On Friday the 6th July 2016 Macquarie Group Ltd (MQG) reported a statutory net profit after tax of $2.06 billion for the full year (FY16). This result was slightly ahead of market consensus and up 29% since FY15. Macquarie Group Limited (MQG) is a unique issuer in the domestic landscape and is self-regulated in its own unique manner. From a credit risk perspective, we believe the group was in a very strong capital position but the self-regulation and lack of transparency make us take a more cautious approach.
