from 2014.

In addition to $200,000 salaries, Briger and Edens also received company-paid Internet security services in the amounts of $291,424 and $341,058. At least half of the cash portion of any bonus payments net of taxes must be invested in the company’s funds.

A Fortress spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a phone call seeking comment.
