Dimensional Fund Advisors is a registered investment advisor headquartered in Santa Monica, California. Dimensional maintains regional sales offices in Chicago and Vancouver and sales and trading offices in Austin, London and Sydney.
As of 30 June 2008, the firm managed over $150 billion for over 450 institutional clients, including corporate, public, and Taft-Hartley retirement plans, endowments, and foundations; and clients of over 900 DFA approved registered investment advisors.
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.
