Barclays is poised to receive bids for the whole of its asset management arm, Barclays Global Investors, after writing a break clause into its deal to sell the division’s exchanged-traded funds business iShares last week for £3bn.

The bank has indicated it will listen to offers for BGI by including a “go-shop” clause in the sale of iShares to private equity firm CVC Capital Partners.

Under the deal, Barclays has until June 18 to “solicit or consider proposals for a superior transaction involving iShares and potentially other related businesses”. Barclays had previously suggested it would not sell the whole of BGI, valued in the accounts at around £8bn.
