As an independent advisory firm, Cypress is not beholden to any firm’s investment products. Thus we select funds from any fund family that we believe offer the best investment option for our clients. And most often, Dimensional is that best option. Dimmensional relies on emperical evidence and decades of academic, peer-reviewed research to build and manage their funds. With some of the brightest minds in finance leading the way, DFA identifies the primary sources of return in the market, and seeks to capture such returns in the most efficient (low-costs, low taxes) way possible.
