Martin Currie Australia

Leading innovator of Australian Equity, Real Asset and Multi-Asset Strategies.

Martin Currie Australia strategies

Since our genesis in 1949 as Australia's first merchant bank, Australian United Corporation, Martin Currie Australia (MCA) has enjoyed a long history in active funds management.

Today, as part of the broader Martin Currie business, and as a Specialist Investment Manager (SIM) within Franklin Resources Inc., we have evolved into a A$6 billion* manager of Australian Equity, Listed Real Asset and Multi-Asset strategies

Our consistent investment philosophy and process is applied to an extensive range of investment products, and we  are keenly focused on building tailored investment options aligned to client needs.

Fundamental Insights for targeted client outcomes

Whether we are providing a sufficient retirement income stream, wealth accumulating portfolios with differing risk profiles, portfolios with client-specific exclusions or low carbon, we believe that flexibility is necessary to help our clients pursue their financial goals.

Stewardship is a critical element of our investment philosophy across all our strategies, and our Active Ownership approach, which includes ESG integration, engagement and voting, is embedded directly into our investment process.
