Academic Financial Planning

Techniques, Strategies, and Research for Consumers, Educators, and Professional Financial Consultants.

The Journal of Personal Finance published by the IARFC is distinctive - being practitioner-oriented and an academic journal combined. The research-based articles examine the impact of financial issues on households as well as the practice and profession of financial planning. 

Initiated in 2002, the Journal has grown in scope, acceptance, and recognition among practitioners and academicians. For inclusion, the Journal welcomes articles from practicing financial professionals and consultants about financial products and services, client relationships, retirement planning, long-term care, practice management, and firm operation or efficiencies.
