BancWest Corp. said yesterday that its Bank of the West subsidiary has completed the acquisition of seven former branches of First Security Bank in metropolitan Las Vegas.
First Security divested the branches in connection with its merger with Wells Fargo & Co. The seven locations will open Tuesday as Bank of the West branches.
Last September, BancWest announced that it had agreed to acquire the branches, as well as 23 other First Security locations in New Mexico. The New Mexico acquisition is expected to close in mid-February.
The Honolulu-based bank holding company is the parent company of First Hawaiian Bank in Honolulu and the San Francisco-based Bank of the West.
