“Using an investment strategy built around the pioneering work of Nobel-Prize-winning economist Eugene Fama, DFA has delivered astounding results.” — Baron’s

“DFA sets the standard for investor stewardship, innovation, and application that other firms should live up to.” — Forbes

“It barely markets, makes no cold calls, turns away hundreds of advisors every year and won’t allow retail investors to buy its funds without the help of advisors. Yet the growth rate of Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) is the envy of every asset management company.” — Globe and Mail
