The integration team had planned and the changes are implemented. The two objectives to maintain the momentum and the fundamental values ​​of the Golden West operations in place have been performed.

But everything fell apart a few months after the integration, in July 2007, when Wachovia took a big hit in the mortgage loan disaster.
