Bob Diamond, CEO of Barclays Capital, is looking towards the U.K. and European mortgage finance market as a key growth area.
“We’ve very interested in real-estate finance in the U.K. and Europe. They’re in the very early stages of growth and we see a lot of the signs of the development. It’s one of the most exciting growth areas of our business,” Diamond said, speaking to "Squawk Box Europe” at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Diamond also noted the development of the derivatives market as a focus for the company.
