Integrated liquidity from our:

  • significant Warrant, structured product and derivative businesses
  • highly ranked institutional broking business

  • strong synthetic products platform.

Through the broader platform integration we provide efficient access to cross product flow, allowing us to provide significantly larger flow opportunities and liquidity - particularly in names difficult to access.

Risk specialists
  • Dedicated country and regional risk specialists
  • Local knowledge with 24 hour service from five hubs globally
  • Product experts supported by a global team
  • An alternate touch point for sensitive lines, ideas and advice on product access.
Effective liquidity provision
  • We are continually expanding our risk management techniques, technology and products, allowing us to absorb single name and portfolio risk through our proactive inventory management process
  • Capital provided by Macquarie can help you find liquidity in situations where it would be otherwise difficult to locate, or altogether non-existent.

This allows us to provide our clients effective product access with minimal market impact and best execution.

Corporate access - client focus
  • We at Macquarie stand behind our convictions to partner, co-invest and open lines of capital to enable greater opportunities for our clients to invest
  • We customize our product to our clients needs, ensuring we provide the appropriate risk product, book structure and inventory, particularly when market volatility increases and on-market liquidity reduces.
