Homeowners all across Hawaii are saying, "Thanks equity"
because they're tapping into their home's equity
to pay for things that really matter to them.
What will you "thank your home equity" for?

  • Thanks home equity

    for helping us go green!
    With a home equity line, you can easily manage expenses by borrowing only what you need at the time you need it. If you're installing a photovoltaic system, or building an extension, a home equity line can help.
  • Thanks home equity

    for my dream kitchen.
    You have the power to borrow against your line when you need to, and control how quickly you repay. Equity line checks can make payments easy. Equity lines can provide immediate cash for the expected - like a dream kitchen - or the unexpected.
  • Thanks home equity

    for helping us pay for college.
    Home equity lines offer lower interest rates than most credit cards, making large tuition payments more manageable.
  • Thanks home equity

    for consolidating my debt so I can rest easy.
    Instead of paying multiple bills with various interest rates, consolidate debt by using a home equity line. You'll make just one payment and take advantage of the lower intrest rate that a home equity line offers over conventional loans and credit cards.

"Thanks home equity"
for these great benefits!

Convenient access to funds

Borrow only what you need, when you need it using e-Bankoh®, Bankoh by Phone, or a Bankoh Home EquityLine check. Our mobile banking app makes it especially easy to access your line and transfer funds.

Option to fix your rate

This feature provides you additional budgeting power, with the peace of mind that comes from a fixed rate.

Easy to manage repayment

Enjoy low monthly payments during the 10-year draw period. Then you'll have 15 years to fully repay the balance, or pay off sooner if you choose.

Added buying power - Fixed Rate Loan Option

You won't find this feature everywhere. A Bankoh Home EquityLine comes with the option to lock in all or a portion of your line at a fixed rate by selecting a Fixed Rate Loan Option. So you keep all the flexibility of a line, but with the added benefit of predictable monthly payments.

America's Best Banks

For the sixth straight year, Forbes Magazine has named Bank of Hawaii one of "America’s Best Banks." (Forbes Magazine, Dec. 22, 2014 online edition).

"Thanks home equity"
for helping me save money.

Our Bankoh Home EquityLine helps keep dollars in your wallet since the interest you pay may be tax deductible (please consult your tax advisor to learn more). In addition, our interest rates are typically lower than most credit cards and conventional loans, so using your line to consolidate your bills may also result in savings.
