FPA Crescent Fund

Investment Objective and Strategy:

The Fund seeks to generate equity-like returns over the long-term, take less risk than the market and avoid permanent impairment of capital.

Philosophy:

Absolute value investors. We seek genuine bargains rather than relatively attractive securities.

Alignment of interests. We invest our money alongside yours, and we act as stewards of our shared capital.

Broad mandate. We invest across the capital structure, asset classes, market caps, industries, and geographies. We are willing to hold cash.

Long-term focus. We believe the best way to accomplish our goals is to accept short-term underperformance in exchange for long-term success.

Macroeconomic view. We incorporate an understanding (sometimes limited) of the economic environment.

Volatility. If we have performed our research correctly, volatility creates opportunity, not risk.

Downside protection / Risk minimization. We aim to protect capital first and create long-term equity-like returns second. We cannot eliminate risk, but we conduct ourselves by hoping for the best, while preparing for the worst.

Value investing does not protect against loss of principal and their is no assurance that the Fund will meet its objective.

For additional information, please reference the Contrarian Policy Statement.
