What does Macquarie Group Limited (MQG) do?

Macquarie Group Limited was founded in Sydney (as Hill Samuel Australia Limited). Today Macquarie is a provider of diversified financial services throughout Australia, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

How does Macquarie Group operate and earn revenue?

MAM’s solutions are provided across a range of capabilities including infrastructure, green investments, agriculture and natural assets, real estate, private credit, insurance, asset finance, equities, fixed income and multi-asset solutions.

The MAM segment operates globally.

The BFS segment is made of three divisions: Personal Banking, Wealth Management and Business Banking.

  • Wealth Management provides clients with a wide range of wrap platform and cash management services, investment and superannuation products, financial advice, private banking and stockbroking. 

  • Business Banking provides a full range of deposit, lending and payment solutions, and vehicle financing. It also provides tailored services to business clients, ranging from sole practitioners to corporate professional firms.

Is Macquarie Group a profitable company?

Yes, Macquarie Group is a profitable company.

The bank’s net income for FY2018, FY2019, FY2020 and FY2021 arrived at A$2.5b, A$2.99b, A$2.73b and A$3.02b, respectively. 

In FY2022, Macquarie’s net income was up a whopping 56% from FY2021’s for an annual record of A$4.7b.

Is MQG a good investment?

Fears of inflationary pressures, escalating interest rates and the impacts of geopolitical tensions appear to have overtaken markets worldwide. Macquarie announced exceptional FY2022 financial results on 6 May 2022, with net income up by 56% from FY2021. Still, upon the opening of the ASX, the market dumped MQG shares by over 6%.

Regardless, some long-term buy and hold investors remain excited about the stock due to the strength of its financials and consistent distribution of dividends.
