Please find the peer responses below:
1- The branches are widely spread, and the beneficiaries can complete their work more quickly than being concentrated in one place only, and also reduce costs and burdens on financial institutions and others.
2- The chartering of a new financing corporation is normally a lengthy and expensive process, requiring the completion of elaborate federal or state application forms, while the branch application process is normally far simpler and less costly. Moreover, with the increase in the number of failures in recent years regulatory-imposed capital requirements for new charters have increased substantially, while new branch offices usually carry significantly lower capital requirements. Moreover, branch offices themselves are often much less elaborate and costly to build and maintain than are the headquarters’ facility of a new institution where some duplicate facilities can be eliminated (for example, checking processing, credit analysis, and records departments)
