The US Social Core Equity 2 Portfolio is a no-load mutual fund designed to achieve long-term capital appreciation. The portfolio seeks to purchase a broad and diverse range of securities of US companies with an increased exposure to small cap companies and those Dimensional considers to be value companies, relative to the US market universe, while excluding companies based on the portfolio's social screens. The portfolio’s percentage allocation to all securities as compared to their representation in the US universe may be modified after considering factors such 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 US 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. An equity issuer is considered a growth company primarily because it has a low, non-negative book value in relation to its market capitalization. An equity issuer is considered a value company primarily because it has a high book value in relation to its market capitalization.

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.

Social Investment Risk
Social issue screens may limit the number of investment opportunities available; and as a result, at times, investors may experience more modest gains than when investing in a fund not subject to such special investment conditions.
