Get the Latest Original Research on Investing by RPI and Journal of Financial Planning

The FPA Research and Practice Institute™ (RPI) has been engaging in original research on a wide array of subjects of importance to financial planners and the latest study is now available. The 2015 Trends in Investing Survey, done in collaboration with the Journal of Financial Planning, looks at how financial planners are using and recommending different investment vehicles today and where they will look to invest over the coming year. The survey, which has been conducted regularly since 2006, revealed that Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) have supplanted mutual funds as the preferred investment vehicle by planners.

And keep an eye out for more research coming out later this year, including a social media study that was conducted in partnership with LinkedIn and a Social Security study that is being done with AARP and CNBC.
