Morzaria is chief financial officer of corporate and investment banking (CIB) at JP Morgan Chase, where he has spent most of his career. JP Morgan praised Morzaria’s “analytical ability, combined with his calm, steady demeanor” and said it would appoint his successor in the coming days. The move ends Barclays’ lengthy search for a finance director, after it said in February that Chris Lucas would step down after six years in the role. Morzaria, 44, will be paid a salary of 800,000 pounds and can earn an annual bonus of up to 2 million pounds and a long-term share award of up to 3.2 million.
