A branch of Barclays bank is seen in London October 30, 2013. Barclays' profits fell 26 percent in the latest quarter from a year ago after earnings at its investment bank more than halved due to a slowdown in capital markets. Barclays on Wednesday reported an underlying pretax profit of 1.4 billion pounds ($2.3 billion) for the three months to the end of September, down from 1.9 billion a year ago but above an average forecast of 1.25 billion from analysts polled by the company.
