Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo is an American multinational banking and financial services holding company with operations around the world. Wells Fargo delineates three different business segments: Community Banking, Wholesale Banking, and Wealth, Brokerage and Retirement.
The Community Banking segment includes regional banking, diversified products, and the consumer deposits groups, as well as Wells Fargo customer connection. Its Wholesale Banking segment contains products sold to large and middle market commercial companies, as well as to consumers on a wholesale basis. This includes lending, treasury management, mutual funds, asset-based lending, commercial real estate, corporate and institutional trust services, and capital markets and investment banking services through Wells Fargo Securities. One area that is very profitable to Wells Fargo is asset-based lending: lending to large companies using accounts receivable and inventory as collateral, though less traditional assets are often included in the collateral package. Wells Fargo offers investment products through its subsidiaries, Wells Fargo Investments, LLC and Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, as well as through national broker/dealer firms.
