Barclays Capital PLC Key Developments

Barclays Capital to Axe 7,000 Staff over the Next Three Years

Barclays is to cut more than a quarter of staff at its investment banking arm as part of a radical overhaul of the lender that will also lead to the closure and disposal of its entire European retail business. About 7,000 staff employed by the old Barclays Capital division will lose their jobs over the next three years, out of a current workforce of just more than 26,000, as the bank shrinks its trading operations and focuses more on underwriting new sales of bonds and shares. Overall, Barclays said it had increased its redundancy target for this year to 14,000, an increase of 2,000, with thousands more jobs expected to go in businesses outside the investment bank in an effort to cut costs. In total, the restructuring will mean 19,000 job losses by 2016.
