Asset Management

Mason Stevens Asset Management was established in 2010 to provide investors with access to professionally managed mandates and funds that are typically reserved for institutions and professional investors. Our clients include financial advisers, financial intermediaries, family offices and selected wholesale investors in the delivery of tailored investment solutions.


We have substantial experience in financial markets and across a range of asset classes including global fixed income, domestic equities and international equities.

Our process encourages robust debate, exchange of ideas and disciplined investment thesis development. We leverage the skills and expertise of the entire team to construct portfolios from the bottom up, but always with an understanding of the macro environment.

As partners and shareholders of the firm, our interests are fully aligned with clients.


Our investment philosophy is grounded in the belief that investors should have the ability to invest anywhere in the world, and across all asset classes. We work closely with clients in the construction of global and domestic investment portfolios.

Subject to the constraints of each mandate, we look for value across all asset classes and markets. We seek out markets and sectors that offer compelling risk and return characteristics across the globe. We believe that this flexibility and reach has the potential to generate attractive risk adjusted returns over time.


A hallmark of our approach is transparency in our investment management. Our mandate solutions offer complete transparency of client holdings at all times with continual online access to view investments.

We undertake a disciplined investment management approach in the construction of investment portfolios.

Mason Stevens has comprehensive governance and risk oversight procedures in place.
