Loan-loss provision charges nearly triple at Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo put aside $9.6 billion to cover bad loans over the three months to end-June, up from $3.8 billion in Q1. 

Of this amount, around $8.4 billion was to bolster loss reserves, known as allowance for credit losses (ACL), and the remainder to write off delinquent obligations.

Total ACL as of end-June stood at $20.4 billion, up from $12 billion in Q1 and $10.5 billion at end-2019. This is the equivalent of 2.19% of outstanding loans.
