First Hawaiian Bank values our kupuna and has created "Kupuna Korner" for our PrimeTimeSM (Hawaii) and PrimeraSM (Guam/CNMI) programs in order to provide our members with a resource for health* and financial information.
Keep checking back since we'll continue to update Kupuna Korner in the months to come. And, you are always welcome to browse our archived articles for information you may have previously missed.
