About First Hawaiian Bank

First Hawaiian Bank is the largest – and oldest – financial institution in the State of Hawaii. The bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Hawaiian Inc., a Honolulu-based holding corporation.

First Hawaiian Bank dates to 1858 and businessmen Charles Bishop and William Aldrich. The partners launched Bishop & Co, the first successful banking partnership in the then Kingdom of Hawaii.  By 1910 the bank began operating on the island of Hilo, and by 1911 had opened a branch in Waimea.

By the 1920s, the bank grew with the acquisition of the Bank of Honolulu, and additional branches followed IN Kona and on Lana’i. By 1966, the bank was acquired, and later changed its name to First Hawaiian Bank in 1968.

By the 1990s and 2000s, the bank’s acquisitions continued, eventually merging with California-based Bank of the West. The bank later acquired the Guam and Saipan interests of Union Bank of California.

Today, First Hawaiian Bank is one of the largest banks on the NASDAQ exchange, with over $20 billion in total assets. The bank features over 50 branches across the Hawaiian Islands, as well as locations in Guam and Saipan.

 First Hawaiian Bank Locations

First Bank of Hawaii operates 57 locations across Hawaii, including branches on all the major islands. The bank also operates offices on Guam and Saipan.

For a complete listing of branch locations, including ATMs, contact numbers, and hours of operation, please visit the bank’s dedicated locations page.

Credit Cards

First Hawaiian is unique in that it is a regional bank that provides a co-branded credit card. The First Hawaiian Bank United® Card is an airline card that earns United MileagePlus miles with every purchase. What sets the First Hawaiian Card apart from other airline cards, however, is that it is marketed towards the Pacific Island resident that wants an excellent airline card.

That’s not to say that only those who live in Hawaii, Guam, or Saipan can apply – it is just a nice bonus for those who prefer to fly with United or another Star Alliance carrier.

The bank also provides a wide selection of great travel rewards credit cards through its Priority Destinations range.  These include:
