Long-term Macquarie executive to step down

Macquarie has announced that its head of commodities and global markets and long-term executive committee member will step down from his role and from the committee at the end of this week.

Andrew Downe, who first joined Macquarie in 1985, is currently head of commodities and global markets (CGM) and has been a member of the executive committee since 1997.

He is to step down from both his roles on 31 March 2019.

While he will leave his role as head of CGM – which brings together Macquarie’s execution, research, derivatives, trading, fixed income, foreign exchange and commodities businesses to provide clients with an end-to-end service across global markets – Mr Downe will continue to lead the cash equities business globally and retain regional leadership for CGM in Asia.

As of 31 March 2019, Nicholas O’Kane will become group head of CGM, following two years of transition in anticipation of this change.
