Editor’s remarks:
Last month it was revealed that Wells Fargo employees had created two million fake accounts to meet and surpass sales targets. The initial cost was its tumbling share price coupled with a $185m settlement. However, the San Francisco bank has since released earnings to give deeper insight into the real impact on its business.
