Remuneration Policy Summary
Dimensional Funds plc and Dimensional Funds II plc
March 10, 2021
As part of its compliance with Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (“SFDR”), Dimensional Funds plc and Dimensional Funds II plc (the “Funds”) are required to include in their remuneration policies information on how those policies are consistent with the integration of sustainability risks, and publish that information on their websites. To that end, the Funds have updated their UCITS V remuneration policies (the “Policy”).
The Policy applies only to directors of the Funds who receive remuneration from the Funds (the “Independent Directors”). The Policy does not apply to directors who are employees of Dimensional Fund Advisors Ltd. or its affiliates, as they do not receive remuneration from the Funds. The Funds do not have any other employees.
For their service as directors of the Funds, the Independent Directors receive a fixed fee only. None of the directors receive performance-based or variable remuneration and the structure of remuneration does not encourage excessive risk‐taking with respect to sustainability risks. It is not considered that there is any conflict of interest or pursuit of less sustainable opportunities with the goal of increasing compensation payable to any director of the Funds.
The Funds will review this policy on at least an annual basis and more frequently if necessary.
