Staley came under investigation by British bank regulators for trying to reveal a whistle-blower who criticized one of his senior hires. He also lost a big client, the private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Company, which was angered by Staley’s attempt to help his brother-in-law’s business interests at what KKR saw as its expense. He Staley has weathered the investigation as well as calls to throw him out at an annual shareholder meeting in May 2017.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/26/business/dealbook/jes-staley-barclays-ceo.html|name=James Staley’s Series of Unfortunate Events|org=The New York Times|date=April 20, 2018}}</ref>
