Dimensional Fund Advisors has developed a great presentation on the markets and investing. Check out their multi-part series on what investors should consider as they move forward. The videos include an examination of capital markets, the effects of recession and government policy on stock prices, how the current market stacks up to previous downturns, and the reasons why Dimensional’s core beliefs have not changed in light of these events.
Following a fiduciary standard is entirely different than how most so-called “financial advisors” work today. More than 90 percent of financial advisors are paid (fully or partially) by commissions; this means that they have incentives to promote products and services that maximize their income. Also, these other advisors often work for large financial services firms, known as Broker-Dealers. The loyalty of these advisors is to their employer, not their client.
