The Week Ahead: Wells Fargo, One Year Later

Wells FargoOn Tuesday, Wells Fargo President and CEO Tim Sloan will meet with the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs to discuss the past, present, and future of the company.

The company has recently revealed that another 1.4 million unauthorized accounts were uncovered in an internal investigation.
