LONDON – Barclays’ long-running Chief Executive Jes Staley has said he plans to be in the job “a couple more years”, after the bank reported a near-quadrupling of half-year profits on Wednesday.

Staley told reporters “the job is good”, adding he would at some point look at succession plans.

Barclays in recent weeks has reshuffled the leadership in its investment banking division.

The lender has begun sounding out potential successors for Staley, according to media reports last year.
