We want to build deep, working relationships with advisors who share our desire to pursue better financial outcomes for their clients. We believe that client-focused advice and efficient, value-added access to the capital markets can be a successful combination for both advisors and their clients.

We have seen many advisors thrive with this approach by reorienting their business around the client experience. These firms focus on offering guidance to help investors think differently about investing so they may pursue long-term goals without the daily worry.



The Value of Advice

(02:56)

For more than 25 years, Dimensional has supported the global movement toward client-focused advice. We believe advisors can play a vital role in helping people pursue their financial and investment goals.

What helps make a great investor experience?
  • Being well prepared for the range of possible outcomes.
  • Having an investment philosophy you can stick with.
  • Tuning out the noise and focusing on what you can control.
  • Taking a long-term view of investing.
