The state's largest banks snagged some of the top national rankings in a poll of bank performance released last week.
Bank of Hawaii retained the top performance ranking from 2011 among publicly traded banks worth $10 billion or more. The company listed its assets just over $13.8 billion.
BancWest, the parent company of First Hawaiian Bank, was ranked number two for private and foreign-owned banks with assets of more than $10 billion. The company has assets listed over $78 billion.
The ranking was compiled by the American Bankers Association Banking Journal comparing how much profit a company generates from invested money during 2011. It looked at 61 public banks, thrifts, and holding companies, and 18 private institutions.
