The US Large Cap Equity Portfolio is a no-load mutual fund designed to achieve long-term capital appreciation. The portfolio seeks to purchase a broad and diverse group of securities of US companies Dimensional considers to be large capitalization within the US universe. Dimensional generally defines the universe as a free float-adjusted, market capitalization-weighted portfolio composed of US operating companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange, NYSE MKT LLC, Nasdaq Global Market®, or such other securities exchanges deemed appropriate by Dimensional. As of the date of the prospectus, the portfolio primarily invests in securities of US companies with market capitalizations within the largest 90% of the market universe or larger than the 1,000th-largest US company, whichever results in a higher market capitalization break. The US Large Cap Equity Portfolio may overweight securities of companies with low relative prices, higher expected profitability, and smaller market capitalizations relative to other large cap companies in the US universe.

Performance data shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Market Risk Even a long-term investment approach cannot guarantee a profit. Economic, political, and issuer-specific events will cause the value of securities, and the funds that own them, to rise or fall. Because the value of your investment in a fund will fluctuate, there is a risk that you will lose money.
Investment Strategy Risk Securities that have high valuation ratios and high expected profitability may perform differently from the market as a whole and an investment strategy purchasing these securities may cause the Portfolio to at times underperform equity funds that use other investment strategies.
