Overview

Morgan Stanley Investment Management is a leading provider of alternative investment strategies with expertise that spans across private equity, private credit, hedge funds, real estate, infrastructure and managed futures markets. We are dedicated to serving the unique needs of financial advisors and their clients by delivering exceptional portfolios and custom alternative investment programs.

Philosophy

Our alternative investments teams pursue a broad range of strategies in diverse markets and geographies, yet they share a common perspective on value creation. Over the long term, the best means to deliver attractive, uncorrelated returns is to focus on segments where specialized expertise and a partnership approach is rewarded; structural dislocation, capital supply/demand imbalances and complexity prevail; and Morgan Stanley's resources and reputation provide unique sourcing, information and value-creation advantages. We avoid segments where we believe the competition for alpha is high, the supply of capital is abundant and the potential to deliver differentiated strategies and investment opportunities is low.
