Rated against 451 Small Value funds as of 1/31/2023

Small in market cap, seeks high quality.

The Small-Cap Strategy is derived from Third Avenue’s value-oriented approach and is driven by our focus on well-managed companies with financial strength, potential to compound NAV, and securities priced at a discount to our conservative estimates of NAV. This leads to a portfolio of what we believe are high-quality businesses trading at deep discounts to intrinsic value.
