Macquarie is a diversified financial group providing clients with asset management and finance, banking, advisory and risk and capital solutions across debt, equity and commodities.
The diversity of our operations, combined with a strong capital position and robust risk management framework, has contributed to our 48-year record of unbroken profitability.
On 10 December 1969, Macquarie’s predecessor organization, Hill Samuel Australia, opened its doors with three staff and an ambition to provide advisory and investment banking services of an international standard to the Australian market.
Now we are a global business operating in over 25 countries and with specialist expertise in areas such as resources, agriculture, and commodities, energy and infrastructure, with particular knowledge of the Asia-Pacific region.
Since its inception, Macquarie has differentiated itself by focusing on new opportunities, both in product and geography, progressively building expertise in these disciplines and expanding into adjacent areas.
Here are some of the key events that have shaped our evolution into a uniquely diversified business.
