Wells Fargo views risk management as a strategic priority using sophisticated models, tools, and analytics to support our customers and to monitor and manage our business each day. We look at the risk and reward relationship in every deal that we do and in every decision that we make. We look across the spectrum to understand risks and how they interrelate, both in the analytics we use and in the way our risk managers work together. We take an enterprise-wide view of current and emerging risks, advising senior leaders and our Board of Directors in identifying and monitoring risks that may affect multiple Wells Fargo lines of business, and take appropriate action when business activities exceed the risk tolerance of the firm.
