Woodstock Institute opposes this merger on the grounds that Capital One has an inadequate past record of meeting community financial needs. We also believe that the combined financial institution, as the fifth largest bank by deposits with a vulnerable portfolio heavily concentrated in credit cards, would pose significant risk to the financial system. Finally, this application demonstrates the inadequacy of current regulatory for ensuring that large financial institutions with limited branch networks are meeting the lending and financial services needs of low-wealth communities.
