The top U.S. securities regulator has questioned Wells Fargo & Co (WFC) over its accounting for a roughly $20 billion portfolio of troubled loans.In a letter sent in September that became public on Tuesday, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) asked the bank’s controller, Richard Levy, to explain how Wells Fargo went about valuing the portfolio, which it acquired primarily by buying Wachovia.
The SEC’s questions, which may represent another headache for Wells Fargo following a sales scandal, relate to assumptions the bank made in determining how to value the loans.

The values can rise or fall importantly over time, depending partly on the accuracy of the guesswork, which in turn can lead to gains or losses.
