How Storytelling Builds Trust
“One needn’t look far to find reasons to worry about the markets. With the Fed raising rates by 1.25% over the last two months, interest rate fears – with attendant recession worries – are running rampant among investors.

I have no commercial relationship with Dimensional, but its story illustrates how advisors can build trust with their clients through an effective narrative.”
