Opus Bank, which is based in Irvine and has $2.4 billion in assets, said Feb. 22 that it recently opened three more offices, including one in La Jolla.

The bank said the additional offices bring its total in Southern California to 18, and to 40 for the company, which also operates branches in Washington state.

The La Jolla office is at 7979 Ivanhoe Ave., Suite 150, and is managed by Brenda Boggioni, the company said.

The two other new branches are in Orange County.

Opus, which was launched in 2010 after a $460 million capital raise, has been in an expansion mode, and recently announced plans to open eight other branches, including one in Del Mar that should happen in the first quarter, the company said.
