Rather than trying to predict the future, wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to draw information about expected returns from the market itself? Luckily there is. Through scientific and evidence-based investing, you can take a less subjective and more systematic approach to investing. In this episode, Christian Newton, Vice President of Dimensional Fund Advisors, joins the show to discuss the scientific perspective on investing, particularly how it relates to the investor.

Listen in as Christian explains where we often see a gap in investment returns and investor returns, as well as his advice for tuning out the noise when it comes to investing. You will learn why you shouldn’t sell in a market downturn, what you can do to ensure your finances are stable and how to create a good investment plan.
