Wilshire State Bank

Wilshire Bank (formerly Wilshire State Bank) was established in 1980 and is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Wilshire was one of the few Korean-American banks to have both a multi-ethnic customer base and Board of Directors. With about 600 employees, it had 37 branches in Alabama, California, Georgia, Texas, New Jersey, and the New York metropolitan area as well as loan production offices in Atlanta, Aurora, Newark and Federal Way. The Bank offered business and personal banking, commercial lending, SBA lending, trade finance, construction lending and home mortgage. It was formerly known as Wilshire State Bank and changed its name to Wilshire Bank in 2013. As of September 30, 2015, it had $4.7 billion in assets, $3.6 billion in loans and $4 billion in deposits.

In 2016, Wilshire Bank merged with BBCN Bank to form Bank of Hope, a super regional Korean-American bank with approximately $14 billion in total assets as of December 2016.
