Wells Fargo Bank Philippines

Its representative office shut down on May 31, 2021. The US-based Wells Fargo Bank now only has its business processing operations (BPO) in the Philippines, located on 36th Street in Fort Bonifacio.


Wells Fargo Closing Down Branches in the USA

In the United States, Wells Fargo has continued implementing its plan to shut down more branches, located in different states, and has stopped offering personal lines of credit. The bank, based in San Francisco, California, has shut down 329 of its 5,200 branches in 2020 and plans to close about 250 more in 2021. The bank plan to cut at least $10 billion in annual costs to improve efficiency and be able to compete with other banks.

A personal line of credit is an unsecured credit and one can borrow from it any time after the line is established. In the Philippines, this type of credit is not yet offered to mainstream customers and offered only to private banking clients.

Wells Fargo though says it still offers personal loans and credit card loans. Wells Fargo account owners also are advised to monitor their credit reports, as closure of credit accounts impact credit reports.
