How Morgan Stanley Helps New Investors Like You

Investing might seem intimidating. But you don’t need to know what an “ETF” or “fixed income security” is to start planning for your future.  Morgan Stanley can help you find the approach that’s right for you.

Finally you're feeling financially secure. But you're ready for more. Ready to keep learning, and ready to grow what you've earned. That's where Morgan Stanley can help. We have solutions for every type of investor, and can find the approach that's right for you. The simplest way to get started is an E*TRADE Online Brokerage Account, where you can build your own investment strategy on their intuitive website and app. Guided by the trading tools and educational content, it's an easy way to take control of your finances–without any account minimums or commission fees. Maybe you'd like to be a bit more hands-off. That's where E*TRADE Core Portfolios comes in.  With Core Portfolios, you'll get automated support from their Robo-Advisor, who will match you to a diversified portfolio of exchange-traded funds. After a five-minute questionnaire, we can quickly start working toward specific goals. Over time, Core Portfolios automatically realigns your investments. If you're looking for more personalized advice and guidance, then a Morgan Stanley Virtual Advisor might be the right choice. This option empowers you to speak with a team of Advisors over the phone, where we can help you create a comprehensive investment plan without the traditional costs of a dedicated Financial Advisor. And if you'd prefer to develop a one-on-one relationship with a Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor, we'll match you with just the right person. An experienced professional you can meet with regularly to help you navigate complex life events like retirement and estate planning and create a tax-efficient investment portfolio. Wherever you are on your financial journey, Morgan Stanley has investing options for you.
