    [$$] Barclays Answers Critics With Investment-Banking Growth

    LONDON—Barclays PLC Chief Executive Jes Staley faced down investor pressure over its investment bank by boosting revenue at the unit in the first quarter, even as a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department pushed the British lender into an overall loss. Under pressure from a newly arrived activist investor, Mr. Staley said Thursday’s results were “a validation of the strategy that we laid out two years ago,” reiterating that the lender can thrive with a diversified business stretching from credit cards to equity derivatives. The bank said it made a net loss of £764 million ($1.06 billion) in the first quarter, compared with a profit of £190 million a year earlier, after it agreed to pay $2 billion to the Justice Department to settle a claim for selling toxic mortgage-backed securities before the financial crisis.

    Barclays defies critic Bramson as investment bank leads the charge

    Barclays moved to fend off a break-up bid by activist investor Edward Bramson on Thursday with its best results for four years, including a strong performance from the investment bank Bramson wants to ditch. Yesterday the investor upped his stake slightly to 5.41% as he agitates for change, telling investors that the investment bank eats up too much capital that could be given to shareholders. On Thursday Barclays said that the trading arm is beating peers, especially in foreign exchange and equity derivatives.

    Barclays boss Staley stronger than he looks in face of activist attack

    On the eve of Barclays results, the elephant in the room decided to trumpet. Activist investor Ed Bramson, who is advocating a shakeup, upped his stake in the bank that he has built up through his investment vehicle, Sherborne. It was only by a bit, from 5.16 per cent to 5.41 per cent, but people like him don’t have to do much to get the markets and media saying “ooh look at that” and Mr Bramson was thus being talked about as much as the bank’s first quarter results when they were released.

    Barclays confident can restore capital levels depleted by U.S. fine

    Barclays said rising profits from its investment bank will be enough to restore capital levels depleted by misconduct fines in Britain and the United States, as the British lender announced a characteristically mixed set of first-quarter earnings. The earnings came a week after Barclays announced Chief Executive Jes Staley would keep his job but face a fine following the results of a regulatory probe into his attempts to unmask a whistleblower. Staley told reporters he is "very comfortable" with the results of that investigation when asked if he would challenge the findings, suggested he could move swiftly to pay the fine and try to put the matter behind him.

    Barclays re-opens in Australia, two years after sharp pullback

    Barclays Plc (BARC.L) is to re-open in Australia just over two years since the UK-based bank surprised staff there by closing its operations as part of a region-wide retrenchment. The bank on Thursday said the new office, in Sydney, would offer capital markets and advisory services to local clients and would be run by Paul Early and Richard Satchwell, two long-time Barclays bankers. Early in 2016, the bank's Asian operations bore the brunt of global cuts, including 1,200 job losses, under the then new leadership of chief executive Jes Staley.

    Barclays first-quarter profit surprise marred by U.S. fines

    Improved income at its investment bank helped Barclays report a better than expected first quarter pretax profit of 1.7 billion pounds ($2.4 billion) on Thursday, although fines and legal costs from historic misconduct issues led to a statutory loss. Barclays took a 1.4 billion pound hit from its settlement with the U.S. Justice Department over the sale of toxic mortgage-backed securities in the run-up to the 2007 financial crisis. Barclays said it still intends to pay a dividend of 6.5 pence per share in 2018, despite those fines and costs eating into its capital reserves.
