DFA Equity Allocation
Objective And StrategyObjective
Long-term capital appreciation.
The VA Equity Allocation Portfolio is a “fund of funds,” which means the Portfolio generally allocates its assets among other funds managed by the Advisor (the “Underlying Funds”), although it has the ability to invest directly in securities and derivatives. The Portfolio seeks to provide investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of global equity securities. The Portfolio pursues its investment objective by investing substantially all of its assets in the following Underlying Funds: VA U.S. Large Value Portfolio, VA U.S. Targeted Value Portfolio, U.S. Core Equity 1 Portfolio, VA International Value Portfolio, VA International Small Portfolio, International Core Equity Portfolio, Emerging Markets Core Equity Portfolio, DFA Real Estate Securities Portfolio (each a series of DFA Investment Dimensions Group Inc.) and U.S. Large Company Portfolio (a series of Dimensional Investment Group Inc.). Generally, the VA Equity Allocation Portfolio invests its assets in the Underlying Funds to gain exposure to equity securities with an allocation of approximately 55% to 75% of the Portfolio’s assets in U.S. equity securities, 0-10% in U.S. real estate securities, 20-35% in international developed markets equity securities, and 0-15% in emerging markets equity securities. Periodically, the Advisor will review the allocations for the Portfolio in each Underlying Fund and may adjust allocations to the Underlying Funds or may add or remove Underlying Funds in the Portfolio without notice to shareholders.
