What are the philosophical beliefs of Dimension Fund Advisors (DFA)? What type of products
does DFA offer? How does DFA add value for its investors?
How is DFA’s business model related to the research of FAMA and French? Why do you think
small-cap stocks outperformed large-cap stocks historically? That is, do the better returns of
small-cap stocks reflect the compensation for extra risk or the correction in mispricing? In other
words, do you think small-cap stocks are riskier than large-cap stocks? Or small-cap stocks are
undervalued relative to large-cap stocks and such mispricing is corrected as time elapses?
Do you expect this pattern to continue?
