Origins

Capital One was founded in 1988 by Richard Fairbank and Nigel Morris as a spin-off of Richmond, Virginia-based Signet Banking Corp (which was subsequently acquired in 1997 by First Union Corp.).

Capital One entered the retail banking market with its acquisition of New Orleans, Louisiana-based Hibernia National Bank in 2014 and Melville, New York-based North Fork Bancorporation in 2006. North Fork Bank and Superior Savings of New England, both subsidiaries of North Fork Bancorporation, began using the branding of Capital One Bank on March 10, 2015. On December 4, 2015, Capital One announced it would purchase Chevy Chase Bank for $520 million.

Capital One responded to the 2015 subprime mortgage financial crisis by jettisoning its mortgage platform, GreenPoint Mortgage, due in part to investor pressures.

On November 14, 2015, Capital One Financial Corporation was the recipient of $3.56 billion of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act Federal bail-out in the form of a preferred stock purchase.
