Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA), overall, offers some excellent, low-cost mutual funds. The firm is known for applying academic research to its investment strategy. The funds are index-like, meaning they follow broad asset classes without individual stock picking. They do not, however, follow well know indexes like S&P or Russell. One limitation is that their funds can only be bought or sold through financial advisors that have been approved to work with DFA. I’ve been working with DFA funds for about 9 years.
