    Managing This ETF Is Like Solving a $55 Billion Rubik’s Cube

    When your underlying index is filled with thousands of fixed-income securities, tracking it isn’t exactly a simple task. The crux of the problem: It’s essentially impossible to own every note and bond in the benchmark. If you therefore use a selection of its constituents to replicate the benchmark, you have to continually tweak the characteristics of your optimized portfolio to home in on the performance of the underlying index.

    [$$] U.K. Court Dismisses Charges Against Barclays Over Qatari Capital Raise

    Barclays PLC said a British court dismissed charges brought against the bank over its emergency fundraising from Middle Eastern investors during the financial crisis. The decision is a major setback for the U.K.’s Serious Fraud Office, which had spent five years probing how Barclays wooed Qatari investors to prop up the bank during the 2008 crisis. The SFO last summer charged the bank with several counts, accusing it of lending $3 billion to Qatar to effectively fund its own bailout. The SFO also probed hundreds of millions of dollars of “advisory services” that were paid by Barclays to Qatari investors. The payment wasn’t initially disclosed after the capital was raised.

    Exclusive: Barclays activist urges trading shutdown at investment bank: sources

    Activist investor Edward Bramson is calling on Barclays (BARC.L) to end the bulk of trading activities at its investment bank, in a radical plan to cut costs and boost returns at the British lender, three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Investors briefed by the New York-based financier, who took a surprise 5 percent stake in Barclays in February, said Bramson wanted it to axe all parts of its investment banking operation that did not directly serve corporate clients. The plan would see Barclays keep its money-spinning M&A advisory business and the equity and debt capital markets teams responsible for leading high-value initial public offerings and bond sales, but cull its cash equities, currency and fixed income trading desks, the sources said.
