    CFP® professionals are held to strict ethical standards to ensure financial planning recommendations are in your best interest.

  • Dimensional Funds
    Clear Perspectives Financial Planning, LLC has access to Dimensional Funds

    The Dimensional approach focuses on academic research that isolates the factors that tend to outperform the broad market over long time periods and the risk characteristics that can be eliminated from a portfolio. While indexes are simply measures of an asset class, DFA funds aim to efficiently capture the excess returns of an asset class without taking uncompensated risk—and at a low cost.
