How do you beat the market? Investors through the ages have tried to answer this question by trying to do the impossible: predict the future. Whether it be market timing or stock picking, however, these methods have most commonly led to failure.
That's why Dimensional Fund Advisors does things differently. Knowing that the future is unpredictable and even the shrewdest forecasts can fail, they choose instead to stick to the things we do know and can be certain about, so you can focus on what's most important.
Dimensional Investing is about providing a successful investment experience. That means more than just returns. It means offering peace of mind, and a transparent approach backed by decades of research. Markets go up and they go down. The goal of Dimensional Investing is to help people be prepared, so they can stick with their plan.
Dimensional is a global investment firm that has been serving investors for more than 35 years.
A strong belief in the power of markets frees Dimensional to think differently about investing. Their view of markets is a clear contrast to many other investment managers who attempt to forecast where the markets are going, or find "mispriced" securities.
Since its beginning, Dimensional has been shaped by leading academics and their research. Dimensional is proud of its tradition of implementing groundbreaking research guided by a pursuit of truth.
Dimensional uses the market as a starting point and builds from there. Drawing insights from their own research and the academic community, Dimensional emphasizes areas of the market with higher expected returns and adds value through implementation.
Academic giants such as Eugene Fama and Kenneth French have been instrumental in shaping the scientific framework that drives the firm's investment process.
Many mutual funds disappear each year. Funds that didn't survive likely failed to meet a client need, didn't deliver results, or both. Dimensional has never had to abandon a fund.
