THE DISTILLERY: Macquarie's chief moves

Jotters speculate on why Macquarie shifted over $4 billion, and home in on Elmer Funke Kupper's regulatory stance.

One business commentator has decided to dig beneath the surface of what appears to be a routine move and finds a lead on who might be the bank’s next chief executive. It pays to remember that a billion dollars is still a lot of money.

Also this morning, two writers ponder the position that ASX chief executive Elmer Funke Kupper has in the financial regulatory debate, along with the one he’s crafting for himself.
