Mr Warne described Mr Stevens as an “internationally respected central banker who has contributed significantly to Australia’s economic success”.

“He brings a unique perspective to our boards, not only regarding the drivers of Australia’s economy but also those of the international economies from which Macquarie derives the majority of its income,” Mr Warne said.

Mr Stevens’ appointment came as Macquarie Group announced a $1.25 billion half-year net profit, up by 19 per cent on the prior corresponding period.
