The price of success
From CBS Marketwatch.com
All that money flowing into Janus has produced predictable results. The firm will close three of its most popular mutual funds to new investors today. The funds are the $42 billion Worldwide fund, the $8 billion Olympus fund, and the $3 billion Global Life Sciences fund. Protecting performance was the reason given for the closures.

Terrana says ta-ta
From Morningstar
Star stock-picker Beth Terrana is leaving Fidelity effective June 1. Terrana managed more than $20 billion, including the Fidelity fund, Destiny II, and Advisor Growth & Income. She said she is leaving to pursue interests outside money management, and possibly outside the fund industry. The departure is another in a series at Fidelity. Recently, George Vanderheiden retired, Erin Sullivan left to join a hedge fund, and Brad Lewis announced plans to leave the firm. Fidelity has also lost a series of technology-fund managers during the past year.

Buying loyalty
From Investment News
After paying $65 million in merger-related costs, Charles Schwab will pay U.S. Trust employees a bundle to stay put. According to documents filed with the SEC, Schwab intends to pay $150 million in cash and stock to U.S. Trust's 1,900 employees as an incentive to remain after the two companies merge later this year. The richest pot goes to the four top U.S. Trust executives, each of whom will receive bonuses of $2.8 million, on top of stock options and annual target bonuses. The bonuses could nearly triple their salaries.
