Adoboli was recently sentenced to seven years in jail after operating the largest unauthorized trading scandal in British history. He was convicted of two counts of fraud.
Barclays (BCS) is another popular search. Qatar Holding said it has sold its remaining warrants in the British bank.
Qatar remains the largest shareholder in Barclays. Its 6.7% stake in Barclays remains unchanged. The sovereign wealth fund said it monetized 379 million units of Barclays warrants, which it acquired during the financial crisis when Barclays raised money from new investors. Deutsche Bank (DB) and Goldman Sachs (GS) sold as many as 303.3 million shares in Barclays for 244 pence apiece. Qatar said it remains confident in Barclays' long-term prospects, despite selling the warrants.
