Macquarie Bank is a global financial services group based in Australia. Macquarie began life in 1969 as Samuel Hill Australia, as a subsidiary of British bank Hill Samuel & Co. After the deregulation of the markets in the 1980s, Samuel Hill Australia became Macquarie in order to take advantage of opportunities for an Australian-owned bank. It is only the second private bank to be established in modern Australia.
Macquarie’s philanthropy arm, the Macquarie Group Foundation, was founded in 1985.
Macquarie also has a collection of artworks, the Macquarie Group Collection, established in 1987. These works are displayed in the bank’s offices internationally; it is one of the world’s biggest corporate collections of Australian art.
Now, Macquarie has offices in 25 countries and employs more than 14,000 people worldwide. It is divided into several business strands:
Corporate and Asset Finance
Banking and Financial Services
Commodities and Global Markets
Within these strands, the asset management arm includes three standalone businesses: Investment Management, Infrastructure and Real Assets and Specialised Investment Solutions.
