    As mentioned in the article that this thread is about, RBS, NatWest and Ulster have separate FSCS protections despite being subsidiaries within the same group.
    Is this something that the RBS Group has decided and hence will it be down to CYBG to decide if they wish to cancel or retain the separate VM FSCS identity for financial protection purposes?

    I have just received my email from Virgin Money and it reads as follows:

    If you have savings with Clydesdale Bank, Yorkshire Bank or B, and Virgin Money then your Financial Services Compensation Scheme protection level isn’t affected at all by the two businesses coming together. If this changes, we’ll write to let you know.

    This clearly states that the current level of FSCS protection cover will remain unless otherwise advised.

    They claim to be FCA regulated but the FCA link (section 1.1) on their FAQ page is a dead link and they're not listed on the Financial Services Register. Neither are their parent company - Digital House Group Ltd. They don't seem to be listed directly with Companies House. Digital House Group Ltd are listed and their directors all live in Argentina or the USA.

    I was just searching the FCA's site for another company and noticed they'd posted this on their unauthorised firms list, four days after I posted the previous message. Hopefully you didn't invest !

    Not only are they not authorised, on their website they still explicitly say they're authorised:
