A Market Leader in Sustainable Investing

Vice Chairman Tom Nides discusses how the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing is building innovative, scalable financial solutions.

Meeting the global challenges ahead requires the capital and financial acumen to bring innovative solutions to scale. That is why we created the Institute for Sustainable Investing and our Investing with Impact Platform. The platform enables clients to choose investments seeking to deliver positive environmental or social impact - as well as financial performance. The Firm has set a five-year goal of $10 billion in total client assets through the Investing with Impact Platform. Additionally, through the Institute, Morgan Stanley will invest $1 billion to preserve and enhance quality, affordable housing - which serves as the bedrock of strong communities.

“Morgan Stanley is about being a market leader in sustainable investing, and that's what we intend to do.” — Tom Nides, Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley
