AS 06.26.850. Representative Office Business; Registration.

(a) An interstate state trust company, interstate national trust company, or international trust company may not provide fiduciary services, but may otherwise engage in trust business, at a representative office as permitted by AS 06.26.810 - 06.26.895.

(b) Subject to the requirements contained in AS 06.26.810 - 06.26.895, an interstate state trust company, interstate national trust company, or international trust company may establish or acquire representative offices in any location in this state.

(c) If an interstate state trust company or international trust company that does not maintain a trust office in this state wants to establish or acquire a representative office in this state, the trust company shall file a notice with the department on a form prescribed by the department. The trust company shall furnish a copy of a resolution adopted by its board authorizing the establishment or acquisition of the representative office and shall pay the filing fee established by the department by regulation. The notice required under this subsection must provide the name of the trust company, the location of the proposed representative office, and satisfactory evidence that the trust company is chartered or otherwise organized in another jurisdiction to act as a fiduciary.

(d) An interstate state trust company or international trust company may commence business at a representative office on the 61st day after the date that the department receives the notice required under (c) of this section unless the department specifies a different date.

(e) The department may extend the 60-day period of review provided by (d) of this section if the department determines that the written notice raises issues that require additional information or additional time for analysis by the department. If the 60-day period of review is extended, the trust company may establish the representative office only after written approval by the department.

(f) In addition to the other requirements of this section, in order to receive permission to establish or acquire a representative office in this state, an interstate state trust company or international trust company must have sufficient financial resources to undertake the proposed expansion without adversely affecting its safety or soundness and the proposed representative office may not be contrary to the public interest. When acting on the notice provided under (c) of this section, the department shall consider the views of the home jurisdiction regulator.

(g) The department may determine by order that an interstate state trust company or international trust company does not meet the requirements for establishing or acquiring a representative office in this state under this section. An order issued under this subsection is effective on the date of its issuance or on another date as the department may determine.

(h) An interstate national trust company shall give the department notice of its intent to establish or acquire a representative office in this state.
