"BMO is extremely proud to contribute to the growth of the Latino Leaders Index500, Powered by BMO and to continue our relationship with Latino Leaders Magazine," said Eduardo Tobon, Director, Economic Equity Advisory Group, BMO. "Expanding from 200 to 500 companies speaks volumes about how important and valuable Latino businesses are to the American economy. BMO is committed to supporting Latino businesses with access to capital, educational resources, and meaningful networking opportunities to help them make real financial progress."

"The Latino Leaders Index500, Powered by BMO is a great initiative that shows the muscle of Latino owned businesses all across the country. We are pleased with the support and partnership with BMO on this platform," said Jorge Ferraez, publisher and founder, Latino Leaders Magazine. "There's no other place to look for Latino owned businesses at a national level, and we see that these companies are thrilled to show their contribution to the largest economy in the world."

Latinos are the largest minority group in the United States, compromising 19 percent of the population, and drive over $3.2 trillion in economic output to the U.S. economy. BMO recognizes Latino business owners continue to face barriers to inclusion, which is why the bank promotes equal access to opportunities that enable growth for its customers, colleagues, and the communities it serves. As part of BMO EMpower 2.0, the bank's more than $40 billion community benefits plan, BMO is addressing these barriers and driving progress for Latino business owners with better access to capital, educational resources, and meaningful networking opportunities.
