Barclays Bank

Categories: Commerce

The bank's origins go back to the goldsmith bankers John Freame and Thomas Gould. James Barclay joined the business in 1736. After various name permutations, it became Barclay and Co. in 1896. As of 2010 it was the world's tenth largest banking and financial services group. Barclays were one of the founding bankers for the creation of the Bankers Clearing House.
