Published 10/21/2016

The Wall Street Journal article “Making Billions With One Belief: The Markets Can’t Be Beat” by Jason Zweig features the story of Dimensional and how it invests.

According to the article, “Dimensional Fund Advisors LP, or DFA, is the sixth-largest mutual-fund manager, up from eighth a year ago, according to Morningstar Inc., adding nearly $2 billion in net assets per month at a time when investors are fleeing many other firms.”

Zweig goes on to describe the foundation of Dimensional’s philosophy: “DFA, whose founders and advisers include leading purveyors of efficient-market theory, is built on the bedrock belief that active management practiced by traditional stock pickers is futile, if not an absurdity.”
