Investment Objective

The Balanced Income strategy consists of investing in fixed and variable income securities. Variable income securities must pay at least two-thirds of their respective index’s income. The objective of this strategy is to outperform the return of its benchmark and generate high current income.

Investment Approach

Since 1998, the team of investment professionals at Triasima have employed their proprietary research process that uses a multi-disciplined methodology called the “Three Pillar Approach” to provide strong relative returns to Triasima clients regardless of market conditions.
