Capital One loses in mortgage closure


Capital One acquired GreenPoint, which specialised in jumbo loans above $417,000, last year when it acquired North Fork Bank for $13.2 billion. In the aftermath of the subprime crisis, GreenPoint has laid off 1,900 staff, in addition to over 2,000 job cuts announced in June by Capital One in a bid to reduce costs. Last year Capital One reported a third-quarter income of $587.8 million, reliant upon GreenPoint and Hibernia, which it purchased in 2005 for $4.9 billion, to transform it from a credit card and finance company into a larger banking institution with hundreds of branches.
