Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

Macquarie Group began trading in 1969 as Hill Samuel Australia, obtained its bank licence in 1985, and listed in 1996. It's Australia's only sizable listed investment bank, now internationally diversified, operating in corporate finance, treasury, commodities, equity markets, and funds management. The firm pioneered the buying of assets and rolling them into funds, providing a captive client for the group. Most of these funds were dissolved during the GFC, but the lucrative income source has been replaced by the growing annuity businesses.
