Global presence. Macquarie has feet on the ground all over the world: Macquarie Private Wealth advisors now number more than 185 in Canada. We have 500 additional advisors in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore, who together serve more than a million clients. This keeps us in direct contact with global economies and markets: we know first-hand about emerging trends and can actively adjust our strategies to maximize opportunities and minimize risk.
Thought leadership. We regularly draw upon internationally renowned investment analysts from other Macquarie business units, such as Craig Swanger, Executive Director and Head of Macquarie Global Investments, who report on long-term influences that shape our advisors’ decisions.
Macquarie Group was founded on a philosophy of financial innovation. In fact, our name celebrates one of Australia’s first financial innovators: Governor Lachlan Macquarie, creator of the Holey Dollar. Our operating principle is Forward Thinking; providing our clients with next-generation ideas is in our very DNA.
Financial strength. Macquarie Group manages $332 billion in assets globally and is listed on the Australian stock exchange. The company holds in excess of $32 billion cash in liquid assets on its balance sheet and retains more than $3.5 billion in surplus regulatory capital.* Founded in 1969, Macquarie has had a continuous history of profitability.
Assets managed. Macquarie’s assets are a part of our daily lives. Examples of this include our stake in the Detroit-Windsor tunnel, the reconstruction and funding of the Sea-to-Sky Highway for the Vancouver Olympics, ownership of Thames Water—the largest water services company in the UK—and major interests in infrastructure and services companies worldwide.
