In the UK, there are many businesses that have a long history but there are very few that can claim anything over 300 years. However, Barclays falls into this category with ease after first forming in 1690. Over the years, they provided various banking services to the people of London before finally expanding and becoming the multi-national corporation they are today.
Currently, their services are available all over the world but most prominent in the UK where they have over 1,600 branches. In addition to this, most branches have an ATM machine and they even have personal banking advisors in many Post Offices. Nowadays, they offer a wide range of products from credit cards to savings accounts and, as a result, help millions of people each and every year.
