Financial Planning for Immigrant Families with Dr. Daniel Crosby



Like many Americans, Iván Watanabe is a descendant of immigrants. He was born to a Venezuelan mother and a Japanese father, with an extended family on both sides. 

With the majority of his maternal family forced to leave Venezuela and his father’s family still living in Japan, Iván’s family grants him a unique insight as a financial planner.

In this episode, Dr. Daniel Crosby interviews Iván on financial planning and finances for immigrant families. Iván shares his personal experiences and the insights he’s gained from two different cultures. Plus, he reveals the impact both have had on his personal decisions.

Dr. Crosby and Iván discuss:

  • The power of saving and the value of financial skills when moving countries
  • Conflicts between culture and innovation
  • The financial struggle of real estate assets as a landlord 
  • Ways culture influences financial decisions
  • And more!
