For those who may be curious,  'Aikapa (in modern usage) is a Hawaiian word that elegantly combines the concepts of friendship and wealth.

At Aikapa it symbolizes both the privilege and commitment of our firm to provide clients and our community with (fiduciary standard) financial advice that is product neutral and aligned with your goals.
