Fund Description

The DFA U.S. Targeted Value Portfolio Institutional Class (DFFVX) is a factor-based, or smart-beta, actively managed fund that seeks to grow investor capital over the long term. Using DFA’s proven fundamental and quantitative models, the fund invests in small- and mid-cap stocks that are true value stocks and holds them until they no longer fit the fund’s model. The fund equal-weights its holdings and sticks to rules-based indexing.

Given its smart-beta tilt, DFFVX makes for a great subcore position in a broader small- and mid-cap portfolio. The fund is managed by Dimensional Fund Advisors LP.
