Q: You mentioned in your newsletter that DFA Funds are significantly better performers then Vanguard Funds. So why you recommend in your column only Vanguard funds and ETFs without a word of better DFA funds?
A: Great question. It is relatively easy for me to make recommendations at Vanguard, Fidelity, Schwab and T. Rowe Price, but DFA funds are much more complex. They have several ways (and different funds) to manage value, small cap, international, global diversification, REITs and emerging markets. To recommend the best combination of DFA funds requires all lot of information about a client.
