Investor Relations

By putting clients first, leading with exceptional ideas, doing the right thing, and giving back, Morgan Stanley aims to deliver results today, while setting strategic goals for the future.

The following table presents an index of Morgan Stanley's risk and capital disclosures in the 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K and the Basel III Pillar 3 Disclosure Report for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2017.

Morgan Stanley's Pillar 3 Disclosures are not required to be, and have not been, audited by an independent registered public accounting firm. Morgan Stanley's Pillar 3 Disclosures were based on our current understanding of U.S. Basel III and other factors, which may be subject to change as additional clarification and implementation guidance from regulators relating to U.S. Basel III are received, and as the interpretation of the final rule evolves over time. Some measures of exposures may not be consistent with U.S. GAAP, and may not be comparable with measures reported in Morgan Stanley's Annual Reports on Form 10-K or Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
