Barclays chief executive Martin Taylor left the bank with a £1.5m golden handshake. Taylor quit in November after a boardroom bust-up with non-executive directors.
It is understood he will get a lump-sum cash payment worth about his 1997 basic salary of £738,000. It is not clear if he will be paid a bonus. But he will get 81,900 share options worth £616,000 at the current Barclays share price.
