Private-equity powerhouse Blackstone Group LP said Monday that its chief executive made $400 million in 2006 — almost double the combined compensation for the CEOs of Wall Street’s five biggest investment banks. Schwarzman, 60, will lead the New York-based firm to the highly anticipated initial public offering of its management company within the next few weeks.
