Summary

Morgan Stanley is a US-based financial services provider that operates three main business segments. The company's wealth management segment, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management (MSWM), is comprised of 15,000 financial advisors in four regions around the world, offering various financial and advisory services, wealth planning, insurance products, and retirement services. Led by Colm Kelleher, MSWM continues to display strong performance both in revenues and contribution to Morgan Stanley group revenues. Morgan Stanley targets HNW clients and UHNW individuals with more than $20m in liquid assets through its Private Wealth Management brand. The division also pursues niche audience segments such as athletes and celebrities. MSWM has not been involved in MandA activity since May 2014, when the company sold its Swiss private banking operations to Safra Group. However, the company continues to grow its client base through new products as well as digital platforms.

Key Findings


  • Morgan Stanley remains present in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa but has significantly reduced its global footprint. In June 2016 Morgan Stanley opened a third office in Miami to serve clients residing in Latin America, allowing the company to meet the needs of clients with offshore wealth.

  • As part of the company's strategic update, CEO James Gorman has presented the next phase of Project Streamline 2016-2017, an initiative that focuses on reducing expenditures across Morgan Stanley. The project aims to achieve this through five main pillars, including structurally simplifying the organization and outsourcing.

  • In 2015 MSWM improved its cost/revenue ratio, reflective of the company's goal of cutting costs and shifting focus towards its more stable wealth management division.

  • The company focuses on products that resonate with a range of client interests and lifestyles, such as its Catholic Values investing tool kit and discounts through its Reserved Living and Giving program.

  • Morgan Stanley has a strong presence on social media platforms. Since mid-2014 Morgan Stanley advisors who have undergone an online training course and have at least 15 followers are allowed to generate tweets for the company's official account.
