Dimensional Fund Advisors moved into the top 10 of Mutual Fund Families due its strong inflows from investors over the last 18 months, but also because of its lack of outflows during the market downturn from 2008-2009. As you know, we use DFA almost exclusively in our clients’ portfolios. To see why, click here.
DFA’s inclusion is noteworthy because it’s the only group in the top 10 that is marketed almost exclusively by fee-only advisors. It has no commercials or slick ads in Magazines, and since its funds have $2 million minimums, it doesn’t show up on any fund lists…except this one!
