Barclays to sell shares in Barclays Africa

After being one of the few western banks to establish a presence in sub-Saharan Africa, Barclays is planning a retreat.

It is preparing to sell some of its 62 per cent stake in Barclays Africa, one of the continent’s largest banks, employing about 44,000 people with 1,267 branches, as Jes Staley, Barclays’ new chief executive, refocuses on a narrower range of business, according to The Wall Street Journal.
