Jerry del Missier's statement on his resignation

Barclays chief operating officer Jerry del Missier said in statement:

"My 15 years at Barclays have been a time of great accomplishment, both for me personally and for the bank.

I am grateful for the opportunities that were provided to me and proud of what we achieved. We built one of the premier global investment banks from scratch – something that we are all very proud of.

The firm is as strong today as it ever has been and is incredibly well placed to succeed within the post financial reform competitive landscape.
