Financial services firm mulls Miami-Dade

September 15, 2009 01:57PM

An unnamed financial services firm, thought by observers to be Wells Fargo, is considering coming to Miami-Dade County as part of its expansion plans. Should the San Mateo, Calif.-based company, whose identity remains undisclosed through the process, come to South Florida, it could create 366 new jobs. Well Fargo bought Wachovia Bank late in 2008 and took over South Florida branches, taking over the top market share spot by deposits. It now has 223 branches.
