Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., the company’s major subsidiary, is a regional bank with its main office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. According to total assets, it is the fourth-largest bank in the US. It is also among the top banks when it comes to market capitalization and bank deposits. Citigroup, Bank of America, and JPMorgan Chase are also included.

The Wells Fargo Nevada National Bank was created in 1905 following the separation of Wells Fargo’s banking and express businesses.

 The “Big Four” American banks include Wells Fargo. 13,000 ATMs and 8,050 branches total. This bank brand is among the most valuable ones.

Wells Fargo was created in its current form in 1998 following the combination of the original Wells Fargo & Company and the Norwest Corporation, which had its headquarters in Minneapolis. Although Wells Fargo was the more well-known name, Norwest was the actual survivor of the merger, and it relocated to Wells Fargo’s headquarters in San Francisco.

The banking division of the company combined with the Sioux Falls-based banking division of Wells Fargo at the same time. With the 2008 acquisition of Wachovia, a Charlotte-based bank, Wells Fargo expanded its reach to all 50 states.

In order to offer “express” and banking services to California, which was expanding quickly as a result of the California Gold Rush, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo, who together with John Butterfield developed American Express, established Wells Fargo & Company in 1852. The transportation of “express” mail that was quicker and less expensive than U.S. Mail was one of its oldest and most important missions, along with transferring gold from the Philadelphia Mint.
