How one is granted permission to sell DFA funds.

I ran across this article Blaine Lourd Profile - Executive Articles - Print - Portfolio.com
at Scott Burn's AssetBuilder Inc. - Registered Investment Advisor site, and thought others might find it interesting.

I've been to the DFA boot camp.

I learned more about investments in 2 days than I did in 4 years of college studying finance.

Enough that I'm willing to trust many millions of dollars of our client's assets with them. (and much of my own too)

A lot of investors are chomping at the bit for DFA funds. I'm waiting for Vanguard to clone them.

Don't hold you breath

A lot of the benefit from DFA funds comes from the implementation which wouldn't scale well to a Vanguard. (the markets just aren't big enough) That being said, Vanguard gives you a good bit of the benefits of Dimensional.

In addition, Vanguard's index funds must stick strictly to their index. DFA funds aren't tied to an index.
