This week, First Hawaiian Bank announced this week 2011 first quarter net income of $52.7 million, a 4.9% gain over the previous quarter and a 2.6% increase over the first quarter of 2010.

Total assets grew to $15.2 billion. The announcement was made yesterday by Don Horner, First Hawaiian Bank chairman and chief executive officer in a written statement following a quarterly earnings conference call.

“The bank experienced a respectable quarter and overall fundamentals remain solid,” Horner said. “We see continued progress in our state’s economy and are hopeful the impact of the March 11th tragedy in Japan will not be as severe as first predicted. A strong tourism sector is an important contributor to lead our economic recovery.”

During the quarter the bank launched the Japan-Hawaii Relief Fund to benefit the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11th. The bank raised $1,176,000 for the Japanese Red Cross Society.
