Message from the FP Canada Research Foundation™ Chair

I've dedicated my entire career to incorporating evidence and best practices into the work I do. As a lifelong proponent of evidence-based policies and procedures, it's no surprise that I was eager to take the opportunity to serve on the FP Canada Research Foundation Board as an extension of that mission.

While there is considerable research available regarding investing strategies and various other elements of personal finance, there has been relatively little time and energy dedicated to financial planning research-what planners do and do not do and what does and does not work. Thanks to the FP Canada Research Foundation, that is beginning to change. Canadians deserve and desperately need good financial planning research and it is critical that both financial planners and consumers have access to independent, unbiased research to help in making good decisions.

The FP Canada Research Foundation is committed to funding, promoting and disseminating groundbreaking research that can be readily applied. This includes technical research that tests financial planning strategies and challenges existing models to ensure Canadians are getting the best advice to suit their unique circumstances, but also research into behavioural considerations and the impact of financial planning on society. It is an exceedingly worthy and honourable cause that I am proud to be associated with.
