Ian Beatty - Trading liquidity for opportunity

David Clark

Koda Capital

In this episode of Inside The Rope, David is joined by Ian Beatty the Managing Partner of SecondQuarter a fund that primarily invests in growing but commercially viable Australian and New Zealand technology businesses. Ian and David discuss the difficulty of investing in venture capital businesses in the current environment, alongside the opportunities that it presents for investors.

Growing up in Melbourne and spending his weekends on the family's sheep farm, Ian has always had a keen interest in financial markets thanks to his father's involvement in the industry. Ian began his career before the dot com crash at internet.com, an analysis and insight business for websites at the time, where unbeknownst at the time, Ian was afforded the opportunity to work alongside now Australian tech royalty Mike Cannon-Brooks and Niki Scevak at the early stages of their careers. Ian has since accumulated further experience spanning funds management, multi-asset-class investing, particularly venture investing, as well as operational experience in technology startups.
