Middletown, OH (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
The Journal (JPF) contains both normative and empirical research on topics including household portfolio choice, retirement planning and income distribution, individual financial decision making, household risk management, life cycle consumption and asset allocation, investment research relevant to individual portfolios, household credit use, professional financial advice and its regulation, behavioral factors related to financial decisions, financial education and literacy, and other topics that are of interest to scholars and practitioners in the field of personal finance.
The IARFC encourages practicing readers to give copies of the JPF to their associates from the fields of law and tax accounting from whom one referral can bring great rewards for the time spent. “Reading the JPF is a far more taxing exercise for the practitioner whose time is pressed,” comments IARFC Chairman and CEO Ed Morrow, “but it is essential to the continuing education responsibility."
This issue represents the final edition from departing editor Michael S. Finke, Texas Tech University. “One of the most interesting subjects in personal finance is how individual investors deal with a loss,” says Finke. “This issue contains two groundbreaking articles that provide new insight into how investors respond to volatility in investment accounts and how best to present risky investment choices.”
The IARFC is appreciative of Michael Finke’s dedication to the IARFC and his involvement in publication of the JPF for the past three years. New editors are Wade Pfau, National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies and Joe Tomlinson, Tomlinson Financial Planning. “I am grateful to new editors for agreeing to chart the JPF’s course in the future,” says Finke. “I also look forward to the innovative research being published in the JPF later in 2014 under their guidance.”
The JPF encourages submission of manuscripts in topics related to household financial decision making. More information regarding the Journal of Personal Finance can be found by visiting the website http://www.journalofpersonalfinance.com or by contacting Wendy Kennedy at wendy(at)iarfc(dot)org.
