The Operations Spring Insight Program runs for two days in Glasgow and will provide you with an overview of the various departments within Operations in Glasgow and the important role they play at the firm. These departments include Institutional Securities Group Product Operations (ISGPO), Operations Risk and Regulatory Control (ORRC) and Shared Services & Banking Operations (SSBO).

Morgan Stanley Glasgow

In 2000, we founded our Glasgow office with just six employees. Since then, it has grown to more than 1,300 people, making it our second largest location in Europe after London—it’s also 5th largest globally. Our Glasgow office has an ever-expanding range of roles and functions, including Technology, Finance, Operations, and Fund Services. In each department, you’ll find professionals that value individual intellect as much as teamwork.
