Janet Yellen's Fed tenure may be the calm before the storm

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen smiles before giving a speech during a conference at Brown University in Providence R.I. Yellen's last day at the Fed is Friday Feb. 2 2018. Then she will start a new

"We can not tolerate pervasive and persistent misconduct at any bank, and the consumers harmed by Wells Fargo expect that robust and comprehensive reforms will be put in place to make certain that the abuses do not occur again", Janet Yellen said in a statement issued on her last day as the Fed's chair.

He described Yellen's record at the Fed as "pretty darn good". "The banking system is more resilient", Yellen said.

U. S. banks already expect revenues to climb and the profitability of their lending to rise this year due to lower corporate tax rates and higher interest rates.

The Fed made no note of any abuses that were new by Wells Fargo in the statement and neither of the releases by the Fed mentioned specific names of bank board members who, would be leaving.

"Ultimately it's limited by productivity growth, which is weak", she said. "Price-earnings ratios are near the high end of their historical ranges". Shares briefly dropped by 6% at the bank during afterhours trading. "They have strategically assembled a terrific set of assets in and after the financial crisis, including the largest mortgage portfolio in the United States".

The Fed ordered the bank to submit a plan for improving board oversight and risk management. President Barack Obama appointed him to the Fed's board of governors in 2012, has been a Fed governor for more than five years, and has helped shaped policy under Yellen.

"We can not tolerate pervasive and persistent misconduct at any bank and the consumers harmed by Wells Fargo expect that robust and comprehensive reforms will be put in place to make certain that the abuses do not occur again", Chair Janet L. Yellen said.

"The firm's lack of effective oversight and control of compliance and operational risks contributed in material ways to the substantial harm suffered", the Fed's supervision director, Michael Gibson, said in a separate letter to the board.

After Federal Reserve approval, the company will engage independent third parties to conduct a review to be completed no later than September 30, 2018 to confirm adoption and implementation of the plans.

The vote for the sanctions was 3-0, with the incoming chairman, Jerome Powell, joining Yellen and Gov. Lael Brainard.

Yellen added that the enforcement action the Fed is taking will ensure Wells Fargo is not going to expand until it can do so in a safe manner and with protections in place that are needed to manage all its risks and to protect all its customers.
