"Commitment is what transforms a promise into realityAbraham Lincoln
It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions
And the actions that speak louder than words
It is making time when there is none
Coming through time after time, year after year
Commitment is the stuff character is made of,
The power to change the face of things
It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism "
Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Macquarie acts on behalf of institutional, corporate and retail clients and counterparties around the world. Founded in 1969, Macquarie now employs more than 13,900 people in 28 countries and had $396 billion in assets under management as of March 2014.
Macquarie Capital, a Macquarie Group subsidiary, is a global specialist in infrastructure and has been at the forefront of infrastructure finance for more than a decade. Macquarie identified early the potential of harnessing private investment to help meet global needs for infrastructure acquisition, funding and management. In the U.S., Macquarie Capital has played a leading role in developing public-private partnerships for infrastructure, participating in groundbreaking transactions involving, among others, the Chicago Skyway, the North Tarrant Expressway and the Denver Fastracks commuter rail project. Recently, Macquarie Capital and their North American partner, First Solutions proposed to finance and operate the Kentucky NG-KIH project as a public-private partnership. Macquarie’s proposal represents a new type of public-private partnership for the U.S. telecom market, and thus opens up potential new avenues for FTTH funding.
