6 Sep Build Portfolio Solutions with Higher Returns: Dimensional Fund Advisors

In this AIAM-exclusive event, Dimensional Fund Advisors will focus on applying academic research to build portfolio solutions that pursue higher expected returns, bringing robust portfolios to clients.

  • “Dimensions” that explain expected returns in equity markets, and “factors” that don’t.
  • Why smart beta strategies may not be reliable.
  • Strategic exposure to a diverse set of “dimensions” may be more reliable than attempting to time premiums.
