LONDON: Activist Sherborne Investors has committed to pursuing a shake-up in the management and strategy at Barclays , despite posting a 56per cent fall in its net asset value (NAV) in the last six months to 351 million pounds (US$459.32 million).
The investment vehicle, which is backed by several major British fund firms including Aviva , Schroders and Jupiter Asset Management , said it would continue its dialogue with Barclays "for as long as it appears to be appropriate to do so".
The investor said it currently holds a 5.9per cent stake in the lender following recent stock purchases. The Barclays share price has fallen by around 36per cent in the six months to June 30.
