Dimensional Fund Advisors/

We use a variety of different investment tools and strategies—among the best in the world, as a matter of fact. This includes the renowned Dimensional Fund Advisors (a.k.a. DFA).

Unlike traditional index strategies, Dimensional uses data-driven models pioneered by Nobel laureates to beat traditional benchmarks like the S&P 500. In fact, over the past 15 years, almost 90% of Dimensional’s stock and bond strategies have topped their benchmarks, and Dimensional’s stock funds have outperformed 70% of peers. The secret? For more than 30 years, DFA has pursued the dimensions of higher expected returns through advanced portfolio design, management and trading. DFA’s enduring philosophy and deep working relationships with the academic community underpin the company’s approach to investing and form the foundation for their research.

Dimensional has received the highest grades in customer loyalty among mutual funds companies. It’s no wonder ASI has been selected to be a trusted Dimensional advisor for Personal Wealth Management clients and businesses alike.
