MIAMI (JAN. 31, 2023) — Today, the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation®, in partnership with JPMorgan Chase, kicked off its first Educación Financiera financial health education workshops as part of the Latin GRAMMY® Master Series. Through live and virtual sessions, high school seniors and college students, including emerging musicians, will have access to money and credit management information and resources— and expert advice from financial leaders, music executives and creators. The first event was hosted in Miami with more than 500 students in attendance.

Special guests, Latin GRAMMY®, GRAMMY®, and Emmy-winning producer, director, musician and entrepreneur, Emilio Estefan Jr. and Latin GRAMMY and GRAMMY-winning producer, entrepreneur, founder and CEO of Loud And Live, Nelson Albareda kicked off the first workshop, “Essentials of Building Credit in the Music Arts Industry”. JPMorgan Chase representatives discussed the importance of building credit to help jumpstart financial wellness. Together the special guests, along with the Foundation and JPMorgan Chase, share the goal of inspiring students to create and cultivate innovative ideas that will help advance their creative pursuits and financial wellbeing.

“Empowering Hispanic and Latino students with financial education tools is key to building a stronger future for our communities,” said Silvana Montenegro, Global Head of Advancing Hispanics & Latinos at JPMorgan Chase. “That’s why we are thrilled to support the Foundation via the Latin GRAMMY Master Series to provide the resources and knowledge that our students need to succeed and plan for their future; because their musical dreams shouldn’t come at the expense of their financial wellbeing.”

“Financial literacy is an essential component of art and music education and often takes a back seat to the more creative elements,” said Raquel “Rocky” Egusquiza, Executive Director of the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation. “Together with JPMorgan Chase, we have designed the Educación Financiera series to promote conversations and provide resources that enable and strengthen Latin music creators and professionals in the industry along with their families to take charge of their money and future.”


Throughout the year, the Foundation and JPMorgan Chase will host two additional workshops for students, as well as two special virtual sessions for parents, to learn more about financial health topics. Through this series with JPMorgan Chase, the Foundation will continue supporting students with the tools to improve their financial knowledge with confidence and establish financial wellness. This collaboration is part of the ongoing efforts led by JPMorgan Chase to drive inclusive economic growth and close the racial wealth gap for Hispanic, Latino and unbanked and underbanked communities.
