(Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co's compliance chief is leaving after two years of trying to turn around the scandal-plagued bank's internal oversight and risk management functions, the Financial Times reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the decision.

Chief Compliance Officer Mike Roemer will be replaced by Paula Dominick, who has been chief compliance officer for Credit Suisse Americas and previously worked for Bank of America Corp , according to the report https://www.ft.com/content/ffeb7a3b-6908-4ea5-a848-841bad14297b.

Wells Fargo declined to comment on the report.

The move comes after Wells Fargo said in July that Mike Santomassimo would replace John Shrewsberry as chief financial officer when he retires in the fall after more than two decades at the firm.

Since taking over as chief executive in October, Charles Scharf has shaken up leadership at the bank and installed a slew of former colleagues and confidants in top positions.

The change at Wells Fargo also comes as it gears up to launch a broad cost-cutting initiative this year and continues to work through expensive regulatory and operational problems tied to a long-running sales scandal.

"The question is whether this just a symbolic gesture to the United States

China's Xi says navy should become world class | Reuters

BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater efforts to make the country's navy a world class one, strong in operations on, below and above the surface, as it steps up its ability to project power far from its shores.China's navy has taken an increasingly prominent role in recent months, with a rising star admiral taking command, its first aircraft carrier sailing around self-ruled Taiwan and a new aircraft carrier launched last month.With President Donald Trump promising a US shipbuilding spree and unnerving Beijing with his unpredictable approach on hot button issues including Taiwan and the South and East China Seas, China is pushing to narrow the gap with the U.S. Navy.Inspecting navy headquarters, Xi said the navy should "aim for the top ranks in the world", the Defence Ministry said in a statement about his visit."Building a strong and modern navy is an important mark of a top ranking global military," the ministry paraphrased Xi as saying.
