Third Avenue Small-Cap Value Fund

Inception: April 1997

Victor Cunningham, CFA | Lead-Portfolio Manager
Evan Strain, CFA | Co-Portfolio Manager

Our Small-Cap Strategy seeks long term capital appreciation by investing in equity securities of small capitalization companies in the US that we believe to be mispriced by the market.

Small in market cap, seeks high quality.

The Small-Cap Strategy follows Third Avenue’s value-oriented approach and is driven by our focus on financial strength, ability to compound NAV, and priced at a discount to our conservative estimate of NAV.  Our concentration on companies with financial strength and potential to compound NAV leads to a portfolio of what we believe are high quality businesses at a deep discount.

Third Avenue Funds are distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC.  Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing.

1 Active Share is the percentage of a fund’s portfolio that differs from the benchmark index. The Russell 2000 Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values.

Indices are not securities that can be purchased or sold, and their total returns are reflective of unmanaged portfolios. The returns include reinvestment of interest, capital gains and dividends.
