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.
