Diamond Antithesis Seen as First Step to Repairing Barclays

Barclays Plc needs to find a successor for Robert Diamond who is the opposite of the American investment banker as a first step to restoring political trust.

Diamond, 60, quit last week after the London-based bank was fined a record 290 million pounds ($449 million) for trying to rig the London interbank offered rate, the benchmark interest rate for more than $360 trillion of securities.
