A trusted partner in London

  • The Economist Group – at the height of the recession, the group decided to bid for the influential Washington publisher, Congressional Quarterly. Due to our longstanding relationship we were invited to join the acquisition team at an early stage and were able to provide a series of flexible financing options, leading to a successful bid. The group is now the leading provider of content to the US Congress
  • AEG Europe – a brand leader in world-class music and entertainment, with over 20 commercial interests across Europe, including the O2, AEG needed a financial partner who understood the complexity and diversity of their business. They chose Barclays to deliver everything from the provision of finance, trade facilities and cash management, to the introduction of contactless payment technology, and these services have enabled them to focus on growth
