Wells Fargo

Three years after Wells Fargo's fake accounts scandal erupted, the cleanup continues. There have been countless lawsuits, two CEO exits (three, if you count the departure of an interim leader), and, this February, a new $3 billion fine to resolve further investigations. A $1.95 trillion asset cap on Wells Fargo, imposed by the Federal Reserve in 2018, continues to limit the bank’s growth compared with its peers. Now, CEO Charles Scharf, who joined in October 2019, is tasked with reforming Wells Fargo’s image in the eyes of consumers and regulators alike. Scharf, a former CEO of Bank of New York Mellon, and before that, Visa, is the first top leader brought in from outside Wells Fargo in more than a century; so far he has reorganized reporting lines and brought in more outside executives.
