Barclays has reported a pre-tax statutory loss of £47 million for the third quarter, against a £2.4 billion profit for the same period last year.
The bank's adjusted pretax profit in the three months to the end of September was revealed to be £1.73 billion, in line with analysts' forecasts and up from £1.34 billion a year ago, thanks to strong profits from investment banking.
But including a £700 million charge for mis-selling payment protection insurance would have left profits down 23% at £1.03 billion.
