A demonstrator protests against market speculation on food commodities outside the Barclays Bank Annual General Meeting at the Royal Festival Hall in London April 25, 2013.  Barclays promised a rigorous review of executive pay and a cooperative relationship with regulators as it tries to dispel a reputation for reckless risk-taking and unethical behaviour that caused a series of scandals. The British bank said on Wednesday it would reform its standards and culture, from improving coordination within its executive team to forcing all staff to attend a course on the company's new values.
