In the 10 years since we chose Scotland and Glasgow, it has more than lived up to our expectations. We now have more than 1,000 people in Glasgow, making it our second largest location in Europe after London. They are employed in an ever expanding
range of roles and functions, including operations, IT, and finance, providing support to some of our most important global sales and trading businesses such as cash equities, fixed income, commodities and prime brokerage.
While the business side goes from strength to strength, so we continue to build deeper links with the local community. Since its inception, Morgan Stanley has been committed to being a responsible company. As a Firm, we think it is important to try and improve the quality of life in the communities where our employees live and work. In the last 10 years, employees at the Glasgow office have taken this principle to heart, and we now have a number of major initiatives in place, such as the Princes Trust project and the Career Academy initiative, where the Firm and employees can give something back to the local community. As a Firm, we’re looking forward to the next 10 years.
