Emmalyn Shaw, Flourish managing partner and investment lead for the US, joined fintech and other financial services experts at the LendIt conference held in San Francisco earlier this month. Shaw moderated the panel “U.S. Hispanic Market: Growing Fast and Grossly Underserved,” and representatives of Flourish portfolio companies participated several other immersive sessions covering topics such as the latests advances in financial regulation, digital banking in the future, and alternative data for credit assessment, among others.
By 2060, it’s projected that 1 in every 3 individuals living in the United States will identify as Hispanic American—yet, while growing rapidly, the market is still extremely undeserved when it comes to financial services. This segment represents $1.3 trillion of spend, and is projected to reach $1.7 trillion by 2020. This panel discussion dives into how fintech innovations can work to change services available to help empower the hispanic community to prosper—and, how we can better serve them.
