“This week on the podcast, I have an extra special guest. Gerard O’Reilly is a double threat. He is the chief investment officer as well as the Co-CEO of Dimensional Funds. They are a factor giant, managing about $650 billion in total assets. This is really a masterclass in how to think about investing, how to be systematic, how to approach it from an evidence-based scientific basis, how to incorporate the best of academic research into your process.

One of the things that I found really interesting was the DFA focus on costs, convenience and customization. Not every giant investment firm takes that approach.”
