DBRS reviews Bank of Hawaii long-term issuer ratings, with positive implications

DBRS on Dec. 21 placed Honolulu-based Bank of Hawaii Corp.'s A (low) long-term issuer and senior debt ratings and its BBB (high) subordinated debt rating under review, with positive implications.

The same goes for the subsidiary Bank of Hawaii's A long-term issuer, deposits and senior debt ratings and its A (low) subordinated debt rating.

The review is being undertaken in light of DBRS' "additional comfort" with Bank of Hawaii Corp.'s underwriting and Hawaiian real estate exposure. The rating agency noted its underwriting had previously been considered a ratings constraint, but that the company's asset quality metrics are "pristine," its earnings power "solid" and the state's real estate values resilient even in times of stress.
