Preparing for Brexit

We're changing the way we structure our organisation to prepare for Brexit whilst backing the UK to succeed through Brexit and beyond

Barclays is backing the UK

As the country moves towards life outside of the EU, Barclays is working to ensure that customers and businesses are well-equipped to rise up and meet both the challenges and opportunities presented to the UK by Brexit.

Barclays is working to play our part and it’s in our interest to do so. After all, 1 in 2 UK adults has a banking relationship with Barclays, and we bank over one million small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).
In additional to providing local banking services, our Corporate and Investment bank is also working to equip our corporate customers with the insights, support and solutions needed to grow, thrive, and connect with international opportunities.

Because when the societies where we operate succeed, Barclays succeeds.

Looking ahead, Barclays is committed to backing the UK by helping people, local businesses, and larger corporates to succeed in these uncertain times.



Barclays' response to Brexit

As a leading British universal bank, we operate through two principal business divisions: Barclays UK and Barclays International. Our European operations are integral to the strategic ambitions of Barclays International, which is comprised of our top tier Corporate and Investment Bank, our Global Barclaycard business and our Private Bank.

For some time now, we have been expanding our existing subsidiary Barclays Bank Ireland PLC (BBI) in order to continue providing products and services to our clients following the UK’s departure from the European Union.

We have been engaging with clients who are affected by these changes and this page provides more information for those clients (predominantly European clients – excluding the UK - of our Corporate Bank, Investment Bank, and Private Bank businesses).
