The US Large Cap Value Portfolio is a no-load mutual fund designed to achieve long-term capital appreciation. The Portfolio is a feeder portfolio and pursues its objective by investing substantially all of its assets in its corresponding Master Fund, The US Large Cap Value Series. The Master Fund, using a market capitalization weighted approach, purchases a broad and diverse group of readily marketable securities of large US companies Dimensional determines to be value stocks at the time of purchase. The portfolio 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. Dimensional may modify market capitalization weights and even exclude companies after considering such factors as free float, momentum, trading strategies, liquidity management, and expected profitability. In assessing expected profitability, Dimensional may consider different ratios, such as that of earnings or profits from operations relative to book value or assets. The market universe is comprised of companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange, NYSE MKT LLC, Nasdaq Global Market® or such other securities exchanges deemed appropriate by Dimensional. Securities are considered value stocks primarily because a company's shares have a high book value in relation to their market value (BtM).

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.
