Investing to deliver positive impact for everyone

Macquarie Asset Management (MAM) is a global asset manager that aims to deliver positive impact for everyone. We are trusted by institutions and individuals to manage more than $A795.61 billion of assets globally, investing responsibly to generate long-term value and drive positive outcomes in the communities in which we operate.

We provide access to specialist investment expertise across public and private markets, including fixed income, equities, multi-asset solutions, private credit, infrastructure, green investments, natural assets, real estate, and asset finance.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do

We invest sustainably not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we believe it drives better outcomes for our clients and portfolio companies over the long term. As custodians of vital businesses which touch every aspect of people’s daily lives, we have both a responsibility and an opportunity to ensure that we are actively driving positive change for everyone through our investments.

Net zero by 2040

Our business aspires to be a global leader in sustainable real asset management and is working to create climate-resilient infrastructure.

MAM is committed to achieving net zero emissions across our investment portfolio by 2040 – 10 years ahead of the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Across our private markets platform, we work closely with companies to build sustainable, adaptable and resilient businesses. Through the Green Investment Group (GIG), we are also dedicated to the development of companies, assets and technologies that will accelerate the global transition to net zero.

Across our public investments platform, we are integrating ESG practices into investment teams’ processes to identify ESG risks and opportunities associated with our investee companies. Additionally, through direct engagement with companies and proxy voting, we are encouraging companies towards enhanced disclosure and action on sustainability issues.
