Rivas joins Wells Fargo after a nearly 30-year career at JP Morgan Chase & Company (JPMC). He was most recently JPMC’s Head of North American Investment Banking. Prior to that, he was Co-Head of JPMC’s Global Financial Institutions Group. In these and other roles at JPMC, he built and led market-leading investment banking franchises and managed many of the firm’s largest investment banking relationships, including being involved in dozens of marquee strategic transactions and capital raises.

“Fernando joins our company at an exciting time,” Scharf said. “Our Corporate and Investment Bank has been an important part of the company for decades, and we have been carefully and methodically investing under Jon’s leadership to deepen and broaden our capabilities. We have added over 50 senior bankers and traders since 2020 and have seen the positive impact with increased revenue and market share.”

Scharf continued: “I have known Fernando for 20 years and have seen first-hand why so many CEOs regard him as one of the most talented bankers in our industry. His deep knowledge of our industry and keen strategic sense make him a great addition to our Operating Committee, and his background and skills will complement the terrific team Jon has put together as we continue to build a top-tier Corporate and Investment Bank while maintaining the strong risk disciplines we have had in place for so long.”

Weiss said, “I’ve gotten to know Fernando and am excited to be working with him. We share the same values, priorities, and vision for the CIB, and I’m looking forward to our partnership. I’m proud of the progress we have made and am excited about the opportunities in front of us as we continue to build on our strong momentum.”

Rivas said, “I am excited to partner with Charlie, Jon and the CIB leadership team to build on the strong momentum in the business, capture the enormous opportunity inherent in Wells Fargo’s franchise and deliver the excellence and humanity that are the cornerstones of an exceptional financial services business.”
