Third Point employs an event-driven, value-oriented strategy that spans a broad range of industries, geographies and asset classes. The firm identifies opportunities using a combination of top-down asset allocation decisions and a bottom-up, value-oriented approach to single security analysis. They make investments globally, in both developed and emerging markets, in all sectors, and in equity, credit, commodity, currency, options and other instruments. Third Point prefers event-driven situations, in which they believe that a catalyst, either intrinsic or extrinsic, will unlock value or alter conditions through which the greater market values a particular investment. The firm invests in publicly-traded and privately placed debt and equity securities in the following strategies: Long or Short Special Situation and Value Equities; Long or Short High-Yield Corporate Credit; Long or Short Distressed Corporate Credit; Long or Short ABS; Risk Arbitrage; Long or Short Physical and Exchange-Traded Commodities; and Long or Short Currencies or Government Debt. Third Point may also engage in various transactions in foreign securities; credit default swaps; futures and swaps; venture capital, private equity and direct real estate investments; and securities options strategies.

VVP seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in publicly-traded companies that are believed to be both undervalued and possessing a sustainable competitive advantage. The firm uses fundamental bottom-up analysis to identify companies believed to have sustainable competitive advantages allowing them to produce free cash flow and earn superior cash returns on capital. They seeks to invest in businesses that are run by ethical, capable, shareholder-oriented management teams that also are good operators and understand the importance of capital allocation. VVP then focuses their analysis on the difference between the price of the company's securities and their estimate of the intrinsic value of the securities. An investment becomes more attractive as the difference between value over price expands and the margin of safety increases. The firm generally invests larger amounts of a client's assets in companies determined to have lower price-to-value ratios and reduce capital committed to companies determined to have higher price-to-value ratios.
