Troubled banks release first quarter results
Barclays is on somewhat of a roll, having restored its dividend payout after slashing it in 2016.
The bank has also settled with the Department of Justice over the mis-selling of mortgage-backed securities for a not inconsiderable $2bn.
RBS on the other hand has still to settle with the DoJ and the bank has set aside considerable sums to cover what is looking like an inevitable fine.
Investors will also be keen to see if the bank’s recent return to profitability has been maintained.
