BCS SHAREHOLDER ALERT: The Law Firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP Announces Investigation of Barclays PLC

NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

The law firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP is investigating possible violations of federal securities laws by officers and directors of Barclays PLC (Barclays) (NYSE: BCS).

On June 25, 2014, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced a lawsuit against Barclays alleging that the British banking and financial services firm misled large institutional investors and other clients in connection with the operation and marketing of the firm's "dark pool." Specifically, the complaint filed in New York state court alleges that Barclays' Equities Electronic Trading Division defrauded clients by, among other things, concealing biased order routing practices, misleading clients concerning their exposure to predatory high frequency trading, and improperly disclosing confidential information concerning the dark pool to high frequency traders, including information on the identity and trading activity of other traders. According to the Attorney General, the complaint describes "a flagrant pattern of fraud, deception and dishonesty with Barclays cliens and the investing public."

On the above news, Barclays shares have fallen over 6% in trading on June 26, 2014.

Persons with relevant information, and Barclays shareholders with questions about this investigation, are invited to contact the attorney below, or our Firm by calling 866.833.6245.
