About

What We Stand For

At Macquarie our purpose and principles guide our actions. These form part of our Code of Conduct, which sets out the way our people are expected to do business.

Our purpose

Our purpose explains why we do business. We believe that by empowering people - our colleagues, clients, communities, shareholders and partners – we will achieve our shared potential.

Our principles

Macquarie’s purpose is enabled by three long-held principles that explain how we do business.

Opportunity

We seek to identify opportunity and realise it for all our stakeholders.

We start with real knowledge and skill. We encourage innovation, ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit.

We support our people to achieve and succeed. Our success is built on this.

We value the opportunity to be part of the Macquarie team. We realise opportunity, respecting different ways of thinking and the contribution of others.

Accountability

With opportunity, comes accountability.

We are accountable for all our actions, to our stakeholders and to each other. We never compromise our standards.

We take responsibility for our actions and everything we say and do is on record. We analyse and manage risk, and we make decisions we are proud of.

Integrity

We always act honestly and fairly. We honour our promises.

We earn the trust of our stakeholders through the quality of our work and our high ethical standards.

We have the courage to speak up when we make a mistake or see something that doesn't seem right.
