    Clydesdale Bank issues banknotes in Scotland. Surely they're not going to be Virgin Money notes? I think it's a shame the noble Clydesdale and Yorkshire brands will be disappearing in favour of the brash Richard Branson inspired brand.

    Couldn't really give a XXXX what they're called as long as they have decent interest paying accounts which compared to most they do.
    Nostalgia doesn't put pennies in my pocket, moving with the times does.
    The Virgin brand is worth considerably more than either Clydesdale/Yorkshire and is likely to attract a much higher 'footfall' for them.

    The Clydesdale brand will still be used for Sterling notes - however, given how Brexit is going, I think that it may be a moot point anyway.

    Clydesdale Bank plc can use the Virgin Money brand much the same way they do with Yorkshire & B currently.

    I have been told they are to continue issuing Clydesdale Bank notes, not Virgin Money bank notes - don't worry there will not be notes with Richard Branson's face, which some folk thought might be the case.

    New VM logo too. Wonder how much they paid someone to think up putting the Virgin logo as the ‘O’ in Money

    I see they are planning to "launch a rewards based [new] Virgin Money personal current account with competitive linked savings offering". Soft launch end of 2019, full launch 1H 2020. There's nothing in the presentation that talks about incentives for people to switch to VM, but here's hoping :cool:

    Let's hope now Virgin have had their current account running for several years their new one can be run as a full online account as their current one is still restricted.

    Not really complaining but it would be nice to be able to move money and set up standing orders.

    I believe they will all be switched via the CASS to what is essentially a rebadged ‘B’ current account. So this should become a fully functional account.

    It’s all been very slow moving so far, you’ll more than likely rebrand B first.
