Barclays executives under fire for bonuses

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) - Shareholders are furious about the bonuses Barclays executives paid out last year.

Barclays' investment bankers shared a 2013 bonus pot of $2.7 billion up 13-percent from 2012.

That's despite the British bank's weak earnings.

At the bank's annual meeting, Barclays' shareholders accused the company of putting the interests of its investment bankers ahead of its owners. But Barclays Chairman David Walker said the bank needed to pay bigger bonuses to prevent its investment bankers from finding new jobs with competitors.
