Dimensional Fund Advisors named #1 in Barron's 2022 Fund Family List
Congratulations to our long-time partner Dimensional Fund Advisors, named by Barron's as No. 1 "Best Fund Family of 2022". We have utilized Dimensional's mutual funds and ETFs as part of our Value Added IndexingTM strategy since our founding in 2005.
Barron’s has named Dimensional Fund Advisors No. 1 in the outlet’s “Best Fund Families of 2022” list. The rankings look at the one-year records of how each firm’s actively managed funds performed vs. peers, based on data from Refinitiv Lipper.
“Dimensional is known for its roots in academic research on factor investing, particularly involving value investing, and its tendency to favor smaller companies that are highly profitable,” the outlet noted. “As such, the firm sidestepped the meltdown in mega cap growth names and companies with few, if any, profits.”
Barron’s also commented on how Dimensional keeps close tabs on equity premiums through daily price information. The firm’s managers watch for buying opportunities when growth stocks fall into value territory, and they also rely on factors such as momentum to help determine if it’s time to buy.
Bryce Skaff, Co-Head of the firm’s Global Client Group, said. “We’ve taken a consistent approach to designing and managing investment portfolios for more than 40 years. We’ll continue to pursue long-term drivers of expected returns so we can work toward delivering reliable outcomes for our clients and investors.” Barron’s subscribers can read more about this year’s rankings and methodology here.
