We are excited to partner with Hispanicize LA to both connect with this growing audience, and to offer interactive tools that help more people access to the information they need to meet their most important financial goals.”

As the Hispanicize LA program approaches, Prudential continues to work with its Latinx digital influencer team to produce ongoing content and videos relating to financial wellness and ideas for entrepreneurs and consumers to better understand opportunities for wealth building and long-term savings. The brand will present a top panel session and other content during the 2018 LA event that aims at demystifying financial terms and building achievable goals.
