African profits also slipped nine per cent to £272m.Meanwhile, UK banks are braced for a tougher limit on how much they can lend against a given capital buffer, as the Bank of England will today set out its plans for the leverage ratio.International regulations set the ratio – an unweighted backstop intended to stop banks over-stretching themselves – at three per cent, or 33-times leveraged.This is expected to be changed to at least four per cent – 25-times leveraged – with extra layers possible for the biggest banks. The Bank will also set out a timeline, which could give banks as much as five years to hit the ratio.Barclays’ ratio stands at 3.5 per cent, meaning it has more to do than the other big UK banks. Its shares rose 0.93 per cent yesterday. Tags: Barclays Company Forex rate-rigging scandallast_img
