Falcon's annual salary will be US$800,000. He will have a maximum bonus opportunity of 100% of salary and will receive 10% of the Jackson bonus pool with 40% of any bonus deferred. Long-term incentive awards will be 400% of salary. Despite that, the Pru has still offered to support his relocation from Hong Kong to the US

Any unvested awards that Falcon forfeits as a consequence of joining Prudential will be replaced on a like-for-like basis
