The US Large Company Portfolio is a no-load mutual fund designed to approximate the total investment return of the S&P 500 Index. The Portfolio intends to invest in the stocks that comprise the S&P 500 Index in approximately the same proportions as they are represented in the Index. The S&P 500 Index is comprised of a broad and diverse group of stocks. Generally, these are the US stocks with the largest market capitalizations and, as a group they represent approximately 75% of the total market capitalization of all publicly traded US stocks. In seeking to approximate the total investment return of the S&P 500 Index, Dimensional may also adjust the representation of securities in the US Large Company Portfolio after considering such securities' characteristics and other factors Dimensional determines to be appropriate.

Effective August 1, 2013, the administrative fee payable by the Portfolio to the Advisor decreased from 0.05% to 0.035% of the Portfolioâ??s average daily net assets on an annualized basis. As a result, the Total Operating Expense Ratio listed has been adjusted to reflect this change to the administrative fee. In addition, effective August 1, 2013, the Advisor has contractually agreed to reduce the fee waiver expense limit from 0.10% to 0.08% of the Portfolioâ??s average daily net assets on an annualized basis. The Net Expense Ratio reflects this change in the fee waiver expense limit. The Amended and Restated Fee Waiver Agreement for the Portfolio will remain in effect through 2/28/2015. The Portfolioâ??s prospectus contains more information on fees and expenses.
