I don’t think you’ll find there is any connection between Virgin Money plc and Virgin Holdings other than a licensing agreement to use the Virgin name.18 months is relatively new in the world of business. IMO. I'm sure it has taken that amount of time to get staff thinking 'Virgin'
Branson’s equity interest in Virgin Money was bought out by a whole share offer takeover by CYBG (which was wholly owned by National Australia Bank). CYBG (as in Clydesdale Yorkshire Banking Group) bought Virgin Money, not the other way round. NAB floated it as Virgin Money.
There is no corporate connection between Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Money.
