FPA-backed academic journal announces awards
The Financial Planning Research Journal, published by Griffith University on behalf of the Financial Planning Association of Australia, has revealed three new research awards and winners for the 2018-19 year.
The awards are part of ongoing initiatives by the journal to provide an academic platform to discuss issues around personal financial planning and wealth management, changes in the financial planning industry and the notion of professionalism in personal finance within Australia, according to a statement.
Dr Michelle Cull from Western Sydney University was the recipient of the “Early Career Researcher Award”, recognising a researcher who completed their dissertation within the past five years and has made outstanding contributions to research in financial planning in Australia.
Dr Cull was also announced as the recipient of the “Conference Travel Award”, where she will travel to and present at the Academy of Financial Services (AFS) and the Financial Planning Association Conference in Minneapolis, US in October.
She will also participate along with winners from the Journal of Financial Planning and the Financial Services Review, the academic journal of the AFS, in presentations to over 2,000 financial planners as well as hundreds of academics.
The “Best Paper Award” was won by Robert J Bianchi, Michael E Drew and Adam N Walk (2016) for their paper “The Time Diversification Puzzle: A Survey” in Financial Planning Research Journal, Volume 2, Issue 2.
