Underlying profit before tax fell 10.5% to £1.5bn in the first quarter, as total income fell slightly to £5.3bn and bad loans increased substantially year-on-year. The poor performance was driven by the investment bank. The group has said that it may cut costs further if challenging condition continue. The shares fell 1.2% in early trading. Our view The years Barclays spent trying to get back into shape finally look set to pay dividends (6.5p in 2018). The new Barclays is a slimmer, if not yet fitter, beast - albeit one with aspirations of transatlantic grandeur. The UK business contains the bits we all recognise as Barclays: a High Street bank serving 22m retail customers, and almost a million smaller businesses, with current accounts, loans, cards and mortgages, plus wealth management. Barclays Corporate & International includes the business banking operations serving larger enterprises, a City and Wall Street investment bank, international card operations and payments. But the bank's not yet the finished article. Income growth is proving a struggle and there seems to be a new "exceptional" charge every quarter, pushing up total operating costs. The investment bank is at the heart of a growing row as well, with activist investor Edward Bramson arguing the division is uncompetitive and should be shrunk. Recent poor performance in the division isn't a great surprise, international rivals had flagged tough conditions across the market. But while Barclays is keen to point to a growing share of global banking fees, today's numbers will do little to take the pressure off the board. The good news is that cost control looks to be improving substantially, helped by falling conduct costs. Management have made it clear they're willing to flex costs to achieve profitability targets if necessary. Barclays was always going to be a longer term project. If it can deliver the 10%+ return on equity it's targeting by 2020, and do that consistently, then this year's dividend hike, which would have the bank yielding 4.5% in 2019, might be the first of several. REGISTER FOR UPDATES ON BARCLAYS First Quarter Results Barclays UK saw net income fall 1% to £1.8bn, as pressure on mortgage pricing continued and a reduced risk appetite in the light of economic uncertainty dented performance in UK cards. As a result, net interest margins (the difference between what the bank charges on loans and pays on deposits) fell slightly to 3.18%. The UK business saw a 5% decline in bad loans, to £191m, as economic conditions remained benign and total risk in the portfolio reduced. Operating expenses in the division fell 1%, thanks to non-recurrence of ring-fencing costs from last year and cost efficiencies. Total income in Barclays International fell 6% to £3.6bn, driven by an 11% fall in income from the investment bank. Reduced volatility hit results in the trading business, while less corporate activity meant global banking fees shrank (although Barclays' share of the global fee pool has increased since 2018). The global credit cards business saw income rise 6%, supported by currency moves and growth in US cards. Bad loans in the international business increased 163%, primarily due to a favourable assessment of underperforming loans in the US this time last year. Total operating expenses in the division fell 4%, driven by a reduction in performance related pay. Conduct and litigation costs across the group fell substantially year-on-year to just £61m this quarter. Excluding these costs, the group cost:income ratio improved marginally to 62%. Return on Equity was 9.6%, in line with the target of greater than 9% this year. Group CET1 Capital (an important measure of banking capitalisation) fell slightly quarter-on-quarter to 13%.

If the UK leaves the single market, Customs Union and European Economic Area, it will face significant challenges in terms of negotiating trade agreements superior to those it currently enjoys as a member of those institutions. A potential model for success is Canada, which has forged successful global relationships. Regardless of which model the UK chooses to pursue, it will need to undertake extensive and concerted work at the macroeconomic, political and corporate levels.

But Nigel Higgins has wasted no time trimming excess at the UK lender. Rumours that he’s shrunk the pool of drivers for senior execs are apparently unfounded. Though Higgins himself often takes the Tube, he hasn’t eschewed the car pool altogether. Former chief exec Antony Jenkins earned his St Antony moniker for his holier-than-thou rhetoric about bankers’ behaviour. Higgins is not seeking sainthood. Still, the 58-year-old is avoiding the costly quirks that characterised his predecessor’s start in the job. When John McFarlane, now 71, arrived as Barclays chairman, and was told by his feng shui consultant that he should only be driven around in a silver car, the whole Mercedes fleet was changed from blue to silver. Higgins’ more man-of-the-people approach has seen him shrink McFarlane’s corner office to a less grand size, carving out a meeting room alongside it. Removing the Scot’s private bathroom could be self-defeatingly costly. But it would be logical, quipped one former director. “Nigel is younger and probably doesn’t need it as much.” JOHN VAN KUFFELER: FEE EARNER The catchily-named Non-Standard Finance clearly didn’t pay much to brand consultants. But the business created four years ago by former Provident boss John van Kuffeler shelled out a fair whack — £10m in total — to all kinds of other advisers in its ultimately doomed effort to secure shareholder support for a takeover of rival the Provvy. The bulk of the fees seem to have gone to law firm Slaughter and May — no surprise there. A small chunk went to Deutsche Bank and financial advisory firm Ondra: without a deal, success fees weren’t payable. But NSF clearly felt that communicating the merits of the deal was what needed the most work. Alongside its in-house comms man Peter Reynolds, who cut his teeth at big betting outfits (Bwin and PartyGaming), two of the City’s biggest spin meisters were drafted in, too. The originally commissioned Maitland — including boss Neil Bennett — was buttressed by Finsbury’s Roland Rudd in a vain last-ditch effort to win support. A pretty non-standard approach. ALLEN & OVERY: NAMING RIGHTS Pay, strategy and leadership are all thorny issues in law firm mergers but the proposed tie-up of the magic circle’s Allen & Overy and US-based O’Melveny & Myers has hit a snag: no one can agree on what to call the new entity. Law firm names can get unfeasibly long: check out Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, or Finley, Kumble, Wagner, Underberg, Manley, Myerson & Casey, which collapsed in the late 80s. A recent Legal Week poll found a dull preference for A&O, but O’Melveny won’t go for that. A&O&O&M is fun but may be too silly. So, an appeal to City Insider readers — can you dream up a name and thus seal the deal? GERRY GRIMSTONE: BACK TO WORK Well that didn’t last long. Gerry Grimstone, who over the past year has given up top boardroom seats at both Barclays and Standard Life Aberdeen, has decided that the quiet life is not for him. He’s joined Fenchurch Advisory, an M&A firm that specialises in financial services deals, as a senior adviser. Sir Gerry has some history with his new employer. In 2017, Fenchurch got a plum role advising Standard Life on its £4bn acquisition of Aberdeen Asset Management. The chairman of Standard Life at the time? None other than Sir Gerry.
