The Empire Strikes Back - 2

It's announced today that Barclay's bank is seeking £7.3 bn from the State Investment Funds and the Royal Families of Qatar and Abu Dhabi. This begs the question about the difference between the State Funds and the Royal Families. Putting that aside, it would give them a 32 % stake in Barclay's.

16.3 % of the stake would be held by one person of the Abu Dhabi Royal Family.
His name is Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

I rest my case.
