Aegis Financial Corp. specializes in the management of investments in small-cap value equities and high yield fixed-income securities. The firm offers the following investment strategies: Small Cap Value Equity, High Yield Fixed Income, and Strategic Asset Allocation.^^Aegis' Small Cap Value Equity is a deep value strategy that invests primarily in common stocks that the firm believes are significantly undervalued relative to the market based on fundamental measures including book value (assets less liabilities), revenues or cash flow. Assets may be invested in securities issued by companies of any market-cap, including small- and mid-cap companies. The strategy has no percentage allocation for investments in small- or mid-cap companies, and may invest up to 100% in such securities. Assets may also be invested in the securities of foreign companies and in REITs. ^^Assets in the firm's High Yield Fixed Income are invested primarily in high yield fixed income securities, including lower-quality, high-risk US and foreign corporate bonds that are rated below investment grade by Moody’s, S&P or Fitch, or that are unrated but Aegis considers them to be of comparable quality. Investments may include income producing common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible bonds or convertible preferred stocks, warrants, investment-grade bonds, forward currency exchange contracts and options on securities. Assets may be invested in the securities of foreign companies or securities of entities in default. The strategy may invest up to 100% in high yield bonds.^^Aegis' Strategic Allocation strategy invests in a combination of the Small Cap Value Equity Strategy, the High Yield Fixed Income Strategy, and cash or cash equivalent instruments. Aegis will vary the allocations, from time-to-time, with the intention of increasing returns and lowering investor exposure to market risk at times they believe to be opportunistic.
