About the Lawsuit

Third Avenue Trust and certain of its officers and affiliates are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

The Company's Registration Statements and Prospectuses stated that it maintained only a small proportion of its investments in illiquid securities and at no point held more than the 15% threshold set by the SEC, while, in fact, Third Avenue Trust consistently held more than 15% of its net assets in illiquid securities. Declining asset prices and customer redemptions caused Third Avenue Trust to suspend customer redemptions and place the fund's assets in a liquidating trust.
