Join our diverse and inclusive team where you’ll feel valued and inspired to contribute your unique skills and experience.

Help us build a better Wells Fargo. It all begins with outstanding talent. It all begins with you.

Corporate Risk helps all Wells Fargo businesses identify and manage risk. We focus on three key risk areas: credit risk, operational risk and market risk. We help our management and Board of Directors identify and monitor risks that may affect multiple lines of business, and take appropriate action when business activities exceed the risk tolerance of the company

The Financial Crimes Risk Management (FCRM) group within the Corporate Compliance organization is the independent risk management function for the financial crimes risk disciplines which include BSA/AML, Sanctions, OFAC, and Fraud.  FCRM owns the Global Financial Crimes Risk Management (FCRM) Program that documents how FCRM manages financial crimes risk in a comprehensive and effective manner to protect the Company and its reputation. 

The FCRM Targeted Risk and Controls Evaluation (TRACE) Team is responsible for executing targeted reviews in the areas of high and emerging financial crimes risk in accordance with the FCRM TRACE Review Activities Program (RAP).  These review activities include targeted reviews that are conducted as needed to independently evaluate the adequacy and effectiveness of business processes or activities and mitigating controls.
