Morgan Stanley’s IM Business Rejigs, $500 Billion by 2016

New York

As of December 31, 2014, Morgan Stanley Investment Management reported US$ 403 billion in assets under management (AUM). This is compared to US$ 377 billion in AUM from December 31, 2013. Morgan Stanley Investment Management, which touts clients such as pensions, insurance companies, endowments and sovereign wealth funds, continues to compete for growing AUM in an increasingly tighter regulatory environment for U.S. banks. In a bid to enhance profits, Morgan Stanley is keen on expanding its investment management business. Morgan Stanley Investment Management President Gregory Fleming wants to have assets under management increase to US$ 500 million by 2016. To do this, Fleming is moving the alternative investment businesses into one leadership structure and hiring more portfolio managers from the buy-side such as Greg Finck from Fortress Investment Group LLC and Jens Nystedt from Moore Capital Management LLC.

Without taking into account Morgan Stanley acquiring asset managers to boost assets under management, it wouldn’t be until the first quarter of 2018 when Morgan Stanley would surpass US$ 500 billion in assets under management.
