Macquarie Group History

Macquarie Group (MQG) commenced trading in 1969 as Hill Samuel Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hill Samuel & Co. Limited, London. The Company started its operations in Sydney in January 1970 with only three staff. In February 1985, HSA was transformed into an Australian-owned licensed bank. The Bank adopted its name from the greatest of the early governors of the colony of New South Wales, Lachlan Macquarie. Its logo became Governor Macquarie's punched Spanish coin, the holey dollar, which Lachlan Macquarie used as the first domestic coinage of the colony. The bank was listed on the ASX in July 1996.

Macquarie Bank took over all the previous activities of HSA. It commenced business on 1 March 1985 with a retail branch in Sydney. A few months later it opened a trading bank branch in Melbourne and in November 1986 in Brisbane. Macquarie Bank Limited listed its fully paid ordinary shares on the ASX on 29 July 1996 and entered the ASX's All Ordinaries Index on 30 October 1996, with a market capitalisation of around $1.3 billion. MBL securityholders and optionholders and the Federal Court of Australia made a decision to restructure Macquarie group into a non-operating holding company (“NOHC”) structure in October 2007. The NOHC and Macquarie Group Limited (ultimate parent of the Macquarie group), is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.

At present Macquarie group is engaged in providing diverse range of banking, financial, advisory and investment services.
