The HAWAII Bankers association serves as the voice of Hawaii's banks by advocating for a viable and sustainable banking industry through collaboration with legislators, regulators and the local community we serve.

The Hawaii Bankers Association (HBA) membership is open to FDIC insured depository institutions doing business in Hawaii. Current members include banks, thrifts and a depository financial services company.

Hawaii's first bank was established in 1858 and over the many decades Hawaii financial institutions have played an important role in transforming Hawaii's economy by serving the needs of consumers and businesses.

HBA members will continue to offer innovative products/services and loans to consumers and businesses to fuel Hawaii's economic growth.


The Hawaii Bankers Association (HBA) is very pleased to once again support the Hawaii FoodBank.

This annual campaign generates much needed donations for our community, as the Hawaii Foodbank annually distributes 13 million pounds of food, feeding over 287,000 Hawaii residents.

Last year's results were record breaking so please support this campaign again this year by bringing donations of food or cash to any of the nearly 300 bank branches throughout the State of Hawaii.

This campaign starts on Monday, April 17, 2017 and will conclude on Wednesday, May 31, 2017.
