Does anyone have any insight into what this group at MacCap does? Seems like some sort of internal strategy group; any work on live deals or internal M&A? Most of the people in this group are ex-IB seniors, i.e. MD of this group in EMEA was ex-COO. How hard is it to get into this group and could you exit into IB after? Also if anyone has any insight into mobility within Macquarie e.g. from IB to MIRA or from this group. Any info appreciated. Cheers guys

I received a summer analyst offer for Macquarie's Commodities & Global Markets group. I'm curious if anyone has any insight on the group? I'd appreciate anything at all. Thank you.

Hey Folks, I've just completed a Spring Insight (London) at Macquarie and been fast tracked to a super-day in May for their Infrastructure Debt Group (MIDIS). I found the work and the team super interesting and well-rounded. However my question is how to prepare for such a niche group. Is there some readings/books/models in particular I should look up? What concepts should I familiarise myself with and which website/resources would be a good start. Moreover I find International Development / Infra PE as my end goal but would love to dally in traditional finance too. I was also at the Lazard

Hi, does anyone know know what are titles at CGM at Macquarie in Europe? how the hierarchy is organised and what are the criteria for promotions? Thanks

I'm likely to receive an offer at Macquarie for a rotational S&T summer internship. It seemed like a cool firm with a good culture and I'm excited for the opportunity. I was just wondering if anyone could provide me any more info about the firm. What are the best desks to join? How is the firm seen on the street? Will I be able to jump to another bank with relative ease if need be? The analyst class will be tiny (

Does anyone have insight on MacCap's energy infrastructure group (culture / compensation / exit opportunities etc.)? I know this is their top group and they are strong in the space. Additionally, I know it's a mixture of advisory / IB work along with principal investing - a unique opportunity.

Just got a summer offer in Macquarie's infrastructure private equity division with Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA). Anyone got any thoughts on this internship vs a "traditional" IB internship? What are pros/cons of MIRA and infra pe in general (especially in FT roles)? What are exit opps for infra pe or am I bound to infrastructure private equity for the rest of my career?

I got two offers for the summer and was hoping to get some insight on which one to take. The first is for Macquarie Capital and the second is with Stifel both in their investment banking group. As far as culture, training program, hours at work, compensation, and opportunities for advancement which offer should I take?

Hey all, how are you doing? I am deciding what group I want to work at as a Summer Analyst for Macquarie. I am deciding between LevFin and Infrastructure(Transportation and PPP's). Any recommendation of what is a better group or which one will give me more exit opportunities?

Hi everyone, Does anyone know what Macquarie bonuses were for 2016 at analyst level for in London / NY? Figures were released on Friday 6 May. Despite the bank had good results this year, they apparently reduced the bonus pool last minute.

Guys, just finished sophomore year at a semi-target. Interning at a very-well known boutique I-Bank in ER FIG after completing an internship at another I-Bank as a spring analyst. Got an email from a recruiter at Macquarie basically looking to hire me. Anyone got any info on these guys? He looked at my linkedin profile, where I have my title as "Equity Research Summer Associate at xx" I think he thinks I'm a FT employee here but I have it written everywhere that I am still in college.... He asked me to email him if I'm interested.

Fortunately, I was able to receive offers from the following banks for their summer analyst program 2015: Offers Credit Suisse (FFM), Rothschild (FFM), Perella Weinberg Partners (LND), Macquarie (LND), BoAML (LND) All offers are for M&A or generalist at the BB. Which one would you choose? What are your thoughts about Perella Weinberg Partners in London? Which one will pay the most at Analyst level and has the best prestige and exit-options?

From my limited experience it seems that Macquarie does a large amount of merchant banking activity for what is a fairly large international bank. Can anyone shed some light on how their IB and merchant banking activities overlap? Do their IB analysts in a coverage group ever work on buy-side merchant banking deals? How important is their merchant banking within the bank as a whole? Culturally is it a big push? Anyone input on this would be much appreciated.

