Dr. Craig Lemoine, MRFC®

The Journal and IARFC have long been an opportunity to advance the financial planning profession. I am excited to begin working with our outstanding editors and encourage high-quality submissions...Dr. Craig Lemoine.

Dr. Lemoine is currently the Director of the Financial Planning Program at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign where he serves as an Associate Clinical Professor; teaching courses in risk management, retirement, and financial planning.

Craig also serves as the Executive Director of the Academy for Home Equity in Financial Planning. The Academy studies the role of home equity in consumer retirement decisions. As well as teaching courses at the University of Illinois, Craig is working with a team of experts to create a financial planning certification focusing on professionals who work with agribusiness and farming clients.

As far as the Journal is concerned, he is working with Dr. Cummings and the IARFC Home Office for a seamless transfer of responsibilities. One of the first areas of concentration will be on the Journal’s Editorial Board. These peer reviewers are instrumental in reviewing the articles, recommending acceptance, suggesting changes, and/or rejecting submissions. He will be looking for additional qualified academicians from diverse backgrounds to join the Board. Another goal is to broaden the reach of the Journal. As one of the highly rated financial academic publications, he will look for different avenues of visibility, thus increasing the national awareness of the Journal and its writers.

“I am honored to serve as the incoming editor for the Journal of Personal Finance,” commented Dr. Lemoine. “The Journal and IARFC have long been an opportunity to advance the financial planning profession. I am excited to begin working with our outstanding editors and encourage high-quality submissions. We continue to see the financial services industry transform into a profession. The role of academic literature in this transformation is paramount. I thank the IARFC for this opportunity to work together.”
