Martin J. Whitman is Chairman of the Third Avenue Value Fund. The investing principle of the Fund is to acquire common stocks of well-financed companies at a substantial discount to their private market value or takeover value. The Fund also seeks to acquire senior securities, such as preferred stocks and debt instruments, that have strong covenant protection and above-average current yields, yields to events, or yields to maturity.
