Jeb Bush Cuts Ties With British Bank Barclays

December 18, 2014 12:10 p.m.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is cutting his ties with the British bank Barclays.

It’s a move that further reinforces the idea that Bush will officially jump into the 2016 presidential race. Earlier in the week he announced that he planned to establish an a leadership PAC and was “actively” exploring running.

Bush currently serves as an adviser to Barclays. He plans to leave his position on Dec. 31, according to The Financial Times.

Bush’s ties to major banks like Barclays and others were called to attention recently in a wide-ranging Bloomberg BusinessWeek feature story.
