CITY VIEWS: what can virgin do to shake up high street banking?

ALEX WATKINS | PATERNOSTER
“I’ve bought plane tickets from them but I'm not sure I would open a bank account with them. What do they know about banking? They haven’t got any experience of doing that and I like a bank to have an established reputation in the business.”

CHRIS CLARK | HUDSON RECRUITMENT GROUP
“I really hope they bring some decent customer service to banking. I’ve had accounts with big banks and they don’t want to know about decent service unless they can sell you something. More competition and better deals for customers is a good thing.”

ERIC SANCHEZ | DEUTSCHE BANK
“It doesn’t seem like a bad idea to have someone else on the high street. There’s a lot of mistrust of banks, so there’s room for more competition. Based on what they’ve done so far with trains, planes, phones... Virgin will probably make a good go of banking.””
