The award winners were recognized and their papers presented earlier this month during the Center's inaugural 2017 Academic Research Colloquium for Financial Planning and Related Disciplines in Arlington, Va.
The Best Paper series of awards recognized authors from a variety of disciplines and sub-disciplines that relate to financial planning. The award carried a $2,500 cash prize for the author(s) of each winning paper. A full list of accepted papers is available here.
"The quality of papers submitted for this first Academic Research Colloquium was very high, making for difficult decisions during the double-blind review process," said Dr. Charles Chaffin, the Center's Director of Academic Home. "We are grateful to each author who submitted a paper and are happy to recognize the high level of scholarship that is represented in each of the five papers that were recognized with a Best Paper Award."
The Colloquium gathered the global academic community to showcase rigorous and relevant research within financial planning and related disciplines that directly or indirectly relates to the global financial planning practice and the body of knowledge. The CFP Board Center for Financial Planning hosted the Colloquium in collaboration with the Canadian-based Financial Planning Standards Council and the Financial Planning Standards Board Ltd., owner of the international CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER certification program outside the United States.
The next Colloquium will be held at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Va. on February 20-22, 2018.
