Barclays is part of the Barclays Group who have set aside £4.13bn for their customers.
Barclays traces its history back to 1690, when John Freame and Thomas Gould started trading as goldsmith bankers in London’s Lombard Street. James Barclay became a partner in 1736 following John Freame’s retirement.
Barclay & Company Limited was formed from a merger of 20 banks in 1896. The new bank had 182 branches, 806 employees, and deposits worth £26m.
Barclays has driven transport and trade, funding of Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1819, financing two of the world’s fastest passenger ships in 1900, investing in William Morris in 1920 (helping him become the biggest UK car manufacturer) and financing the Hong Kong underground in 1980.
They have also been keen to lead technological developments launching the UK’s first credit card (Barclaycard) in 1966, the world’s first cash machine in 1967, the UK’s first debit card in 1987, the UK’s first contactless card in 2007 and “Pingit” in 2012.
Barclays has over 4,750 and 140,000 staff, although they plan to cut between 10,000 and 12,000 jobs this year.
£22bn has been set aside by the UK's big four banks so far
