Socially Responsible Investments

Warner Brown Financial strongly believes that our desire for a return on investment (ROI) cannot be limited to financial returns; it is also the return on community, sustainability and the future that we all share. Healthy economies stimulate job creation, encourage infrastructure development and generate the returns necessary to improve living standards for everyone, everywhere. We owe this to our children’s’ children.

Evidence-based Investing

Our custom portfolios are driven by Nobel-Prize winning research, not hunches, stock picking, or a Wall Street crystal ball. We use best-in-class, low cost, tax-efficient ETFs and mutual funds to achieve global diversification across sectors, company sizes, and geography. You get:
  • A personal Investment Policy Statement that helps you remain focused on your long-term investing goals so you don’t panic when the market takes a downturn, or get over-zealous in a bubble.
  • Follow through on the entire investing process from account setup and transfer completion to performance and account reporting.
  • Professional portfolio management and custom portfolios to suit your specific needs.

Would you like to know how winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics invest? Look no further than Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA). DFA has been implementing the great ideas in academic finance since it was founded in 1981. Nobel Laureates Eugene Fama and Myron Scholes sit on the firm’s Board of Directors, as well as several other notable academics. By harnessing the greatest minds in the field and following a disciplined and rigorous implementation process, DFA has built an impressive track record of outperforming both benchmarks and peers. Dimensional now manages more than $600 Billion, making it one of the largest (and fastest growing) mutual fund companies in the country. And yet, they are still unknown to some investors. Why?

Only available through select advisors. DFA funds are not available to the general public in retail investment accounts. Instead, they are sold only through select financial advisors who have gone through a lengthy approval process.

No Revenue Sharing. In order to keep the cost of their funds as low as possible, DFA doesn’t pay commissions or kickbacks to the advisors who recommend their funds. Lower costs mean higher returns for investors, but a lack of commissions acts as a deterrent to commission-based advisors.

No Advertising. Because DFA only sells its funds through a select group of advisors, they have no need to advertise to the public. You won’t see commercials, magazine ads, or radio spots from DFA. Instead, they grow solely by attracting advisors who embrace their investment philosophy.

If you aren’t familiar with DFA, here are five reasons you should get to know them:

  1. Their strategies are developed using academic research
  2. They have a thoughtful implementation process that adds value to investors
  3. Their funds have some of the lowest expenses in the industry
  4. They only work with advisors who understand the research and have a disciplined approach
  5. Their funds have a long track record of outperforming


Think about it: a low-fee, socially responsible, globally diversified portfolio (thousands of securities) built on Nobel-Prize winning research.
