NEW provides fundamental financial education through its NEW Money program (formerly known as the Smart Consumer program.)
Americans rely on financial products to help them build financial security for themselves and their families. A significant number of Latino households, however, do not hold even basic financial assets such as checking accounts, nor do they hold high-return assets, such as stocks and business equity. Since Latinos are the largest minority group in the country, projected to make up nearly one quarter of the U.S. population by the year 2050, the savings and investment habits of Latino households have become a source of concern. Gaining financial knowledge is critical for families who want to move into the American middle class.
