PacWest’s loans jitter, deposits dwindle in race towards merger

Merging partner Banc of California also sees deposit base slip further

The bank’s non-accrual loans – excluding those held for sale – hit $125 million at end-September, up 24% on end-June and 39% on end-March, driven by residential mortgages and the ‘venture capital’ division catering to equity backers and start-ups.
