Basel III Pillar 3 Disclosures required by the Federal Reserve

U.S. Basel III requires banking organizations that calculate risk-based capital ratios using an advanced internal ratings-based approach for calculating credit risk-weighted assets ("RWAs") and advanced measurement approaches for calculating operational RWAs, as supplemented by advanced market RWAs calculated under Basel III, including Morgan Stanley, to make qualitative and quantitative disclosures regarding their capital and RWAs on a quarterly basis ("Pillar 3 Disclosures"). Effective for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, Morgan Stanley's Basel III Pillar 3 Disclosures report contains Pillar 3 Disclosures for its credit, market and operational risks, in accordance with the U.S. Basel III, 12 C.F.R. ยง 217.171 through 217.173 and 217.212. Morgan Stanley's capital, credit risk, securitization and market risk disclosures required by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in its Annual Reports on Form 10-K and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q can be found at 

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 its 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 the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K or its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
