When it comes to accessing wholesale investment opportunities, timing & visibility is everything. 

Potential in scope

Mason Stevens sees all primary deals released to the ASX, with growing market connections, exposure and allocations in overseas capital markets.

Opportunities are fleeting

IPOs, placements and new bond issuances are time-sensitive deals requiring market relationships, scale and dynamic decision-making to capture their full potential.

Value in arbitrage

By accessing primary market deals, the strategy can take advantage of restricted supply/increased secondary market demand to generate asymmetric returns.

A solution for investors seeking:

  • Efficient access to IPO’s, capital raisings, placements, issuances
  • An absolute return product leveraging discounts to market and restricted supply to generate capital growth in the short-term
  • Greater liquidity, visibility and transparency of the traditional IPO & Placement process
  • A standalone source of returns or complement to an existing investment option return objective


The principal objective is to deliver strong investment returns and provide efficient access to IPOs, capital raisings and placements.
