Holly's View

Holly has accounts with all the providers on our website and independently reviews all of them.

Needs work. Virgin aspires to be seen as a cool disrupter so I wasn’t expecting the diversion from web to paper-based investment journey. I don’t enjoy my leaflet which is posted every 3 months with a performance update. Oh dear. Probably much better for ISAs than general investment accounts.

Overall Summary

Ease of use

Virgin does start off quite well with a simple online journey where you select one of 6 ready-made funds. The front end is well signposted and easy to use. But outside of the ISA journey it quickly went horribly wrong and we ended up in a snail mail universe. Performance updates and valuations come quarterly when a leaflet is posed. Blimey.

Mobile & Apps

Virgin Money don’t currently have an app. It’s a slow process for investment accounts. Could be better for ISAs?
