Will the WTF Get a New Sponsor? Barclays in Deep Trouble!

Quote:
Barclays could face approximately $7.1 billion in litigation costs, which may go even higher depending on the magnitude of the manipulation.
Will the ATP stick with Barclays despite their huge scandal and soon to be debt? Or will they dump Barclays and get a new sponsor? I'd say the best decision would be to screw Barclays It's a pretty big scandal, and a big deal since Barclays is a major sponsor of the ATP, so I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread yet

Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

Possibly. Or they might relocate. Or did they sign a contract? For some reason I vaguely remember them signing a contract to stay in London till like 2015? But now I can't find anything about that.

Time for HSBC or Lloyds to step up.

Though to be fair, almost all the big banks are in scandal trouble.

For normal people, yes.

That is chump change for them, really. Barclays has like 2.5 trillion, with a T, in their holdings

HSBC with their recent money-laundering are not the best proposition.

They may have a lot of assets but the assets are not the bank's but the property of shareholders.

I still very much doubt they'll drop it this year, as banks have been known to write down huge charges. I'm sure they've made their fair share of profits from the cartel which encompasses the global financial system.
