WE ARE PART OF A 120 YEAR FAMILY HISTORY AND CONSCIOUS OF OUR ENTREPRENEURIAL LEGACY
At Treïs, we’re building an intergenerational institution dedicated to operating and investing sustainably, built on a strong foundation of successful business leadership, family values, and an entrepreneurial spirit.
We believe that long term economic value can be achieved whilst pursuing positive social and environmental impact. For this reason, we invest responsibly to protect capital, create long-term value for all stakeholders and accelerate a transition to a more sustainable economy.
Our ambition is to pass on a better world to the next generation, making a positive contribution to our natural environment and social communities around us.
OUR RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
For Treïs, Responsible Investing goes beyond outcomes; it is also about mindset, the investment process, and fiduciary duty to investors. It encompasses a willingness to allocate capital in line with investor values and to contribute meaningfully to non-financial outcomes, as well as investors’ responsibility to the communities we work with and society at large.
“Our mission is to sustain and transmit our family values and legacy, to promote responsible entrepreneurship and investment, and to ensure our investments contribute to a free and balanced society confident in the future.”
LEGACY & SUSTAINABILITY
We are committed to respecting the past and protecting the future through sustainable stewardship.
We aim to promote a more sustainable economic model ; to protect human life and dignity, enhance common good and protect our environment, preserving natural resources for the benefit of future generations. We want to inspire collaboration, and the active transfer of knowledge and values, across generations.
FREEDOM & RESPONSIBILITY
As investors we bear a responsibility to act with integrity and commit to sustainability and excellence, in order to create a lasting impact.
We are committed to responsibly exercising our duties towards our stakeholders, with transparency and accountability. Internally, we strive to create an environment where people have the freedom and confidence to be themselves, as well as the tools to execute their duties responsibly and achieve their goals.
TRUST & CONSIDERATION
We endeavour to build relationships based on trust, integrity and positive intent, inspiring team spirit and acting collectively as a whole. We aim to be respectful and considerate both as an employer and as a business partner, encouraging an environment of mutual consideration and collective achievement.
Treïs is a family-led investment group and our family founders continue to be at the heart of what we do.
We enjoy a rich history of family entrepreneurship, corporate citizenship, and business performance. Our family business was founded in 1898 in Cherbourg (France). Starting as a local wholesaler in Normandy, it became a regional wholesale business and over the next century, grew into a global retail operation owing to the vision and determination of previous generations.
This progression continues today with Treïs – a business that has evolved to become a steward of responsible investment, creating positive change for present and future generations. We are proud to continue to build on the legacy of our founding family and their sense of economical, social and environmental responsibility.
Our name is an expression of our family roots. Treïs, meaning three in Norman French, refers to the name of the original Normandy flag and to the three lions illustrated upon it. Linked to this is the depiction of a tree in our logo which represents our deep family roots and focus on the importance of the environment, growth and patience.
