    HBOS whistleblower says Barclays case tells others 'don't bother'

    British whistleblowers will be less likely to speak out, now that the chief executive of Barclays has been allowed to keep his job after trying to unmask an informant at the bank, another whistleblower and the head of a support group said on Friday. Staley had twice tried to find out who wrote a letter raising "concerns of a personal nature" about an unnamed senior employee at Barclays.

    Fine for Barclays CEO likely less than $2 million: Sources

    Barclays CEO Jes Staley will likely not pay more than $2 million in total fines to UK regulators for his attempt to discover the identity of a whistleblower, according to people familiar with the situation. The Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority have concluded that Staley's efforts to find out who wrote an anonymous letter represented a breach of individual conduct, Barclays said Friday. Staley must pay a financial penalty, while the company itself received no punishment, according to a release.

    Barclays chief Staley survives whistleblowing inquiry with fines

    Barclays said Jes Staley will be fined by British regulators for attempting to unmask a whistleblower, but will be able to keep his job as the bank's chief executive. The country's banking watchdogs concluded Staley's attempt to find out who wrote a letter raising "concerns of a personal nature" about an unnamed senior employee represented a breach of individual conduct, Barclays said on Friday. Staley's case is the first big test of Britain's "senior managers regime" (SMR), aimed at making top banking officials personally accountable for their actions after few were punished for their roles in bank collapses during the financial crisis.

    Barclays board may be a step too far for activist Bramson

    Major Barclays (BARC.L) shareholders will baulk at any bid by activist Edward Bramson to gain a seat on the bank's board, despite giving their cautious backing to the biggest bet of his career. Bramson's 5 percent shareholding, revealed last month, was broadly cheered by investors as pressure mounts on Barclays to fix low returns at its investment bank, the lender's biggest profit engine before the financial crisis. Bramson, together with Stephen Welker, co-managing director of investment vehicle Sherborne Investors, has pursued 10 activist campaigns since 2003, six of which involved direct engagement with the companies' boards, according to filings.

    Barclays: Can whistleblowers be confident after City watchdogs issue warning notice to CEO Staley ahead of possible fine?

    The scandal over Barclays boss Jes Staley’s attempt to out a whistleblower is reaching its endgame, and it’s looking good for him and the bank he runs. Barclays this morning revealed that Mr Staley has been issued with a warning notice from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). The information is therefore relevant given Staley is due for re-election, and with activist investor Ed Bramson breathing down the bank’s neck there are sound tactical reasons for getting the story out.

    Barclays’ breathes sigh of relief after FCA whistleblowing verdict

    Barclays’ chief executive Jes Staley is facing a multi-million-pound penalty after watchdogs found he failed to act with “due skill, care and diligence” in the handling of a whistleblowing inquiry. Crucially, he was cleared of acting with a lack of integrity, which means he can continue at the helm with the “unanimous” backing of his board as he fends off a break-up bid by corporate raider Edward Bramson. Barclays has yet to speak to Bramson, but is likely to fiercely oppose the idea.

    Barclays CEO Survives Whistle-Blowing Probe With Only a Fine

    Barclays Plc Chief Executive Officer Jes Staley survived a year-long regulatory probe into his attempts to unmask a whistle-blower, escaping with a fine instead of losing his job. While the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority will impose a financial penalty on Staley for failing to behave “with due skill, care and diligence” in the scandal, they stopped short of the more serious charge that “he acted with a lack of integrity or that he lacks fitness and propriety to continue to perform his role as group chief executive officer,” the bank said in a statement on Friday. Staley faces a penalty of between 1 million ($1.4 million) and 2 million pounds, including a bonus clawback from Barclays, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

    Edward Bramson’s plans are bad for Britain, bad for Europe and bad for Barclays. From his Wall Street eyrie, he looks across the Atlantic and declares Barclays should ditch its Markets trading business to focus on High Street banking and advisory work, the side of investment banking where expensively suited public schoolboys guide companies through takeovers. By shedding the investment bank, he argues, Barclays would no longer have to keep billions of pounds aside to cover potential losses.

The New York tycoon has sounded out investors about taking aim at Barclays’ Markets division, the capital intensive unit focused on trading bonds, commodities and currencies by either selling or running down the division over the next two to three years, according to three sources. Bramson, who has built a 5% stake through Sherborne, has mentioned Citadel as a possible buyer of the division’s assets, according to one source.
