Alaska Wells Fargo customers come in from the cold

US bank Wells Fargo is offering its online banking and brokerage services to former National Bank of Alaska consumer, small business and corporate customers.

The two banks merged on 22 December 1999. The Internet-based service brings Alaska Wells Fargo customers in from the cold. They will benefit from personal finance, investment, business services and an online ATM network from the city of the North Pole, Alaska to the McMurdo Station near the South Pole.

The Wells Fargo Online Brokerage offers customers the chance to trade stocks, options and 7,000 mutual funds as well as providing real-time quotes, news alerts, research and charts.

The bank claims it is first major financial services company to integrate portfolio planning and tax analysis signals directly into its brokerage site.

A Resource Centre for Small Business Owners offers an end-to-end Internet resource. This features products and services to enhance business development and includes access to the Wells Fargo Business Online Banking service.

In addition, the Commercial Electronic Office provides a single point of access for commercial banking needs, including credit, international, trust, cash and treasury management services. No other bank offers a similar product, says the bank.
