Wells Fargo’s Commitment to the Asian Community
Wells Fargo is proud to be the title sponsor of the 1st Annual Subtitle Film Festival. Wells Fargo’s relationship with the Asian community dates back to our early history over 150 years ago when we served Asian merchants as customers and employed Asians as agents. Today, Wells Fargo continues to demonstrate industry leadership and innovation in serving the greater Los Angeles area’s growing Asian Pacific Islander community. Our team members throughout the greater Los Angeles area speak more than 23 Asian languages including Korean, Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese and Thai. The Wells Fargo Asian Business Services program was created to make information and resources available to Asian business owners, through financial education and community outreach. Our 10-year public goal is to lend at least $3 billion to Asian-owned businesses by 2012. Since the program’s inception, Wells Fargo has already lent more than $2 billion to Asian business owners nationwide.
