LOREN DUNTON MEMORIAL AWARD


Loren Dunton 1918 -1997 From Loren’s leadership would come an educational institution, the College for Financial Planning, and the personal financial planning curricula now taught on over one hundred campuses. In 1969 Loren Dunton convened a group of financial professionals in Chicago and founded an industry of outstanding service and commitment. As the first editor of Financial Planning magazine, he helped to publicize an emerging profession, bringing various practitioners together to a common cause, sharing practice and marketing techniques and promoting ethical conduct. That respected magazine has continued, contributing to the profession for thirty years. Loren promoted the value of the financial advisor as a professional whose quest for knowledge should never cease. He authored seven books that have helped to shape the careers and services of financial advisors. Loren’s commitment to these principles was evidenced in the Institute for Consumer Financial Education that he nurtured for many years, and which earned a Presidential Citation for public service. It is in Loren’s tradition of recognizing the value of professional advice and service that the IARFC each year presents the Loren Dunton Memorial Award to persons who have made a significant contribution to the financial services profession and to the public.
