Dimensional Reduces Management Fees

Dimensional is pleased to announce a reduction in management fees for 14 of the Dimensional Wholesale Trusts, effective 2 March 2020. The reduction in management fees applies to more than half of the assets invested in the Dimensional Wholesale Trusts.

Australian CEO Glenn Crane said, “We evaluate the management fees for our trusts on a regular basis and when appropriate, we make adjustments.”

The fee reductions apply across many of Dimensional’s most widely held Trusts, including the Core Equity, World Allocation, Sustainability and Large Company Trusts.

As a systematic active manager, Dimensional is among the most competitively priced managers in the Australian market and even prior to these latest changes was ranked by third party researchers as in the bottom quartile for fees across most fund categories it offers.

“We expect to do better than benchmarks and peers, after fees, so we fight for every basis point,” noted Gerard O’Reilly, Global Co-CEO and CIO of Dimensional. “We continue to gain insights from research and innovate across all aspects of our process.”

The following reduction in management fees will be effective on 2 March 2020:
