Third Avenue Value Fund

Opportunistic. Eclectic. Go Anywhere.

Our strategy seeks long term capital appreciation by investing opportunistically across a global universe of sectors, geographies and security types to build a differentiated portfolio of contrarian and special-situation opportunities. The fund’s investments are generally characterized by what we believe are strong financial positions, valuation supported by tangible assets and market prices substantially below our estimate of intrinsic business value.

The Value strategy’s flexible mandate takes a global, all-cap equities approach and allows for opportunistic investments in credit securities across the capital structure. Opportunities are evaluated with sharp focus on financial strength, ability to compound NAV, and priced at a significant discount to our conservative estimate of NAV.
