At Central Pacific Bank, we strive to always put the needs of our customers first. Having been nationally recognized for ensuring customer satisfaction, trust and confidence, we take pride in our commitment to providing customers with safe and secure financial services. We have been proud members of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) since our founding, providing a long legacy of strong protection for our customers and their asset.


Our legacy can be traced back nearly 70 years ago when Central Pacific Bank was founded by Japanese American veterans who served in the legendary 442nd Regimental Combat Team, 100th Infantry Battalion, and Military Intelligence Service. They refused to accept the social inequities immigrant families in Hawaii faced after World War II.


With their “Go for Broke” spirit, these young nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans) began meeting regularly under the banyan trees of Ala Moana Beach Park to pursue their vision of creating a bank that would serve all of Hawaii's people.


On February 15, 1954, their hard work and passion paid off with the opening of Central Pacific Bank in downtown Honolulu. Our founders strived to help local families and small businesses that the banking establishment ignored. Ever since, we’ve stood for inclusivity, opportunity, and doing the right thing.


We proudly carry on the mission of our forefathers to serve all of Hawaii's people with aloha. We continue to believe a rising tide lifts all boats. And we are committed to the financial health of our customers so that, together, we can build a stronger Hawaii. 


 Our values are more than just lofty words. They’re a part of our legacy.
