American Residential Mortgage Corp. has opened the first of several inner-city branches that it is planning as part of a bid to increase its lending to minorities across the country, the company announced.

La Jolla, Calif.-based American Residential said the opening of the branch last Friday in San Diego was the first move in its "fair lending initiative," which is designed to underscore its commitment to minority borrowers. Six other branches are planned.
