Explore Our Funds

Essential to the Morgan Stanley Pathway Funds is the Morgan Stanley Wealth Management (Wealth Management) Investment Solutions Committee’s exclusive process used to identify and select the sub-advisers for the funds. It begins with a screening system conducted by Wealth Management’s broader Global Investment Manager Analysis team that narrows the universe of more than 14,000 investment advisers registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and with state regulatory agencies. After the managers have been selected, the Investment Solutions Committee’s team of analysts continues to monitor each sub-adviser and fund for its investment quality.

Every manager is further evaluated by a team of investment professionals who examines each manager to confirm that they have the right mix of skills and capabilities to meet the rigid standards of our program.

The result is a suite of style-driven mutual funds that are appropriate for any investor.

About the Investment Solutions Committee

In addition to the evaluation process conducted by Wealth Management’s broader Global Investment Manager Analysis team, every manager ultimately chosen as a sub-adviser to the Morgan Stanley Pathway Funds has been further evaluated by the Wealth Management Investment Solutions Committee. The committee comprises experts who examine the fund managers who have passed the screen to determine which have the best mix of skills and capabilities for a multi-disciplinary program. The analysts consider many criteria including: past performance, style consistency, personnel tenure, and concordance with other managers of the same fund. Among other things, multiple managers should be diversifying (within the same style) rather than duplicating efforts.
