A 68-year-old who speaks so quietly that it can be difficult to hear what he says is making a big noise at Barclays bank.
Edward Bramson has amassed a 5.5% stake in the bank and on Thursday is urging shareholders to elect him to the board.
He wants the bank to scale back its investment division to boost returns at the lender.


Noting that this guy has form and this isn't a first.
