Decoding Dimensional: Exclusive fireside chat with Dimensional CEO Dave Butler and film premiere of ‘Tune out the Noise'

About the session

Endowus would like to warmly invite you to an exclusive in-person event, featuring a fireside chat where Endowus Co-founder & Chairman, Samuel Rhee, will speak with Dave Butler, Co-CEO of Dimensional Fund Advisors LP, and Joel Teasdel, Head of Wealth Management Group, Asia ex-Japan and Vice President, Dimensional Fund Advisors LP, as they honour the decades-long revolution of science triumphing speculation in the financial services industry through their own personal experiences.

During the session, we will also be screening the premiere of Tune Out the Noise, a film about the founding of Dimensional Fund Advisors and the evolution of client-focused advice. Filmed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris, the documentary focuses on how Dimensional challenged the traditional methods of investing, the invention of index funds, and how these ideas have benefitted generations of investors.

About the film 

Tune Out the Noise 

An Errol Morris Film

In this film, Errol Morris explores decision making in a market filled with information overload. Tune Out The Noise follows a group of pioneers who crossed paths at the University of Chicago in the middle of the 20th century, including David Booth, Eugene Fama, Rex Sinquefield, and others who would later be key to the founding of Dimensional.

The film unfolds the story of decades-long revolution of science triumphing over speculation in the financial services industry and provides an exploration of how markets work, and why that matters.
