Macquarie has a non-hierarchical organisational structure, split into four operating groups. The Executive Committee manages the organisation as a whole and comprises the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Risk Officer, Chief Operating Officer, CEO of Macquarie Bank Limited and heads of Macquarie's operating groups.
Individual businesses operate within Macquarie's operating groups. These businesses work closely together, specialising in defined products or markets.
Within overall guidelines and a strong risk management framework, the operating groups have substantial discretion in the way they manage their business activities. Great emphasis is placed on a client's relationship with Macquarie as a whole.

Australia’s first official currency, the ‘holey dollar’ was an early example of financial innovation.
In 1813 the country faced a severe currency shortage. The Governor of the time, Lachlan Macquarie, addressed the shortage by importing 40,000 Spanish silver dollars and punching a hole through the centre to create two unique coins.
The currency stimulated the economy while retaining its intrinsic value, with the two new coins worth 25 per cent more than the original.
Today Macquarie Group is a global financial services organisation but our heritage is Australian. The holey dollar-inspired symbol we adopt as our logo embodies our purpose of empowering people to innovate and invest for a better future.
