Barclays PPI compensation bill up £600m
First up in the season of quarterly bank reporting is Barclays.
Once upon a time these points throughout the year was an opportunity to strut their peacock feathers, and shout from the rooftops just how much profit they’d made, thus enticing more and more shareholders.
Whilst there is still a small amount of this going on, it is also the time for banks to announce more compensation to be set aside for their never-ending misdemeanors.
Barclays bill hits £6bn
In Barclays latest figures they’ve confirmed they have had to set aside a further £600m for the Barclays PPI compensation bill in order to compensate customer for the huge mis-selling scandal.
This addition takes into account Barclaycard‘s share of the compensation payouts.
Overall we have edged closer to the £30bn mark, with the total bill now standing at a colossal £29.2bn when taking into account the smaller banks and lenders.
PPI compensation bill to pass £30bn by weekend?!
This would see the £30bn mark surpassed before the end of the week.
When will it end?
In the early days the so-called city experts suggested a final PPI bill of £25bn.
We have always dismissed this as a wish rather than a true estimation.
After all, these banks must attempt to keep their shareholders happy, even if it does mean being somewhat economical with the truth!
With £50bn worth of PPI policies being sold, the final bill will depend on a few factors, the main two being….
- The estimated 7 million who have yet to make a claim, do so. With a significant amount of UK consumers being sold PPI without their knowledge, there remains a huge number still to come forward.
- When banks and lenders reject valid claims, which they systematically do, never take no for an answer
Our estimation suggests the final PPI bill will be closer to £40bn.
