At Trident, we believe that the best investment opportunities often are found by removing inherent bias.
Core to Trident’s investment thesis is the belief that, regardless of which small business we invest in, leveraging diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a competitive advantage and source of value creation for our Limited Partners.

Black Americans represent roughly 13% of the U.S. population and, we believe, should have at least that level of access to the American Dream. Our 13% pledge means:
Leveraging best-in-class strategies for maximizing commercial value that also harness the economic potential of advancing diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the value chain.
At least 13% of all value created (by increasing employment opportunities; access to capital; health and education benefits; wealth creation opportunities; and representation throughout the value chain) by all Trident investments will accrue to the Black American community.
Rigorously measuring, managing, and reporting performance against targeted DEI and SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) outcomes that are aligned with and contribute to returns for Limited Partners.
Trident has developed a systematic approach to private equity that leverages large data sets, proprietary technology, and unique processes. This allows the investment team to evaluate the largest number of small businesses efficiently and without the bias normally present in private equity processes.
Trident and its network are made up of diverse professionals who bring a unique mix of investing acumen, proprietary technology, and operational expertise to direct private equity investing, all with a commitment to exceptional returns for investors and positive social outcomes for underserved communities.
