About Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo was founded in 1852 by the founders of American Express, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo. In 1998, the California-based company bought by the Minneapolis-based Norwest Corporation that was retained the name Wells Fargo. Measured by volume, the bank is the fifth largest of the United States. The bank is focused on individuals and has nearly 6,000 branches throughout the west and northwest and abroad, and a strong internet section. Even after numerous acquisitions, the company has its traditional ties with the “Wild West” and maintain the associated romantic image; the slogan of the bank is a nod to the 19th-century stagecoach which maintained the postal and finance.
On October 3, 2008 Wells Fargo surprised the world by taking over the troubled US bank bank Wachovia, the sixth of the United States, for an amount of $ 15 billion. The bank outperformed the previous bid by Citigroup with the support of the federal government. Through the merger, the size of the bank was almost doubled. The group now covered almost the entire country, with the exception of a few states in the Middle West.
The bailout plan of $ 250 billion that the US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson presented on October 15, 2008 (an elaboration of the previously adopted law) gave Wells Fargo a capital injection of $ 25 billion in exchange for preference shares, although Chairman Richard Kovacevich insisted the money was not needed.
