Portfolios managed by TruePath Financial Planning primarily utilize Dimensional Funds, also known as DFA. DFA funds target precise slices of the market and have low costs. Rather than trying to pick individual stocks, DFA funds take an approach much like index funds. DFA funds really shine in the areas of value, small cap, and international investing. DFA has been a pioneer in a number of areas including developing some of the earliest smallcap funds in the US, international, and emerging markets.
