The importance of family among Hispanics has a strong influence on their decisions about money, with the need to care for family members playing a major role in their actions. But they’re hungry for more knowledge about how to handle their finances, with almost half (45 percent) saying that no one ever taught them about saving and investing. In comparison, 31 percent of U.S. investors overall say they were never taught about money that way. 

The results of a Wells Fargo survey reveal other cultural differences in attitudes about money in the Hispanic community. Their family orientation can be seen in their responses to numerous questions; for instance, 55 percent agree that “raising and investing in kids is the best retirement plan.” Among the general U.S. population of investors, only 41 percent concur. In addition, 24 percent expect family members to help them survive financially during retirement, compared with only 13 percent of U.S. investors as a whole.
