Risks of Investing

Investing entails risks, including possible loss of principal. There are special risk considerations associated with value strategy investing, international investing (including emerging markets), and small company investing. No assurances or guarantees are given regarding the performance of any investment. Returns, share price, and yield will fluctuate and redemption value may be more or less than original cost. Investments in the Dimensional funds are not insured or guaranteed by the US government or any other party.

Indexes

Comparative indexes are unmanaged and do not reflect the payment of advisory fees and other expenses associated with an investment in a fund. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Taxes

Mutual fund investors may receive taxable dividends and capital gains distributions. Your tax obligation may affect the after-tax returns realized from your investment. Please consult your tax advisor concerning your particular circumstances.
