Pusuit of Whistleblowers
In May 2018, the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority fined the CEO of Barclays, Jes Staley, £642,430 for trying to identify an anonymous whistlebower who in 2016 send a letter to the bank's board. The authorities also reported "limited gaps" in Barclays' whistleblowing policies and procedures. In December 2018, New York's Department of Financial Services fined Barclays Bank PLC and its New York branch $15 million for Staley's behaviour.
