The company has revealed it has an extra £350m spend available and has committed two-thirds of the funds to a combination of technology platform and its product portfolio,according to the Financial Times,
"We have an extra £350m additional spend and two-thirds of this will be invested in products and the IT infrastructure," said a Barclays spokesman.
The remaining one-third will be spent on people, said Barclays Wealth.
