The US Targeted Value Portfolio is designed to achieve long-term capital appreciation. The portfolio uses a market capitalization weighted approach and generally purchases a broad and diverse group of readily marketable securities of US small and mid cap companies that Dimensional believes to be value stocks at the time of purchase. As of the date of the prospectus, Dimensional considers for investment companies whose market capitalizations are generally smaller than the 500th largest US company in the market universe. Securities are considered value stocks primarily because a company's shares have a high book value in relation to their market value. 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 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.

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.

Small Company Risk
Securities of small companies are often less liquid than those of large companies. As a result, small company stocks may fluctuate relatively more in price. In general, small companies are also more vulnerable than larger companies to adverse business or economic developments and they may have more limited resources.
