Melius apud bonos quam apud fortunatos beneficia collocantur

Hello!!
"Melius apud bonos quam apud fortunatos beneficia collocantur."
Is melius nominative or is beneficia the actual subject here?
If beneficia is the subject, then melius would be somekind of adverb?
"The benefits are better put between on the good men than on the lucky men. "
