Abstract. The main purpose of this paper is to present a reducibility result based on a recent theorem of Turovskii on semi-groups of compact quasinilpotent operators. More precisely, we prove that every non-zero triangularizable family of compact operators has a hyperinvariant subspace, and then we present several sufficient conditions for simultaneous triangularization of a family of compact operators together with its commutant. We also give a different proof of Shulman's theorem. The finite-dimensional version of the results is also mentioned and emphasized.
