  1. Barclays CEO Probed Over Epstein Ties

    The British lender confirmed Thursday that two U.K. watchdogs are investigating the long relationship between CEO Jes Staley and deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Barclays said Staley — who visited Epstein's private island in 2015, but claimed he'd cut ties after becoming CEO later that year — had been "sufficiently transparent" during its own review.

    Could Barclays take a hit? Shares dropped 2.4 percent in morning trading, though the bank also posted a gross annual profit increase of 9 percent.
