Just how good are DFA funds?

I've heard that they are the absolute best there is, and have there portfolio's selected by Princeton Nobel Prize Winners. If I can get a financial advisor with access to them, do you think it would be worth the additional fees?

AJ, here is a thread discussing DFA funds:

Do a search on "DFA funds" and you will find several other discussions of their value (real or perceived).

Numbers is hard.

Re: Just how good are DFA funds?

If you don't find what you need in the other threads, feel free to ask me any questions you need to. My firm uses DFA funds quite a bit (and I don't want your business) but I would be happy to help you with your questions.
