DFCF Fund Description
DFCF seeks income and capital appreciation from a broad, actively managed portfolio of global investment-grade fixed income securities.
DFCF Factset Analytics Insight
DFCF rounds out Dimensional’s fixed income ETFs suite with its core offering. The actively managed fund includes investment-grade obligations issued or guaranteed by the US and foreign governments, their agencies and instrumentalities, including mortgage-backed securities, corporate debts, bank loans, commercial paper, and money market funds. The fund’s strategy attempts to capture both expected credit and expected term premiums—that is return on investment for holding obligations considered to have greater credit risk and longer-term maturities. The fund may invest in fixed income securities of varying maturities while trying to maintain a weighted average duration as its benchmark—Bloomberg US Aggregate Bond Index. Additionally, the fund uses derivatives such as swaps and futures contracts to hedge against shifts in interest rates, credit quality, and currency exchange rates.
