S2E38: Client-Centric Investing: A Conversation with Dave Butler from DFA

Evelyn Goh

Did you know that Dave Butler, Co-CEO of Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA), was a former professional basketball player? Standing at over two metres tall, how did he come to and stay in his role at DFA for the past 28 years, instead of pursuing his career in basketball?

In this week’s Money Wisdom episode, Dave recounts his journey in one of the biggest fund management companies in the world. With the wealth of knowledge he possesses, he shares his views on money and explains why he still believes that having a wealth adviser is essential for leading a peaceful life. You can find the video version of this podcast episode on YouTube here.
