The article highlights a Latino immigrant focused think tank sponsored by the National Endowment for Financial Education in Denver, Colorado from November 29 through December 1, 2005. While the media in the United States has focused on the buying power of the Latino community, thought to be about $686 billion, the relatively low net worth of Latinos in the United States has been ignored. Problems are addressed concerning the financial service needs of Latino immigrants. Financial education and investment products geared towards Latinos are discussed.
