Barclays Q3 2015 results announcement
Commenting on the results, John McFarlane, chairman of Barclays PLC, said:
“Today’s results show another quarter of progress in our core businesses alongside the early effects of some of the changes that we are making.
We are pleased that Jes Staley will join us on 1 December as group chief executive officer, earlier than expected, and we are in the final stage of appointing a senior independent director and deputy chairman to replace Sir Mike Rake on his retirement from the board in the near future.
As we align Barclays around our three priorities – focus on core (segments and markets), generating shareholder value, and instilling a high performance culture with strong ethical values – we now have a forward agenda that has been discussed and agreed with Jes.
We will update the market on our plans for structural reform after we have agreed them with the regulator.
Now that we have a new CEO in place, we will provide further updates on future direction at the full year results.”
