Dimensional Fund Advisors, a global leader in systematic investing, was recently honored at the 2023 ETF.com Awards, winning ETF Issuer of the Year and Best New Active ETF (for Dimensional US Small Cap Value ETF—DFSV) at the awards gala in New York City.

The ETF.com Awards honor the most influential, innovative, and impactful players in the exchange-traded-fund space. Winners are selected through a three-part process based on the insights and opinions of leaders throughout the ETF industry.

In less than three years since launching its first ETF, Dimensional has established 30 funds across equity, fixed income, and real estate strategies. Combined, these funds hold approximately $85 billion in assets under management (as of April 30, 2023, Morningstar), making the firm the largest active ETF issuer in the industry by AUM (as of April 30, 2023, Morningstar) and adding to its long-standing mutual fund and separately managed account businesses.

Further statistics about Dimensional’s growing ETF suite include:

  • Eighth-largest global ETF issuer across both active and passive managers (as of May 15, 2023, Morningstar)
  • More than $10 billion in year-to-date net flows (as of May 15, 2023, Morningstar)
  • Highest net flows of any active issuer in 2022, with over $26 billion in net new assets (as of May 15, 2023, Morningstar)

“We remain committed to meeting the needs of both new and existing advisor relationships by offering industry-leading, systematic active ETFs at a competitive price,” said Dave Butler, Co-CEO of Dimensional. “We look forward to continuing to build on our ETF offering in service of our clients.”

Risks include loss of principal and fluctuating value. Investment value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. Small cap investments are subject to greater volatility than those in other asset categories.

ETFs trade like stocks, fluctuate in market value, and may trade either at a premium or discount to their net asset value. ETF shares trade at market price and are not individually redeemable with the issuing fund, other than in large share amounts called creation units. ETFs are subject to risk similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short-selling and margin account maintenance. Brokerage commissions and expenses will reduce returns.
