media release (17-177MR)

Macquarie Equities remediation program - update


ASIC notes that the remediation program established by Macquarie Equities Limited (MEL) under its Enforceable Undertaking with ASIC (see 13-010MR and 14-201MR) is substantially complete.

Since the remediation program was established in 2014, MEL has paid approximately $24.7m of compensation (including interest) to 263 clients.

A small number of cases have not been finalised - typically because they are the subject of litigation or a current FOS complaint.

ASIC acknowledges the cooperation and responsiveness of MEL during the remediation program.
