About HFCU

Honolulu FCU - About HFCU

History and Background

Honolulu Federal Credit Union (HFCU) was chartered on December 3, 1936 as a financial cooperative for U.S. Federal Employees employed in Honolulu. It was the fifth credit union formed in what was then the Territory of Hawaii. Today, HFCU has more than 15,000 members with assets of over $231 million, served by 40 employees at four branches.

The credit union was chartered as a not-for-profit cooperative, owned and operated for the benefit of its members. While what a credit union does is similar to what a bank does (both make loans and accept deposits), it is why we do it and how we do it that make us different from banks. Credit unions are owned by their members, and any surplus above expenses belongs to its members. Credit unions are run by unpaid volunteers who serve on the Board of Directors and/or Supervisory Committees. The board, in turn, hires a staff to run the day-to-day operations. Credit unions do not have stockholders and are democratically run, meaning each member has only one vote. There are over 7,500 credit unions in America today.

HFCU is "Enriching Island Life." Our mission statement reflects this dedication: "We are committed to serve our members by providing quality services, products and education to help achieve their financial success."

The objective of HFCU is to provide high savings rates and low loan rates to our members.

In 2011, HFCU shares were $203.3 million and loans were $104.0 million. The credit union approved 2,122 loans totaling $21.2 million. The average return on all shares was 0.44% and the average rate on all loans was 5.44%. Net income was $997 thousand and capital remained a strong 10.72% of assets. This very high capital ratio helps to keep HFCU strong and your savings safe.
