According to a Bloomberg report, Wells Fargo executives anticipate that its $1.95 trillion asset cap may not be lifted until at least the first quarter of 2025. The US Federal Reserve put the cap in place in February 2018 following a string of regulatory issues at the bank.

The cap has stifled the bank's growth while its largest competitors — JPMorgan Chase, Citi, and Bank of America — have seen a swell in deposits. Wells Fargo's executives initially predicted compliance with the Fed's requirements by the end of 2018. However, CEO Charlie Scharf has refrained from speculation since he took the helm in 2019.
