Investopedia explains 'Unitary Thrift'


Unitary thrifts are allowed to open branches anywhere in the U.S. They can also allocate up to 20% of their assets to commercial loans. Because they are still thrift institutions, they must hold at least 65% of their assets in qualified thrift investments, such as residential mortgages or mortgage-backed securities.
