A novel application of liability-driven investing to a target-date series sets Dimensional Target Date Retirement Income apart from its peers, but the question of whether this structure serves as an advantage remains outstanding. That along with a lack of defined asset-allocation resources and a process that leans heavily into courting interest-rate risk keep our conviction muted. The series earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for its single share class.
