Central Pacific Bank
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. Their hard work and passion paid off in 1954 with the opening of Central Pacific Bank in Downtown Honolulu.
The founders strived to help local families and small businesses that the banking establishment ignored. CPB continues to be proud of its business banking services helping owners expand their operations, manage cash flow, and offer flexible financing. We invite small businesses to work with us to see how we make a positive difference in people’s lives, beyond banking.
On a personal level, CPB is the digital banking leader in the state and created Shaka Checking, Hawaii’s first and only free digital checking account giving customers access to all their account features and services from any connected device. Shaka has many breakthrough features including getting your direct deposit paycheck up to two days early, reimbursement of ATM fees, and access to our top-rated mobile apps.
