Antony Jenkins: Barclays appoint new chief executive

Help

Barclays has appointed Antony Jenkins to be its new chief executive.

The appointment follows the resignation of former chief executive Bob Diamond in the wake of the Libor interest rate-fixing scandal.

Mr Jenkins currently runs Barclays Retail and Business Banking and has been a member of the group's executive committee since 2009.

The announcement comes a day after Barclays said the Serious Fraud Office was investigating the bank.

The BBC's Hugh Pym said Mr Jenkins will have a "bulging in-tray" as he takes on his new role.
