Macquarie has a non-hierarchical organisational structure, split into six operating groups. The Executive Committee, a central group comprising the Managing Director, Deputy Managing Director, Head of Risk Management, Global Chief Operation Officer and heads of Macquarie's major operating groups, manage the organisation as a whole.
Individual businesses operate within Macquarie's operating groups. These businesses work closely together, specialising in defined product or market sectors, and are committed to their client's relationship with the Macquarie group.
Within overall guidelines and a strong risk management framework, the operating groups have substantial discretion in the way they manage their business activities. Great emphasis is placed on a client's relationship with Macquarie as a whole.
Four service groups provide the framework, infrastructure and support that the operating groups require to manage their business. These are the Corporate Operations, Financial Management, Legal and Governance, and Risk Management Groups.
