Part of the rationale behind the multi-business organisational structure is that headquarters can do a better job of allocating resources across the various businesses than the capital markets would if the businesses stood alone.

On the other hand, HQ has relatively fewer investment opportunities, and can be subject to conflicts of interest with shareholders.
