Nigel Rees, operations manager at Virgin Money, said: "Edinburgh as a location is key to our business; the city is a world-class financial centre with an abundance of opportunities for growth. Venue Studios has been our UK headquarters for over a year now. We are delighted to be able to expand within the building."

Mark Jones, director at property firm DTZ, which acted for Virgin Money in the office lease deal, said: "This is an important deal for Edinburgh, which further cements a growing financial house to the city. It also demonstrates that where landlords can supply space which offers value and quality, it will let."
