LONDON: The chief executive of Barclays bank has stepped down following what that bank's board described as a "disappointing? report by the UK's Financial Conduct authority into his past links with the late financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Jes Staley says he will contest the findings.

The bank said Monday that "the investigation makes no findings that Staley saw, or was aware of, any of Epstein's alleged crimes."

Epstein killed himself at a Manhattan federal lockup in August 2019, a month after his arrest on sex trafficking charges.
