Dimensional Fund Advisors ~ Where Investing & Academic Research Meet
Commencement Financial Planning LLC is proud to be one of a select group of Registered Investment Advisors who are able to provide their clients access to Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) mutual funds. DFA adheres to investing principals and processes based on decades of academic research and eschews any sort of speculation.
The philosophy and processes of DFA are rooted in acedemic work of Nobel Laureate Prof. Eugene Fama & Prof. Kenneth French as well as other highly esteemed finance academics such as Harry Markowitz, William Sharpe, Robert Merton, Merton Miller, Paul Samuelson, and Myron Scholes. Since its founding in 1981, DFA has continued to be guided by a group of leading scientists, professors, and nobel laureates; and adjust their processes as academic research sheds new light on the science of investing.
If you would like to discover whether the inclusion of DFA Funds might be appropriate for your portfolio, please feel free to contact Troy to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation initial consultation.
