The Story

Mark Maloney is arguably one of Australia’s most successful investors and serial entrepreneurs.
Having worked 15 years in investment banking abroad before returning home to take the reins
of his family’s company, Mark subsequently led The Mac Group to become one of Australia’s
best-performing top 200 ASX-listed companies. Today, he spends his time working with Tulla
Investment Group and Intrepic Co.
In part two of our chat with Mark, we dug even deeper into how investors can evaluate a
founder, and perhaps most critically how to notice red flags. This line of questioning led us
through some of Mark’s biggest wins/losses and the lessons behind those outcomes. We also
touched on Mark’s personal investment philosophy and got some of his thoughts on the future.
