Macquarie Group is a diversified financial group providing clients with asset management and finance, banking, advisory and risk and capital solutions across debt, equity and commodities. Macquarie Asset Management (MAM) is one of Macquarie Group’s five operating businesses.

MAM had $A549.5 billion of assets under management at 30 September 2018.

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. Responses to the modules are for MAM with references to Macquarie Group or divisions within MAM where applicable.

As at 30 September 2018, MAM comprised 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)
Macquarie Investment Management is a global asset manager with offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia. As active managers, we prioritize autonomy and accountability at the team level in pursuit of opportunities that matter for clients. In the US, retail investors recognize our Delaware Funds® by Macquarie as one of the longest standing mutual fund families, with more than 75 years in existence.

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 into Europe, Australia, and the United States. With mandates signed with investors in Europe, Australasia and the US, and LPs in Japan and South Korea, MIDIS has the capability to invest in assets covering a wide range of sectors on a global scale.

The LEI and LEA modules relate to MIM, the FI module relates to MIM and MIDIS and the INF module relates to MIRA.
