    In the years since the financial crisis, the UK’s largest banks have experienced successive misconduct problems and Barclays has been no exception. These scandals have included manipulating the global benchmark interbank exchange rate LIBOR, mis-selling protection insurance (PPI) and relaxing investigatory requirements, which safeguard against fraud and money laundering for ultra=high-net-worth clients, resulting in multiple fines from the UK and US regulators.

    The passive investor by his or her very nature is an owner – not a trader – of the companies he invests in. Selling out of a poorly performing company is not an option. Depending on the index he is tracking, the passive investor will be widely invested – typically in hundreds, if not thousands of companies – and therefore is also interested in the long-term sustainability of the wider economy in which he participates. This goes beyond the direct value of the companies he invests in to so-called externalities such as pollution and bribery and corruption which can detrimentally impact the functioning of the real economy.
