    Barclays Barclays is a British bank with operations in more than 50 countries including the US, Japan, India, Europe and many African countries. It is part of the UK big four, referring to the four largest UK-based banking groups which also include HSBC, Lloyds and RBS. Founded in 1690 by James Barclay, Barclays has operations in a diverse set of consumer and wholesale businesses including retail, wealth management, corporate lending, credit cards and mortgages. It currently operates its business via two clearly defined divisions-Barclays UK and Barclays International. In this case study analysis, we analyse the various strategic business units in Barclay's portfolio and assess which ones are the stars and cash cows generating the most value, or the question marks, and dogs that may need further investment or divesting to achieve a balance of the portfolio.
