The Group Awards are presented by LSEG Lipper each year to recognize fund companies that have excelled relative to their peers.

“Third Avenue Management has remained singularly committed to executing upon its unique form of active, fundamental, value investing,” said Matthew Fine, Portfolio Manager of the Third Avenue Value Fund. “This has become an increasingly unconventional approach in recent years but one we believe enables our firm to produce superior results for clients across our strategies. We are thrilled to deliver on those expectations and grateful to LSEG Lipper for recognizing that success.”

“An actively managed fund with a sound strategy, robust process, and aligned portfolio management team has strong prospects to outperform over the long-term,” said Jason Wolf and Ryan Dobratz, Co-Portfolio Managers of the Third Avenue Real Estate Value Fund. “This distinguished award not only reinforces such a view but also represents the steadfast commitment Third Avenue has to delivering superior long-term results to our clients.”

Robert Jenkins, Global Head of Research, Investment & Wealth at LSEG Lipper added, “We applaud the 2024 LSEG Lipper Fund Award winners such as Third Avenue Management for delivering outperformance and the accompanying comfort of consistency to investors’ portfolios through a cross-current of global market disruptions.”
