Corporate governance

About Corporate Governance

Macquarie’s approach to corporate governance is to:

  • identify opportunity and realise it for our clients, community, shareholders and our people;
  • promote the long term profitability of Macquarie while prudently managing risk;
  • drive superior and sustainable shareholder value over the long term through the alignment of the interests of shareholders and staff; and
  • meet stakeholder expectations of sound corporate governance as part of Macquarie’s broader responsibility to clients, shareholders, investors and the communities in which it operates.

Board of Directors

Macquarie recognises that independent directors have an important role in assuring shareholders that the Board is able to act in the best interests of Macquarie and independently of management. The Policy on Board Renewal, Appointment of Directors and Board Performance Review sets out the fundamental factors relevant to the selection and appointment of new Directors.

Business conduct and ethics

Macquarie’s Code of Conduct sets out the way staff are expected to do business. The Code of Conduct is also reflected in, and supported by, a broad range of Macquarie’s policies and procedures. 

Continuous disclosure

Macquarie believes that shareholders, regulators, ratings agencies and the investment community should be informed of all major business events and risks that influence Macquarie in a factual, timely and widely available manner. Macquarie’s continuous disclosure policy is incorporated in the External Communications Policy.

Constitution and charters

Macquarie’s Constitution sets out requirements concerning the setting of board size, meetings, election of directors and the powers and duties of directors. The Board Charter details the Board’s role and responsibilities and its relationship with Management. Macquarie’s five standing Board Committees assist the Board in its oversight role. The Board Committee Charters detail the composition and responsibilities of each Committee and how they exercise their authority.
