Strong loan and deposit growth led to increased profits for Wells Fargo in 2013 — to the tune of $21.9 billion, up 16% from $18.9 billion the previous year. The banking behemoth had nearly $826 billion in loans on the books at the end of the year, compared with nearly $800 billion at the end of 2012. In 2014, the company is looking to strengthen its dominant mortgage lending business by lowering the minimum credit score for residential mortgages. It also wants to build up its relatively weak credit card business by launching two new credit card products aimed at big spenders.
