The article reports that Barclays Capital has started its campaign to reenter the U.S. leveraged finance market by recruiting two senior managers away from Goldman Sachs. Joe McGrath, former head of high-yield syndicates, and Frederick Van Zijl, a leveraged finance banker, are transferring to Barclay's Midtown New York headquarters. However, Barclays' plan to move into the market is ill-timed because trading margins in high-yield bonds have decreased dramatically over the past few years.
