At Triasima, our investment approach consists of combining three analytical methods – fundamental, quantitative, and trend analysis – to capture all aspects that may influence the future performance of securities. We call this proprietary methodology the Three-Pillar Approach™. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors have been a key variable of the fundamental pillar since its inception. Our approach is based on the assumption that businesses are doing the right thing. We use ESG factors to better understand the entities we invest in and to mitigate risk. Therefore, the integration of ESG factors is integral to Triasima’s investment approach.
