Unfortunately, even with all of their discussion of procedures and their quite detailed environmental policy statement, Morgan Stanley offers almost no quantitative data. They mention reductions in their CO2 output, but fail to report what that output is. They also lack data on most of the other quantitative fields, such as turnover rate, age, gender and race distributions, and water and paper usage. The strength of their report lies in the detail with which they layed out their policy. It covers everything from biodiversity and habitat preservation to rules concerning financing of companies which fail to meet certain guidelines. A consolidated report with a quantitative report of their impact would yield a much stronger score. Analyzed by William P. Alston, and posted to the web on 6/8/2007.
One of the world's top investment banks, Morgan Stanley serves up a whole smorgasbord of financial services. The company operates through four primary business segments, institutional securities (capital raising, corporate lending, financial advisory services for corporate and institutional investors); global wealth management group (brokerage and investment advisory services, and financial planning for individual investors and small-to-medium businesses); asset management (asset management services in alternative investments, equity, fixed income); and Discover Financial Services (Discover-branded credit cards).
