Why Should You Diversify?

This short and compelling article reinforces the premise that "Investors can benefit from consistent exposure to both US and non-US equities." It examines "The Lost Decade," a period in which the S&P 500 recorded a total return of -9.1%. The article goes on to point out that while the S&P 500 was negative for this 10 year period, "conditions were more favorable for global equity investors as most equity asset classes outside the US generated positive returns over the course of the decade."

Two Recent Dimensional Fund Advisor Articles - The China Syndrome & Greece is the Word

Two recent articles, written by DFA Vice President Jim Parker, are both timely and compelling. The first article, entitled The China Syndrome, highlights the recent severe volatility in China's stock market, raising questions among many investors about the causes of the fall and the wider implications for the global economy and markets. The second article is entitled Greece is the Word.
