S2E34: Why Does Providend Work with Dimensional Fund Advisors?

At Providend, we’ve always advocated an evidence-based approach when investing your money and do not attempt to time the market. One might assume that, as long as you invest your money this way, you would be in good shape. However, another crucial piece of the puzzle is using the right instrument with the right investment manager. This was why Providend decided to work with Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) to enhance the investment experience for our clients.

In this week’s Money Wisdom episode, our Head of Investment, Chye Hsern, is joined by Dr. Marlena, Global Head of Investment Solutions at DFA, to delve deeper into the DFA approach to managing their funds, ultimately benefiting our clients who will have peace of mind in their investment journey.

While there may be other platforms or robo-advisers that offer DFA funds, here’s what sets us apart.

You can also read more about Chye Hsern’s thoughts on active investing that adds value to the client here.

Meanwhile, stay tuned for our next episode where we discuss how Providend guides our clients in financial crises!
