Retirement savings for those in the Latino community are low. According to a 2018 UnidosUS report, only 31% of Latino workers participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, compared to 48% of all other workers ages 21 to 64. According to a CNBC story, 54% of Latinos work for an employer that offers a retirement plan compared to nearly 70% for all other workers in the same category. My guest today has devoted his career to service the Hispanic community and will tell us how advisors can help address those gaps.
