Financial literacy among U.S. Hispanics is lower, on average, than the general population. Numerous factors are contributing to the gap, such as youth, language barriers, lower income, and fewer assets. As a consequence, many Hispanics have a limited understanding of personal finance and how to build wealth, especially among Spanish dominant consumers. 

In this week’s episode of The New Mainstream podcast, we sit down with Francisco Javier Arceo, Founder and CEO of Unidos, to discuss financial literacy in Latino communities and how technology can make personal finance simple and accessible to Hispanic consumers.
