HBOS Bosses Under Pressure After Banking Commission Report

Exit Sign

Pressure is growing on the three senior HBOS bankers accused of a "colossal failure" over the bank's 2008 collapse.

BBC News reports that The Banking Standards Commission says regulators should consider barring Sir James Crosby, Andy Hornby and Lord Stevenson from future banking jobs.

One MP has also called for Sir James, described as the 'architect' of HBOS's downfall, to be stripped of his title.

The bank was forced to merge with Lloyds in early 2009 and received a £20.5bn taxpayer bailout.

It was one of the most high profile casualties of the UK's banking crisis, which precipitated a wider economic downturn.

Sir James, who served as chief executive at HBOS between 2001 and 2006, earlier resigned from an advisory position he held at London-based investment firm Bridgepoint.
