Asian Indians are optimistic about the American Dream while striving to balance multiple priorities


Financial security, owning a home, and the ability to retire at the desired age are the key components of the American Dream for Asian Indian families, according to the latest State of the American Family Study by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual). Asian Indian families have a positive outlook regarding their ability to focus on their financial needs but struggle to balance family and financial priorities.

The new study examines attitudes towards finances and financial planning of families living in the U.S., and finds around three-fourths (76 percent) of Asian Indian families surveyed believe in the idea that the American Dream still exists.
