Wells Fargo’s top priority is building a risk and control infrastructure appropriate for its size and complexity. The termination of the 2015 consent order is a step in this work, as the company continues to focus on resolving legacy regulatory issues. In September 2021, a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) consent order issued in 2016 regarding the bank’s retail sales practices expired. In January 2021, the OCC terminated a 2015 consent order related to the company’s Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering compliance program. In May 2020, the OCC upgraded Wells Fargo’s Community Reinvestment Act rating to “outstanding.”
