Our conversation covers Eduardo’s transition from academia to finance, lessons from DFA, and the founding of Avantis. We turn to Avantis’ low fee, systematic approach to identify securities with high expected returns, including screening companies for asset value and cash flow, considering intangible assets and momentum, conducting research, constructing portfolios, and taking advantage of managing a smaller asset base.
