Barclays Investment Bank's Macro business is a consolidated platform for sales and trading of interest rate, foreign exchange and commodity derivative products.


A consolidated platform for sales and trading of interest rate and foreign exchange cash and derivative products.

Understanding the interconnectivity between rates and foreign exchange (FX) markets has become increasingly important to both our institutional and corporate clients. Our Macro business combines coverage of these asset classes to respond better to their needs.

Barclays has long been a recognised leader in rates and foreign exchange products, and we combine this strength with our focused emerging markets business. Our teams, based in financial hubs across the globe, assist clients to anticipate the impact of macro market moves and events on their portfolios. For example, we might help a client understand the impact of central bank interest rate decisions on currency markets or a faster-than-expected pick-up in inflation on the yield on government bonds.

We strive to give clients the critical short-term and thematic insights they need to effectively manage their portfolios, and partner with them to structure, buy and sell products to meet their hedging and investment goals. Our trading desks specialise in understanding flows across interest rates and FX in G10 and emerging market currencies, including:

  • government bonds
  • agency and supra-sovereign bonds
  • commercial paper
  • interest rate derivatives (including structured products)
  • inflation-linked products
  • cross currency derivatives
  • agency RMBS
  • spot foreign exchange
  • foreign exchange forwards and options
