Tuesday, April 23, 2013

HONOLULU, HAWAII – For the third consecutive year, ABA Banking Journal, a monthly national trade publication, has named Bank of Hawaii as one of the nation’s top performing banks among the largest public and private banks and thrifts (those with assets of $10 billion or more). The rankings were published in the magazine’s April 2013 edition. Bank of Hawaii has been annually ranked among the top 10 performing banks in the country since 2007.

Peter Ho, Bank of Hawaii chairman, president and CEO, said, “We continually strive to be the best bank for our shareholders, customers, employees and community, and we’re pleased to be recognized by ABA for a third consecutive year. These results are a testament to the hard work of our employees in meeting the needs of our clients.”

ABA partnered with Capital Performance Group to determine the rankings based on return on average total equity obtained from end-of-year Securities and Exchange Commission filings as of Dec. 31, 2012 provided by Thompson Reuters, LLC.

Bank of Hawaii has also been rated by Forbes Magazine as one of the country’s top performers for the past four years, naming it #1 for 2009 and 2010, and #2 for 2011 and 2012.
