Financial Planning Review Celebrates Successful First Year: this month marks the first birthday of Financial Planning Review, the Center’s peer-reviewed academic journal featuring research within financial planning and related disciplines.  FPR had more than 25,500 downloads between October 2018 and July 2019. With the 2020 launch of the Financial Planning Knowledge Center, readers will have the opportunity to access FPR-Dialogues – short videos that outline the implications of FPR papers specifically to practitioners. Through the Knowledge Center, FPR will serve both scholars and practitioners, providing a platform for rigorous inquiry respected across the academy and also delivering value to financial planning practice.
