The bank, in a note to the market, says the short term outlook remains subject to a range of uncertainties including market conditions, the impact of foreign exchange and potential regulatory changes.
Macquarie Bank posted a net profit of $678 million for the half year ended September 30, up 35%.
The bank’s 2015 financial year ends March 31. The 2014 net profit was $1.265 billion.
