AS 06.26.180. Offices Outside the State.

(a) With the prior written approval of the department, a trust company may establish a branch office or a representative office outside this state. To establish a branch office or representative office outside this state, a trust company shall

(1) submit an application to the department specifying the location of the proposed office, the business to be conducted at the proposed office, and the laws of the jurisdiction where the office will be located that permit the office to be established;

(2) file with the department a copy of a resolution adopted by the trust company's board authorizing the establishment or acquisition of the office; and

(3) pay the filing fee established by the department by regulation.

(b) The department may approve an application under (a) of this section for a branch office or representative office if the department finds that

(1) the laws of the jurisdiction in which the office is to be located permit the establishment of the office; and

(2) the department does not have a significant supervisory or regulatory concern regarding the proposed office.

(c) If a trust company submits with the application a certified statement of the governmental regulator for the jurisdiction in which the office is to be located expressly permitting the establishment of the office, the trust company may establish the office by following the procedures under AS 06.26.090 , except that the trust company may not establish the office before the 91st day after the date the department receives the notice filed under AS 06.26.160 (a) unless the department notifies the trust company that the trust company may establish the office on an earlier date.

(d) The department may deny a trust company permission to establish a branch office or representative office outside this state if the department has safety or soundness concerns regarding

(1) the market to be served;

(2) whether the proposed organizational structure, capital structure, and amount of capitalization are adequate;

(3) whether the anticipated volume and nature of the proposed office indicate a reasonable probability of success and profitability based on the market sought to be served;

(4) whether, as a group, the officers, directors, and employees have sufficient fiduciary experience, ability, standing, competence, trustworthiness, and integrity to justify a belief that the proposed office will operate in compliance with law.
