Mast’s robust infrastructure provides institutional-quality management in all facets of the investment process, while its discretionary capital sources allow Mast to act quickly compared to its competitors.

Investment Philosophy

Mast’s overarching investment philosophy is to maximize risk-adjusted returns for each investment and employ a holistic approach to value creation, which includes aggressive asset management, preservation of optionality, and continual exit evaluation. Mast believes that adherence to its investment philosophy has enabled it to make a series of successful investments through various market cycles. 

Investment Process

Mast utilizes a thorough and disciplined investment process, tested and proven over years of experience.

Once an investment is closed, Mast continually assesses its operations to uncover value creation opportunities and execute the business plan.
