Rich Ricci, the boss of Barclays' investment bank who collected $26 million in deferred bonuses last month, is leaving the scandal-hit bank as its new chief executive seeks to cut back executive pay and repair its image. The American-born Ricci, a star performer at Barclays known for his love of horse racing, was a key lieutenant of Bob Diamond, the former chief executive who left Britain's third largest bank last year after a Libor interest rate rigging scandal...Speculation intensified that Ricci, 49, who is estimated to have earned at least 80 million pounds ($122 million) from his 19 years at Barclays, would go after CEO Antony Jenkins failed to publicly back him when he unveiled a new strategy in February. "It's part of the ongoing cultural revolution at Barclays," said Simon Maughan, analyst at Olivetree Securities. [Reuters, related]
