Investment in Minority Interests May Offer Huge Potential for Wall Street

Even as Wall Street recovers from the financial crisis, it may be missing out of billions of dollars of potential investment from an untapped resource—minority investors.

“It’s a very untapped market with enormous potential,” says Dr. Tahira Hira, a professor of financial literature at Iowa State University and who conducted a survey on trends of minority investing.

“Like women—Hispanics, African-Americans and Asian-Americans all have financial needs and I think it’s easy to say they have not become a big player on Wall Street yet,” Hira adds.
