Possible ASX-listed investment fund

17 January 2005

Macquarie Bank Limited (Macquarie) said today that its Investment Banking Group (IBG) was investigating the possible establishment of a new ASX-listed investment fund.

No firm decision has yet been made to proceed with such a capital raising or to seek an ASX listing for such an entity.

If a decision is taken by Macquarie to proceed with a capital raising, the fund would utilise the capital raised to invest globally on a broad basis alongside Macquarie clients, including Macquarie Group managed funds, and Macquarie Bank.

Macquarie will keep the market informed in the event that IBG plans to proceed with this proposed float.
