Forbes: First Hawaiian a top 10 bank

LIHUE — Forbes magazine recently issued its annual America’s 100 Largest Bank List and First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaii’s largest bank, came in ranked at No. 9.

First Hawaiian Bank is the only Hawaii Bank that made it into the top 10 rank. This is the first time First Hawaiian Bank has been eligible to participate in this Forbes bank ranking since it became a public company following its initial public offering in August 2016.

“We are very proud to represent the state of Hawaii, Guam and Saipan as one of the top ten banks in the country,” said Bob Harrison, First Hawaiian Bank chairman and chief executive officer. “Our performance is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees who make First Hawaiian the best bank for our customers.”

Forbes ranks the 100 largest U.S. banks and thrifts based on 10 metrics that measure a bank’s growth, profitability, capital adequacy and asset quality.
