A Different Approach to Investing
A strong belief in markets frees DFA to think differently about investing
At Dimensional, they believe the best way to invest is to identify differences in expected returns and balance the tradeoffs among competing premiums, diversification, and costs.
DFA seeks to add value by building portfolios that target higher expected returns in a cost-effective manner. Through a dynamic investment process that integrates research, portfolio design, portfolio management, and trading, DFA manages the tradeoffs that matter for performance—balancing competing premiums, diversification, and costs.
