Wells Fargo : the future of a community bank by Alan Hoffman( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Wells Fargo, founded in San Francisco during the gold rush as a money delivery express, is now the fourth largest bank in the US and ranks number one in America's deposit market share. It achieved initial success by being a trustworthy custodian of its customers' wealth. By staying true to a customer-centric business model, it aims to fulfil all its customers' needs and help them succeed financially. After establishing itself as one of the best community banks in the US, Wells Fargo has expanded internationally as a global bank. It has also significantly diversified offerings in order to gain market share. Because of a comprehensive range of products, Wells Fargo is exposed to increasing risks and competition. During the global financial crisis, it was negatively impacted due to its large exposure to bad loans through acquisition of Wachovia. Although the combination of advanced online banking technology and its massive physical network makes Wells Fargo stand out from its competitors, it remains challenging for the company to gain or maintain a leading position. If not managed properly, the diversifying strategy may in the end endanger Wells Fargo's overall market share. The 2010 US financial reform legislation may limit growth potential for a large bank like Wells Fargo. How Wells Fargo can succeed in this increasingly regulated yet highly competitive industry is an open question
Target Corp's tarnished reputation : failure in Canada and a massive data breach by Alan Hoffman( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Target is a US mass-market discount store catered to shoppers seeking high quality products. In a crowded market, Target was eager to grow its business outside the US and online. It expanded to Canada in 2011 by acquiring a failed retailer. A move that seemed prudent actually saddled Target with inconveniently located stores and strained its logistics infrastructure. Closing down its Canadian stores, Target focused on strengthening its online presence. But two massive data breach incidents in 2013 and 2014 affected over 100 million of its customers and weakened Target's sales significantly. In order to keep its market share on a par with competitors such as Walmart and Amazon, Target clearly has challenges to be met
