Barclays sits outside the leading 10 consultants on offers by worth internationally this year, according to information put together by Bloomberg, with Wall Street companies controling the top of the rankings. 

An agent for Barclays decreased to comment. Reuters reported information of the city center previously.    

On Wednesday, Barclays designated Jean-Francois “J.F.” Astier, a previous financial investment bank co-head, to run the worldwide financial-sponsors group. The bank just recently moved higher in investment-banking league tables for monetary sponsors, with the company now ranking 4th internationally based upon activity up until now this year, up from 6th for all of 2022.

The internal conference echoes Venkatakrishnan’s remarks at a conference Thursday that he prepares to include more M&A advisors.
