Request for Proposals: Impact of FinTech

The Foundation invites proposals from qualified researchers and
educators interested in developing a study on the possible
impacts of web-based financial planning collaboration tools
(such as financial planning-related questionnaires or calculators)
on consumers' inclination to seek financial planning advice.

Research Update:
Financial Stress and Self-Efficacy

Using data from the Financial Planning Standards Council's
Value of Financial Planning longitudinal survey, this project
has studied how financial stress and self-efficacy
predict a person's likelihood to seek professional financial help.
A brochure outlining the results of this study can be found here.
