A company owned by the billionaire Barclay family is trying to refinance a $200 million loan it received from Greensill Capital, a move that would potentially offer some relief to Credit Suisse Group AG funds that invested in debt arranged by the now-defunct specialty lender, Bloomberg News reported. Shop Direct Holdings Ltd. is in advanced talks to refinance the debt from Greensill, which was then sold on to funds run by Credit Suisse. The loan was unpaid as of June 29, according to a Credit Suisse presentation seen by Bloomberg.
The battering to Wall Street banks from Archegos Capital Management topped $10 billion after UBS Group AG and Nomura Holdings Inc. reported fresh hits caused by the fund’s collapse, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Meantime, Japan’s Nomura, which flagged losses of around $2 billion last month, upped its total damage tally to $2.85 billion.
