NEW YORK — An Ohio pension fund has sued Wells Fargo & Co. to recover losses suffered when its recently acquired Wachovia Corp. put the fund's money into a risky investment vehicle that ultimately failed.
The School Employees Retirement System of Ohio, represented by state Attorney General Richard Cordray, said it lost $29.6 million from Wachovia's mismanagement of a securities lending program marketed as a “low-risk” way to earn extra returns.
