Macquarie’s business research is highly regarded both in Australia and internationally. In the most recent Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation, our economics research received a rating of ‘performance at world standard,’ as did our research in the sub-disciplines of banking, finance and investment, and business management.
Prominent Macquarie alumni and distinguished executives from leading multinationals and government departments such as the Actuaries Institute, Amgen, AMP, Colonial First State, Lonergan Edwards, NSW Treasury and Qantas sit on our Industry Advisory Board, which provides input into areas such as research development and innovation.
Our research expertise is regularly sought by organisations such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, Australian Crime Commission, Australian Securities Investment Commission, AXA, Business Council of Australia, CPA Australia, Diversity Council of Australia, Institute of Actuaries of Australia, Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, International Labour Organization, Reserve Bank of Australia, Rockefeller Foundation, Safe Work Australia, Suncorp, United Nations and World Bank, as well as by state, national and international governments.
