CU in Hawaii to open branch in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (9/7/10)--Aloha Pacific FCU, Honolulu, is opening a branch in Las Vegas, according to local media reports. The credit union was lured to the area by tens of thousands of former Hawaiians in the state, said The Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sept. 2). On Nov. 1, Aloha Pacific will take over the lease for a branch location that Silver State Schools CU intends to close, Aloha Pacific CEO Wallace Watanabe told the newspaper. This will be the first time a Hawaii-based credit union opens an out-of-state branch, Aloha Pacific said. Aloha Pacific has $725 million in assets and is the third-largest credit union in the state. About 140,000 former Hawaiians live in the Las Vegas area, Watanabe said. Aloha Pacific intends to accept alumni of the University of Hawaii and other Hawaii groups at its Las Vegas branch.
