Time to get into banking – Virgin leads the way

Bank Systems & Technology just alerted me to the fact that Virgin Money has opened as a wholesale mortgage market for US mortgage brokers.  From their website:

With traditional banks on the ropes, what better time to launch and hit them a sucker punch?
