BANK OF DAVE
Self-made millionaire Dave Fishwick has had enough of the banks and their culture of bonuses and bail outs. He’s decided that he will take what he’s learned in building up his van dealership to start his own bank in his hometown of Burnley.
The banking establishment don’t think he can do it, and the FSA won’t even meet him. Luckily, he’s not the sort of man who gives up easily.
