Ethos
Responsibility

We strive for excellence in sustainability, responsible investing, and corporate governance.

In 2015, the United Nations agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the aim of safeguarding the planet, ending poverty, and bringing prosperity to all by 2030. Within the asset management industry there are various initiatives to align managers with universal, global sustainability goals. Where relevant, we aim to support these endeavours.

We are signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The PRI helps guide Trium in its investment approach with globally accepted standards for responsible investing.

Additionally, our fund range includes dedicated ESG products and we can often adapt investment products to satisfy an investor’s specific ESG requirements.

Governance

Our commitment to strong governance is a cornerstone of the business. We have been signatories of the Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI, formerly HFSB – Hedge Fund Standards Board) since 2015 and are members of the Alternative Investment Managers Association (AIMA), our industry’s global body.

The SBAI is a standard-setting body for the alternative investment industry and custodian of the Alternative Investment Standards. The SBAI provides a mechanism for creating a framework of transparency, integrity and good governance designed to improve how the alternative investment industry operates, facilitates investor due diligence and complements public policy.

The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) is the global representative of the alternative investment industry, with more than 1,900 corporate members in over 60 countries. AIMA draws upon the expertise and diversity of its membership to provide leadership in industry initiatives such as advocacy, policy and regulatory engagement, educational programmes and sound practice guides.

Looking out for others helps us grow

We understand that our responsibilities extend beyond those of our Portfolio Managers, investors and shareholders. As an organisation, we support various charities and social enterprises.

Trium’s Sales Director, Sue Petrie, sits on the UK board of Help for Children (HFC). A global foundation, HFC has a history of strong support from the hedge fund industry (so much so, many refer to it as “Hedge Funds Care”). HFC provides substantial grants to several charities with the remit of effectively preventing and treating child abuse around the world.

Signature Pictures is a social enterprise production company, partnered with Jobcentre Plus and the Prince’s Trust to provide training and work experience opportunities to unemployed and at risk young people in every department of its film productions. 90% of trainees have since gone on to work within film or media.

Trium is a regular supporter of Operation Christmas Child. Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child has been delivering gift-filled shoeboxes to underprivileged children around the world. It is now the UK’s largest children’s Christmas appeal. The idea is simple. Children and adults wrap and pack shoeboxes with a range of gifts and take them to a convenient ‘drop-off point’. These gift-filled shoeboxes are sent overseas where local churches distribute them to children, on the basis of need alone. Each shoebox is an unconditional gift, given to a child with nothing asked for, or expected in return.

Supporting our staff, supporting others

Giving back to the community helps staff develop important skills whilst benefitting those less fortunate. Staff member participation in charitable endeavours is therefore actively encouraged at Trium, with employees regularly taking part in sponsored activities or other charitable work. Flexible working options help our staff maintain their charitable commitments alongside their core Trium responsibilities.