Hello, Could anyone offers some insights into Macquarie Capital, some pros about the company, some company specific things (i.e. corporate culture) that perhaps it does differently than its competitors. I know that Macquarie is a MM firm, and is big on restructuring. Tried doing some research, but can't really coming up with anything concrete. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks fellow monkeys!! Working at Macquarie Capital Macquire Capital is mostly considered a middle market. The banks reputation has shifted somewhat through the years. Here are some thoughts form some certified

I have an in-person interview with a senior manager at Macquaire Corporate and Asset Finance tomorrow for an analyst position. Was wondering if anyone had experience interviewing for this particular group. I'm most interested in knowing what sort of questions I should expect to be asked. Was contacted by someone from HR late last week and scheduled a phone interview. A few days after the phone interview, HR contacts me again asking if I'm available to meet someone from the managing in-house M&A team the next day. Should I expect technical or more behavioral questions? HR described the team as

Hey guys, Am trying to decide an offer between Macquarie and Jefferies (IBD). Do any past SA's have any info on the offer rate given out and how many accepted? I think it's a good indication whether they had a positive experience or not....
02 Dec 2011
I got an interview with Macquarie Capital Group as a summer intern. What should I expect during the first round of finance interviews? How should I prepare? This is really exciting for me and can't wait to share the good news!
20 Apr 2010
Just took a psychometric assessment (quantitative, verbal, and abstract reasoning) today at one of Macquarie's offices. From what I could glean from HR, those who perform well are advanced to final interviews. Does anyone have any clue as to what is considered a passing grade for these kinds of tests? Perhaps people who have taken this test for Macquarie before? Really just curious as to how well you need to do. You had to complete 28 abstract reasoning questions in 14 minutes, 30 verbals in 15 minutes, and 21 maths in 21 minutes. Given the intense time constraints, I rushed through most questions and I am sure I got at least several wrong in each section.

It's decision time!!! Do I leave my BB job for an offer at mac? I'd love to hear anything from you if you work at mac now or left recently.... how's life at mac? how does it compare to other banks? tell me more about the culture? do you ever have time to use the ping pong table??? THANKS!!!!!
10 Sep 2008
which offer would you take (for SA) and why. assume both in NYC I know these aren't BBs- so to pre-emptively quell flamers (1styearbanker), I'm in the running for BBs as well.

I am an undergraduate with summer offers at Morgan Stanley equity research and Macquarie investment bank. I'm not sure which career path I want to pursue. Which option would do a better job of keeping my options open and putting me in a good place (both for full-time recruitment if I don't get a full time offer, or 2 years out of school if I get a job there)? Which would be a better overall experience? How strong is MS at ER and Macquarie at IB? Thanks for the help.

Over the past few months Macquarie has pretty much massacred its 1st and 2nd year analyst classes as well as people up and down the ladder. Historically, Macquarie has made a name for itself in the infrastructure and private equity investing space. However poor performance of its assets across its many funds and lack of money to invest has put it in a precarious spot with little to no revenue generation capacity. I would suggest steering clear of Macquarie and instead heading to more established middle market, BB or boutique firms

Hello everyone, Would you guys and gals be able to provide some insight into Macquarie's West Coast (SF,LA) IB operation? Deal flow, deal sizes, industries covered, reputation, exit ops, etc. Thread responses and PMs are welcome. Thank you all!
17 Feb 2015
I am wondering if anyone has been invited (or have already received) a super day interview from Mac Cap's PTG in NY? If so, how was it and were there any technical questions that differed from your typical ib interview? Understanding that this is their merchant banking team and that they invest across the entire capital structure, I assume their questions could be more conceptual and buy-side based. Would love to hear some feedback.
06 Feb 2015
Have a phone interview with Macquarie for a SA position in IB. Not really sure what to expect from a phone interview, as I am more used to and more comfortable with face to face interviews. Any ideas on what sorts of questions they will ask? any general advice? thanks
02 Feb 2010
Title tells a lot. As Macquarie is well known for its asset management arm (MIRA), there are very few information about its principle investment & IBD arm (Macquarie Capital, MacCap), especially in London. Does anyone have some info about how MacCap, especially its infrastructure & green investment group, is doing in the current market, compared with other InfraPE? Work content? And potential exit opportunities? Will thank a lot for any input!

I've got a final round with Macquaire Toronto, and I would love to hear from anyone who is familiar with the final round interview process for analysts! Thanks in advance!

Looks like Miranda Kerr enthusiast David Kiely gets to keep grinding it out at Macquarie. After an internal review, the company has decided not to sack Dave after his unfortunate Internet browsing on live TV. Anyone else think this is just hysterical? I always worked with the kind of guys who would do this sort of thing to you if they had the opportunity. I once sent a colleague a video with instructions to turn his speakers up because the audio was really low. It was a video of kittens for about 10 seconds, and then it switched to a guy screaming, "The boss is a c**t!" over and over again at max volume. He told me he got his ass reamed for that one. So, all is well with Dave at Macquarie.

