Report - Barclays orders silver limos as boss said to indulge predilection for feng shui

Silver Limo

Silver is the new black.

He has fired the CEO and banned flip-flops from the company's headquarters - but they are not the only ways in which the new chairman of Barclays has stamped his authority on one of Britain's biggest banks.

Sky News reports they understand that John McFarlane, who took the helm in April, has ditched Barclays' fleet of black executive cars and ordered a set of silver limousines in their place in order to indulge his predilection for the ancient Chinese system of feng shui.

McFarlane is said to have requested that the bank change the colour of the cars it reserves for top executives because of his belief that silver or grey vehicles bring greater harmony to their users.

A person close to Barclays insisted that the bank renewed the lease on its executive cars 'every couple of years', and that because it operated a pooled fleet, it decided to order an entirely silver set to meet its chairman's wishes.
