    Barclays and Red Kite settle copper market dispute

    British bank Barclays and hedge fund Red Kite Group have settled a legal dispute in which the fund accused the bank of manipulating the copper market and causing it to lose money. "Legal proceedings between the Red Kite group as Claimants and Barclays Bank PLC as Defendant have been concluded on mutually acceptable terms," Barclays said in a statement on Thursday, without giving details of the settlement. Red Kite in 2017 sued Barclays for $850 million, alleging in court documents that the bank's proprietary traders were able to see the hedge fund's confidential trading positions on the London Metal Exchange (LME) that were being executed by another division of Barclays.

    Barclays and Red Kite Settle $850 Million Market Abuse Case

    Red Kite had previously said actions by Barclays traders cost it at least $850 million between 2010 and 2013. The lawsuit has been closely watched in the metals market and legal circles. Many were awaiting the outcome of a trial scheduled for 2020, which would have pitted the commodities hedge fund against a bank that has been rocked by claims of manipulative trading spanning interest rates, currencies and precious-metal markets.

    BNP Paribas could raise outside money for its first such fund, known as a direct-lending fund, as soon as this year, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. Discussions at Barclays are more preliminary, but any fund set up could offer a broad range of financing options, according to separate people. The banks are considering following the lead of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which decades ago set up a direct lending arm that has helped it win fees.

    London's FTSE 100 subdued, IWG lifts midcaps

    The blue-chip index ended a lacklustre session about flat, lagging its European peers, while the FTSE 250 held on to its six-month high with a 0.5 percent rise as a stronger pound also aided. The pound's gains followed upbeat comments from Britain's foreign minister Jeremy Hunt on talks between the government and the opposition Labour Party to find a consensus over Brexit.

    Activist investor Bramson launches major broadside at Barclays bosses

    The row between Barclays and Ed Bramson ramped up another notch on monday when the rebel investor attacked the make-up of the board and questioned the competence of incoming chairman Nigel Higgins. Bramson, a corporate raider who specialises in taking stakes in underperforming companies and agitating for change, is seeking a seat on the board as he pushes his plan for Barclays to ditch all or part of its investment bank. While the chances of him securing a seat are low — few investors have backed him — the continuing weakness of the Barclays share price is making him hard to ignore.

    Barclays activist Bramson renews call to join the board

    Activist Edward Bramson on Monday made a renewed plea for Barclays' investors to give him a seat on the bank's board, as the war of words between his Sherborne Investors fund and the lender's management ratchets up. Both camps have begun a back-and-forth courting of shareholders ahead of the bank's May 2 annual general meeting as Bramson attempts to muscle in on decision-making at the company and push through his proposal for a strategic overhaul of Barclays investment bank. After both issued statements last week laying out their case, New York-based Bramson again wrote to investors on Monday to say nothing Barclays had said had made him change his view about what needed to change at the bank.

    Barclays warns against 'disruptive' activist Bramson

    In response to a letter sent by Bramson's Sherborne investment vehicle to shareholders on April 8, Barclays said the activist investor would have "a disruptive and uncollaborative influence on the board". The British bank also questioned Bramson's banking experience, arguing that he does not have the right skills and he is not aligned with the wider shareholder base. The lender said Bramson's letter showed he had "a preconceived viewpoint and a poor understanding" of Barclays and its corporate and investment bank (CIB).

    Barclays Hits Back at Activist’s ‘Misleading’ Criticisms

    The British bank strongly opposes Bramson’s appointment to its board, according to a statement on Thursday. The activist’s vehicle Sherborne Investors, which set out its proposals on Monday, has been “selective and misleading” in describing the investment bank’s strategy, the lender said. Bramson, who has an investment of about 5.5 percent in Barclays, has said it could be forced to raise capital, sell lucrative businesses or cut dividends if it persists in prioritizing its investment bank.

    Barclays said on Thursday it opposed activist investor Edward Bramson's bid to be appointed to its board and urged shareholders to oppose the resolution at its annual general meeting on May 2. In response to a letter sent by Bramson's Sherborne investment vehicle to shareholders, Barclays said the activist investor would have "a disruptive and uncollaborative influence on the board". Chairman John McFarlane said shareholders needed to "appreciate how damaging this could be", adding he was well aware that returns from Barclays' investment banking business had been below required return levels.

    Barclays to restructure 450 jobs, employee union sees heavy layoffs

    British banking giant Barclays is restructuring around 450 jobs, it said on Tuesday, in a move employee union Unite said would lead to large numbers of redundancies across the UK midlands. The union said the lender had informed staff at its Coventry Westwood Park and Birmingham Snowhill sites that their jobs were at risk. Further job losses will impact other Barclays sites in locations including Canary Wharf in London, the union said.

    Activist Bramson renews vote plea to Barclays shareholders

    Activist Sherborne Investors on Monday wrote another letter to shareholders of Barclays seeking to drum up support for the election of its founder Edward Bramson to the board of the British bank. Bramson has so far failed in attempts to get the lender to scale back its investment banking activities, which he says have weighed on shareholder returns and run the risk of the bank needing to raise fresh capital. While Barclays has said it remains committed to its strategy, Chief Executive Jes Staley last month ousted the head of its investment banking division and instead took direct control of the unit, a move referenced in Sherborne's latest letter.
