Business conduct and ethics

Macquarie’s purpose ‘Empowering people to innovate and invest for a better future’ represents why we exist and what we do. We believe that by empowering people – our colleagues, clients, communities, shareholders and partners – we will achieve our shared potential.

Macquarie’s high standards for conduct are underpinned by What We Stand For, and our long-held principles of Opportunity, Accountability and Integrity.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations and in a way that enhances our reputation in the market. We are committed to ensuring our products and services are marketed appropriately and that clients are fairly treated. 

Business conduct and ethics are addressed within our existing risk management framework by establishing and maintaining an effective risk culture that drives good conduct. This is supported by a framework of policies, controls, processes and reporting mechanisms, in particular to manage compliance, legal, reputation and operational risks.
