Dimensional Fund Advisors
"Dimensional Investing is about implementing the great ideas in finance for our clients."
Dimensional is a new kind of investment firm. Because they have confidence in the capital markets, they think differently about investing and push the frontiers of innovation. Over the years, they have translated financial science into real world investment solutions, and through their revolutionary approach, investors may seek to capture what the market offers in all its dimensions.
Working years ahead of the industry, Dimensional forged a new way to invest. The firm inaugurated its strategies in 1981 with early research into the stronger performance of small cap stocks. Later, a comprehensive analysis of stock prices worldwide deepened the strategy repertoire and set a new standard for portfolio design. This evolution reflects an abiding belief in financial science and the efficacy of capital markets.
They see markets as an ally, not an adversary. Rather than trying to take advantage of the ways markets are mistaken, they take advantage of the ways markets are right—the ways they compensate investors. The firm designs portfolios to help their investors capture what the market offers in all its dimensions.
Dimensional Fund Advisors use a broad range of strategies around the world and has $617 Billion (CDN) in firmwide assets under management.
Dimensional is owned primarily by employees and directors, and manages assets exclusively for institutional investors and the clients of registered financial advisors. From offices in Austin, Santa Monica, London, Sydney, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Vancouver their professional staff supervise portfolios and services clients twenty-four hours a day.
Dimensional Fund Advisors Canada is a Canadian portfolio management company registered in British Columbia since 2003. The firm currently offers eight strategies to investors in the Canadian market. Dimensional Canada is the manager, trustee, principal portfolio advisor, and promoter of the funds, while Dimensional Fund Advisors acts as sub-advisor for each of the funds.
"Dimensional" refers to the Dimensional worldwide group of companies, rather than to one particular entity. These companies are Dimensional Fund Advisors, Dimensional Fund Advisors Canada ULC, DFA Australia Limited, and Dimensional Fund Advisors Ltd.