Hey guys, I recently posted a question asking whether I should take SA Macquarie IBD over HSBC Strategic Transactions Group (both in NYC), and I can safely say that I'd much rather prefer Macquarie over HSBC in the NY office. However, I'm now faced with the choice between Macquarie and Nomura IBD, again both in NYC. Both are growing firms in NYC, with Nomura having a stronger global presence from what I've read on these forums. Does anybody have any suggestions on which firm I should do my summer at? Thanks in advance.
14 Feb 2011
I was wondering what you guys thought was a better option between these two banks? I have an offer outstanding with Jefferies and an interview with Macquarie coming up. It is in Macquarie's investment banking group in NYC to be clear. I appreciate the insight.
24 Sep 2009
I have a final round with Macquarie Capital in New York. Has anyone interviewed there for final rounds? It seems like you interview with only 4 senior people. Has anyone gone through it/what's the process like/what are some of the questions asked. Thanks in advance
21 Oct 2008
Has anyone out there has recently applied for an analyst position with MacCap in their Real Estate group, or are there any analysts currently working in said group at the moment? I have a few questions below; 1) What is the interview process like? 2) What are the comps for a 1st, 2nd year analyst? 3) What is the culture like? Would truly appreciate it if someone out there is able to provide insights. Thanks.
22 Dec 2009
I'm curious if anyone knows which teams and desks within Macquarie's Commodities and Global Merkets group are performing well right now. Or if anyone has any recommendations for someone with an upcoming rotational internship on which functions/teams to request. Thank you!
13 Dec 2018
hey guys. I was wondering if anyone of you guys are invited to 2010 graduate opportunity at Macquarie Capital. I applied and I didn't hear back yet but my friend did and he said he has phone interview this coming week. What kind of position is this and if anyone has job description please post or pm me. Thanks!
13 Jun 2010
Hey everyone, First time posting on WSO, and i was hoping to get some advice from you guys. I received an offer from HSBC Strategic Transactions Group, which is pretty much M&A, and one from Macquarie for IBD. I just want to go to whichever place has better dealflow and will give me the most experience/responsibilities. Where do you guys think I should go? If it came down to culture, I'd go to MacQ, but I've heard a lot about their poor bonuses from last year and their weak reputation in the U.S., both of which concern me. HSBC seems to have a steady stream of cross-border transactions. Which do you think is better? Any advice/feedback/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
11 Feb 2011
Anyone happen to have interviewed with Macquarie IB NYC yet? Apparently the email for final rounds says there is a case interview that is given to you 45 minutes in advance? Anybody have any idea what it is? Is it suppose to be like a consulting case or what?
19 Oct 2010
I was wondering if anyone knew Macquarie's SA to FT conversion rate for the last couple summers; will be starting SA there in June and was curious as to what my chances were (given a successful summer) of being offered back. With that said, how do banks usually re-invite you for FT? Is it your last week of summer? After you're done? Curious.
26 Feb 2010
Hey guys I've got summer intern offer's from Macquarie Capital and Moelis, both in London. Moelis would send me to NY office for 1 week training program. Any thoughts on the decision making? Moelis UK seems to have set up their office 4 months ago or so, the MD that interviewed me had started work there the way before the interview lol I know Moelis is renowned in the states, but thoughts on uk ?
10 Feb 2010
Ok so I have FIVE final rounds and I think that all but one should potentially lead to an offer. Greenhill: obviously my first choice...just don't know if I'll get it. BMO Capital Markets (NY) Pros: Love the analysts I've met. Great analyst compensation (way above street from the analysts I've spoken with). Has a very large commercial bank backing and should be healthy. Great office in Times Square (top 4 floors of reuters building). Cons: Little/no brand recognition in the US. Not sure about exit opportunities (anyone?). Mostly middle-market deals...no big name corporations. Jefferies (Broadview Tech NY)

How does not being able to attend the Macquarie Coffee hour on superday due conflict with another interview hurt my chances? Is it reasonable to ask for either firm to reschedule? To give you the details: both interviews came on very short notice I really like Macquarie, but canceling my final round with this Other company has far reaching implications The Macquarie rep on the phone seemed to be very understanding, and put me on an earlier schedule upon hearing about the conflict
