Trium is dedicated to achieving the best possible risk-adjusted returns for its investors, and believes that Responsible Investment (“RI”) and Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) are important factors to consider when delivering this.
The motivation to consider RI and ESG is driven throughout Trium, across all departments and by all staff.
Trium takes ESG factors into account while ensuring that assets under its stewardship are managed in a way which maximises value for its clients. ESG principles help Trium uncover company risks as is consistent with its fiduciary duty.
The different strategies managed by Trium have different approaches when it comes to implementing RI. Additionally, our fund range includes dedicated ESG products, and we can often adapt investment products to satisfy an investor’s specific ESG requirements.
Trium recognises that its ESG policy is part of a continuous and long-term process that will evolve over time to reflect changes in industry best practice, internal processes, and to help ensure that Trium continues to realise and exceed its objective to remain a responsible investor.
