Key Differentiators

Deep Value Investor

We seek investment opportunities that trade at a discount to readily ascertainable valuations and are often contrarian or special situation in nature

Balance Sheet Focused with a Long-Term Horizon

Third Avenue’s investment philosophy demands financial strength, which enables our portfolio holdings to both endure challenges and grow value over time

Focus on Total Return

Our goal is to provide above-average performance, most of the time and over the long term, while seeking capital preservation through investing in companies that typically have tangible assets that are often difficult to replicate; the Fund may serve as a non-correlating element to more mainstream value strategies

Global Universe

Our approach is globally opportunistic, finding value in economic and industrial recessions, complex corporate structures or capital structures and special situations in both developed and emerging markets

High Conviction, Active Portfolio Management

We actively manage the portfolio by prudently concentrating on our highest conviction ideas, and by holding cash when there are fewer buying opportunities

Objective:

The Value Fund’s flexible mandate takes a global, all-cap, benchmark-agnostic approach to equity investing and allows for select opportunistic investments in credit securities. Opportunities are evaluated with an emphasis on financial strength and an ability to compound net asset value, while our price-consciousness restricts our investment activity to securities priced at significant discounts to our conservative estimates of net asset value.

Important Risk Disclosures

Third Avenue Funds are distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC.  Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. Third Avenue Funds are offered by prospectus only.  The prospectuses and summary prospectuses are available on this website or by calling (800) 443-1021.  Read the prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before investing.

FUND RISKS: Risks that could negatively impact returns include: fluctuations in currencies versus the US dollar, political/social/economic instability in foreign countries where the Fund invests, lack of diversification, and adverse general market conditions. For a full disclosure of principal investment risks, please refer to the Fund’s Prospectus.

1Active Share is the percentage of a fund’s portfolio that differs from the benchmark index. The MSCI World Index is an unmanaged, free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of 23 of the world’s most developed markets.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.

The Morningstar Analyst RatingTM is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by Morningstar’s manager research group, which consists of various Morningstar, Inc. subsidiaries (“Manager Research Group”). In the United States, that subsidiary is Morningstar Research Services LLC, which is registered with and governed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Manager Research Group evaluates funds based on five key pillars, which are process, performance, people, parent, and price. The Manager Research Group uses this five-pillar evaluation to determine how they believe funds are likely to perform relative to a benchmark over the long term on a risk adjusted basis. They consider quantitative and qualitative factors in their research. For actively managed strategies, people and process each receive a 45% weighting in their analysis, while parent receives a 10% weighting. For passive strategies, process receives an 80% weighting, while people and parent each receive a 10% weighting. For both active and passive strategies, performance has no explicit weight as it is incorporated into the analysis of people and process; price at the share-class level (where applicable) is directly subtracted from an expected gross alpha estimate derived from the analysis of the other pillars. The impact of the weighted pillar scores for people, process and parent on the final Analyst Rating is further modified by a measure of the dispersion of historical alphas among relevant peers. For certain peer groups where standard benchmarking is not applicable, primarily peer groups of funds using alternative investment strategies, the modification by alpha dispersion is not used.

The Analyst Rating scale is Gold, Silver, Bronze, Neutral, and Negative. For active funds, a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze reflects the Manager Research Group’s expectation that an active fund will be able to deliver positive alpha net of fees relative to the standard benchmark index assigned to the Morningstar category. The level of the rating relates to the level of expected positive net alpha relative to Morningstar category peers for active funds. For passive funds, a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze reflects the Manager Research Group’s expectation that a fund will be able to deliver a higher alpha net of fees than the lesser of the relevant Morningstar category median or 0. The level of the rating relates to the level of expected net alpha relative to Morningstar category peers for passive funds. For certain peer groups where standard benchmarking is not applicable, primarily peer groups of funds using alternative investment strategies, a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze reflects the Manager Research Group’s expectation that a fund will deliver a weighted pillar score above a predetermined threshold within its peer group. Analyst Ratings ultimately reflect the Manager Research Group’s overall assessment, are overseen by an Analyst Rating Committee, and are continuously monitored and reevaluated at least every 14 months.For more detailed information about Morningstar’s Analyst Rating, including its methodology, please go to https://shareholders.morningstar.com/investor-relations/governance/ Compliance–Disclosure/default.aspx.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating (i) should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a fund, (ii) involves unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause the Manager Research Group’s expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what they expected, and (iii) should not be considered an offer or solicitation to buy or sell the fund.
