Can't say I disagree. The remuneration process is flawed.

We won't hear anything from him until after the q3 results on 24th oct. If they are lacklustre it is unlikely he will continue to be quiet.

At a push, the reference to Barclays chairman, feng shui fan John McFarlane, could be read as spiky. But having a chat about the recruitment process is not the same as demanding that McFarlane leaves before he wants to go. The other items of Sherborne’s list were general. There wasn’t a specific demand in sight. The game will only start in earnest when Bramson sets out his views on Barclays’ investment bank. Does he want it to be sold, merged, demerged, or slimmed down to fund a return of capital to shareholders? All were regarded as possible demands in March.

Sherborne’s antecedents date to the mid 1970’s when some of our current principals became involved in private equity. The distinctive characteristic of our approach was and remains turnaround investing, which involves improving the underlying business operations of companies in which we invest. Sherborne Investors now concentrates its turnaround investing activities as a minority shareholder in publicly quoted companies. We seek to enhance value in our portfolio companies by offering our participation on the board, rather than through majority ownership and control of the company. We invest in companies which we believe have the potential to increase their profits substantially but which have underperformed for an extended period of time. Our firm’s approach provides current shareholders with a new alternative. In the absence of an operational turnaround, shareholders in underperforming companies can choose to continue with the existing situation, sell their shares at a loss, or hope a buyer for the whole company may emerge offering a modest premium to a depressed share price.

This Quiet Activist Investor Has Averaged 19 Percent Returns for More Than a Decade

What does Bramson want? A higher share price, obviously. How does he think it should be achieved? His Sherborne fund is in its usual non-communicative mode at this early stage, so it’s impossible to know. But the investment bank could be on the radar. The division consumes two-thirds of Barclays’ capital but has produced sub-par returns for years. Business Today: sign up for a morning shot of financial news Read more Demerge it? Sell it? Give it less capital? All those ideas would put Bramson on a collision course with a Staley regime that is committed to investment banking and thinks its strategy will come good within two years. The Staley philosophy says you can’t be half-hearted. His predecessor, Anthony Jenkins, tried running a pared-down investment bank and the experiment was deemed a flop. Bramson’s view could be fascinating. Does he, for example, think Barclays is better at generating bonuses for its top bankers than it is at making money for the shareholders? If so, bring on the debate – Staley’s “trust me” approach on investment banking has had a ridiculously easy ride so far.

Bramson has bought stakes in a series of British companies in the past 15 years and has reaped returns averaging 22.8% a year. He typically does so by buying a sizeable stake, demanding a seat on the board and then pushing for cost cuts, payouts to shareholders and other changes that boost returns.

Bramson is not just any shareholder. He is an example of the aggressive activist investors that are buying stakes in UK companies with the aim of shaking things up and extracting returns. Barclays welcomed Bramson to its shareholder list but the greeting was no doubt made through gritted teeth. Bramson’s record of dogged agitation suggests Barclays’ bosses could now be in for a hard time.

The most likely target for Bramson’s shake-up is Barclays’ investment bank, whose status has swung from prized possession to expensive underperformer.

Bramson’s style is to sit tight and work out his demands.

I doubt it . He would have taken a loss, which would not be positive for his company, investors or reputation, for future investments.
