Morgan Stanley

Firm Profile

Morgan Stanley and Graystone Consulting provide industry-leading
retirement strategies for every client and individual we serve. Our
commitment to Plan Sponsors is to provide objectivity, independence,
transparency, and maintain high standards of professional conduct in
the services we provide. We consult on the needs of both Plan Sponsors
and their employees. We help Plan Sponsors advance their retirement
programs through insight on investments, plan features, participant
behavior and regulatory updates.

Backed by the global resources of Morgan Stanley and with specific
training in the standards of financial prudence and fiduciary requirements
Plan Sponsors must meet, a Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor can provide
Plan Sponsors with a reliable process to create and regularly update
their plan’s investment policy statement, choose and monitor the plan’s
investments, conduct service provider searches, provide customized
benchmarking reports, and share best practices in working with an
investment committee.

Our goal is to help Plan Sponsors deliver a robust set of investment
choices and a first-class experience to plan participants. Value and service
excellence are core to our goals for Plan Sponsors and their employees.
