Annual Report 2021

Strong economies need strong banks. This is true not only because finance is the lifeblood of economic prosperity, but also because the way banks facilitate that finance can have positive effects for society too.

C.S. Venkatakrishnan - Group Chief Executive Officer Review

A strong Q1 performance demonstrated Barclays' ability to deliver broad-based income growth across all operating businesses. Group income was up 10% to £6.5bn, alongside profit before tax of £2.2bn and a RoTE of 11.5%. Our performance includes the relevant costs1 relating to the over-issuance of securities in the US and customer remediation of a legacy loan portfolio. Our income growth was driven partly by Global Markets, which has been helping clients navigate ongoing market volatility caused by geopolitical and economic challenges including the devastating war in Ukraine, and by the impact of higher interest rates in the US and UK.

We remain focused on the impact higher prices are having on our customers and our small business and corporate clients, all of whom are facing far harder conditions this year as a result of inflation, supply chain issues and higher energy costs. We will support them through this difficult period wherever we can, and support the wider economy just as we did through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our diversified income streams, focus on costs and a Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio of 13.8% provide a strong platform to deliver our target of a greater than 10% RoTE for 2022. We remain focused on our three strategic priorities as the year progresses: delivering next-generation, digitised consumer financial services, producing sustainable growth in the Corporate and Investment Bank (CIB), and capturing opportunities as we transition to a low-carbon economy."
