The anticipation building up to elections often brings with it questions about how financial markets will respond. But the outcome of an election is only one of many inputs to the market. Dimensional Funds' interactive exhibit examines market and economic data for nearly 100 years of US presidential terms and shows a consistent upward march for US equities regardless of the administration in place. This is an important lesson on the benefits of a long-term investment approach. Please click on the link below for the exhibit:


In addition, Dimensional Funds is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, October 28th, at 3pm that you can register for below.  Apollo Lupescu, PhD and Vice President, provides an engaging perspective on the past 100 years of Presidential Elections, Administrations and Market Returns.
