Booth Pushes Back Against the Latest Fads

A fundster bigwig is reiterating his investment philosophy while warning investors against "falling into the same old traps."

David G. Booth
Dimensional Fund Advisors
Executive Chairman, Co-Founder
In a guest column yesterday for MarketWatch, DFA [profile] executive chairman David Booth shares his concerns about about investing fads (like Redditors piling piling into Gamestop's stock). He also offers reminders that fundsters may find familiar: about the power of diversification, the importance of a long-term investment time-horizon, the uncertainty of stock market returns, and the benefits of working with financial advisors. The piece also serves as a reminder of DFA's quantitative, quasi-indexing approach to asset management (and of the firm's connections with several Nobel laureates in economics.)

"Discipline applied over a lifetime can have a powerful impact," Booth concludes.
