DFA does not offer funds directly to individual investors. Instead, choose to make their funds available through a select group of fee-only advisors. Investment success begins with a properly diversified portfolio. Constructing such a portfolio is a complicated process that can benefit from the guidance of a qualified, professional advisor. In their view, independent advisors free from the conflicts associated with commission-based transactions are best positioned to assist individual investors in developing long-term investment solutions.
