Canadian Equity Ex-Fossil

The Triasima Canadian Equity Ex-Fossil Strategy is an investment strategy structured for investors concerned by their portfolio’s carbon footprint.

Benchmarked against a customized index developed by MSCI (about 240 names), the strategy invests in Canadian publicly traded companies of all sizes while avoiding companies from the Energy sector, holding fossil fuel reserves, using coal to produce electricity or producing uranium

As a result of these restrictions, the strategy is expected to maintain a carbon footprint that is significantly lower than that of the S&P/TSX Composite Index while still being correlated to this Index.
