Wells Fargo Issues Statement on 2019 Resolution Plan Feedback by Federal Reserve and FDIC

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) today issued a statement regarding the joint feedback letter from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) with respect to Wells Fargo’s 2019 Resolution Plan. The agencies’ letter confirms that there are no deficiencies in Wells Fargo’s 2019 Resolution Plan.

"We are pleased that the Federal Reserve and FDIC found our 2019 Resolution Plan to be free of deficiencies. We believe this result recognizes our successful implementation of an iterative process that further strengthened our resolution planning capabilities, and that our robust resolution planning framework is designed to proactively mitigate potential adverse impacts on the financial system. Wells Fargo is committed to continued strengthening of these established capabilities, and we will address the feedback we received from the agencies in connection with our 2019 Resolution Plan within the time requested."

Required by federal law, resolution plans are a form of contingency planning that describe the company's strategy for rapid and orderly resolution in bankruptcy without government support or imperiling the broader financial system during severe financial distress.
