Barclays reports "significant" fall in fixed-income revenue

Barclays (BCS) expects to report a "small reduction" in Q1 adjusted pretax profit due to a "significant" drop in revenue from the fixed-income credit and commodities (FICC) operations at the company's investment bank.

CEO Anthony Jenkins said the decline reflects "difficult market conditions and a strong comparative performance for Q1 last year."

Barclays' FICC woe echoes the sharp falls in revenue that JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup have suffered at their respective operations.

However, Barclays' cost-cutting program is beginning to show a "material benefit," Jenkins said.

Barclays disclosed the information prior to its annual meeting today.

Shares are +1.1% premarket.
