About Barclays (Asia Pacific)

Global reach

Barclays Capital is the investment banking arm of Barclays PLC, a global bank with more than £1.5 trillion of assets on its balance sheet and 49 million customers worldwide. Barclays has two business clusters: global retail banking, and corporate and investment banking and wealth management. The latter comprises Barclays Commercial Bank, Barclays Wealth and Barclays Capital.

Globally, Barclays Capital has offices in 33 countries and over 20,000 employees -- a number which has increased since the acquisition of Lehman Brothers' North American investment banking and capital markets divisions, just one day after the U.S. firm filed for bankruptcy. In Asia Pacific, Barclays Capital employs more than 4,000, and that's also been increasing -- the headcount has grown over 50 percent in the last several years. With regional hubs located in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, Barclays Capital provides large corporations, government and institutional clients with a full spectrum of solutions to their strategic advisory, financing and risk management needs. The firm offers services to both issuer and investor clients, and its product suite includes commodities, emerging markets, equities, fixed income, foreign exchange, prime services, strategic portfolio and liquidity management and treasury.

Though its investment banking roots began in the 1980s, Barclays Capital was officially created in 1997 to provide financing and risk management solutions to corporate, government and institutional clients around the world. Although it's younger than many of its peers, Barclays Capital, thanks to its relationship with its parent firm, has grown at an astonishing rate and today is one of the world's leading investment banks.
