Virgin, which describes itself as a "leading branded venture capital organization" says its business plan in North American involves "blasting into markets where the customer is underserved, offering value for money, good quality, innovation, exceptional customer service, fun and a sense of competitive challenge."

"Virgin executive Richard Branson getting into the mortgage business"

 That darn media. It really does not seem like the fellow's past "history", or lack of experience in a certain area, should have anything to do with his ability in the mortgage field.
