NZD classes of units are measured in New Zealand dollars. All other unit classes are measured in Australian Dollars.
Performance shown represents past performance and is not indicative of future performance. Returns for periods shorter than one year are not annualised. Returns are net of fees and costs and assume income is reinvested and are gross of tax. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's units, when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost. Trusts are not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. A reference index has been provided for comparison purposes only and is not intended to represent the current or targeted asset allocation. Trust performance may differ significantly from the reference index. An index is not available for direct purchase.
From 28 October 2009, the Emerging Markets Trust changed its investment objective and strategy from purchasing securities of large companies, to purchasing securities of value companies on a market-wide basis. Data for periods prior to the transition date are for the large cap strategy.
Where applicable, the Transaction Costs Allowance is paid to the trust and is not a fee paid to Dimensional. Section 6 of the Product Disclosure Statement contains further information on fees and costs.

Important: The “Periodic Growth and Distribution Summary” document made available for download on this webpage from 25 July 2017 until 28 September 2017 incorrectly showed the Since Inception performance data as at 30 June 2017 for the Dimensional World Equity Trust as being the same as the 3 year performance data, when it was in fact higher. The document also incorrectly showed 1 year performance data as at 30 June 2017 for the Dimensional Global Sustainability Trust Unhedged Class as being the same as for the AUD Hedged Class, when it was in fact lower. We discovered the discrepancy and then promptly corrected the data in the “Periodic Growth and Distribution Summary” document on 30 September 2017. Please contact Dimensional if you have any questions, using the details provided in the Contact Us link at the bottom of this page.
