On March 1, 2021, Morgan Stanley closed on its planned acquisition of a publicly traded asset manager, Eaton Vance. The $7-billion deal boosted Morgan Stanley's wealth management and investment management segments to a combined $5.4 trillion in client assets.
Morgan Stanley Investment Management is the asset management arm of the publicly traded, New York City-based investment bank. (The parent firm, a Wall Street giant, is the parent of the Morgan Stanley wirehouse, a key distribution ally to fundsters.)
On June 1, 2010, Morgan Stanley sold off a retail asset management business, including Van Kampen, to Invesco. The deal, priced at $1.5 billion, gave Morgan Stanley a 9.4 percent stake in the combined mutual fund firm, so the investment bank and wirehouse is not completely cut off from its old mutual fund business. Morgan Stanley retained its institutional asset management business after the sale.
