How Quants at Dimensional Handle the Meme-Stock Craze

Dimensional Fund Advisors, which manages $637 billion, was one of the first firms to take seminal academic financial research off of the campus and put it to work in the real-world art of managing money. How does a head-in-the-books firm like that respond now that retail day traders are in the driver’s seat and the market action often feels like a frat party rather than a lecture hall? Wes Crill, the head of strategists at Dimensional, joined this week’s “What Goes Up” to talk about that as well as a variety of other market topics, such as the rotation back into growth from value and how to read the inflation tea leaves.
