MAM has been managing assets for institutional and retail investors since 1980 in Australia and 1929 in the US, through a predecessor firm of Delaware Investments.

MAM became a signatory to the PRI in August 2015. This is MAM’s first PRI report. Responses to the modules are for MAM with references to Macquarie Group or divisions within MAM where applicable.

MAM comprises the following three divisions:

Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA)
MIRA is a leader in alternative asset management worldwide, specialising in infrastructure, real estate, agriculture and energy via public and private funds, co-investments, partnerships and separately managed accounts. Investing regionally with expert local investment and asset management teams, its client base is primarily institutional investors, including global pension/superannuation funds, sovereign wealth funds, governments and other institutions. The division is recognised for its expertise over the investment lifecycle, with strong capabilities in investment sourcing, investment management and investor relationships.

Macquarie Investment Management (MIM)
MIM offers securities investment management capabilities across a number of asset classes including fixed income, currencies, equities, infrastructure securities, hedge funds and multi-asset allocation solutions. It delivers a full-service offering to both institutional and retail clients in the US and Australia, with selective offerings in other regions. Macquarie Investment Management also partners with selected specialist investment managers to distribute "best of breed" strategies in Australia through its Macquarie Professional Series range of funds.

Macquarie Specialised Investment Solutions (MSIS)
MSIS manufactures and distributes a range of tailored investment solutions including fund linked products, capital protected investments over funds and listed equities, secured ship financing, a hedge fund and private credit fund incubation platform, agriculture investment solutions, as well as infrastructure debt funds management. The division is recognised for product innovation with a strong track record of delivering tailored solutions to the market.

Macquarie Infrastructure Debt Investment Solutions (MIDIS) forms part of MSIS. MIDIS provides an infrastructure debt platform that originates and manages transactions on behalf of its pension and insurance clients, seeking low-risk assets achieving above market returns to match long dated liabilities. The platform was launched in the UK in 2012 and has since expanded its presence in to Europe and the United States. With mandates signed with investors in Europe, Asia and the US, MIDIS has the capability to invest in assets covering a wide range of sectors on a global scale.
