History[edit] See also: JPMorgan Chase
JPMorgan Chase
and J.P. Morgan & Co. 1935–1950[edit] Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
traces its roots in the history of J.P. Morgan & Co. Following the Glass–Steagall Act, it was no longer possible for a corporation to have investment banking and commercial banking businesses under a single holding entity. J.P. Morgan & Co. chose the commercial banking business over the investment banking business. As a result, some of the employees of J.P. Morgan & Co., most notably Henry S. Morgan and Harold Stanley, left J.P. Morgan & Co. and joined some others from the Drexel partners to form Morgan Stanley. The firm formally opened the doors for business on September 16, 1935, at Floor 19, 2 Wall Street, New York City. Within its first year, it achieved 24% market share (US$1.1 billion) among public offerings. The firm was involved with the distribution of 1938 US$100 million of debentures for the United States Steel Corporation as the lead underwriter. The firm also obtained the distinction of being the lead syndicate in the 1939 U.S. rail financing. The firm went through a major reorganization in 1941 to allow for more activity in its securities business.[3] 1950–1990[edit] The firm was led by Perry Hall, the last founder to lead Morgan Stanley, from 1951 until 1961. During this period the firm co-managed the World Bank's US$50 million triple-A-rated bonds offering of 1952, as well as coming up with General Motors' US$300 million debt issue, US$231 million IBM
IBM
stock offering, and the US$250 million AT&T's debt offering.[3] Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
credits itself with having created the first viable computer model for financial analysis in 1962,[3] thereby starting a new trend in the field of financial analysis. Future president and chairman Dick Fisher contributed to the computer model as a young employee, learning the FORTRAN and COBOL programming languages at IBM.[4] In 1967 it established the Morgan & Cie, International
International
in Paris in an attempt to enter the European securities market. It acquired Brooks, Harvey & Co., Inc. in 1967 and established a presence in the real estate business. By 1971 the firm had established its Mergers & Acquisitions business along with Sales & Trading. The sales and trading business is believed to be the brainchild of Bob Baldwin.[3] 1991–present[edit]

In 1996 Morgan Stanley

acquired Van Kampen American Capital. On February 5, 1997 the company merged with Dean Witter Reynolds
Dean Witter Reynolds
and Discover & Co., the spun-off financial services business of Sears Roebuck. Dean Witter's Chairman
Chairman
and CEO, Philip J. Purcell, held the same roles in the newly merged " Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
Dean Witter Discover & Co.". In 1998 the name was changed to " Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
Dean Witter & Co.", and in late 2001 "Dean Witter" was dropped and the firm became "Morgan Stanley". Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
had offices located on 24 floors across buildings 2 and 5 of the World Trade Center in New York City. These offices had been inherited from Dean Witter which had occupied the space since the mid-1980s. The firm lost thirteen employees during the September 11 attacks in 2001 (Thomas F. Swift, Wesley Mercer, Jennifer de Jesus, Joseph DiPilato, Nolbert Salomon, Godwin Forde, Steve R. Strauss, Lindsay C. Herkness, Albert Joseph, Jorge Velazquez, Titus Davidson, Charles Laurencin and Security Director Rick Rescorla) in the towers, while 2,687 were successfully evacuated by Rick Rescorla. The surviving employees moved to temporary headquarters in the vicinity. In 2005 Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
moved 2,300 of its employees back to lower Manhattan, at that time the largest such move.[5] Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
has long had a dominant role in technology investment banking and, in addition to Apple and Facebook, served as lead underwriter for many of the largest global tech IPOs, including: Netscape, Cisco, Compaq, Broadcast.com, Broadcom Corp, VeriSign, Inc., Cogent, Inc., Dolby Laboratories, Priceline, Salesforce, Brocade, Google
Google
and Groupon. In 2004, the firm led the Google
Google
IPO, the largest Internet IPO in U.S. history. In the same year Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
acquired the Canary Wharf Group. The company found itself in the midst of a management crisis starting in March 2005[6] that resulted in a loss of a number of the firm's staff.[7] Purcell resigned as CEO of Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
in June 2005 when a highly public campaign against him by former Morgan Stanley partners[8][9] threatened to disrupt and damage the firm and challenged his refusal to aggressively increase leverage, increase risk, enter the sub-prime mortgage business and make expensive acquisitions, the same strategies that forced Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
into massive write-downs, related to the subprime mortgage crisis, by 2007.[10] On December 19, 2006, after reporting 4th quarter earnings, Morgan Stanley announced the spin-off of its Discover Card
Discover Card
unit. The bank completed the spinoff of Discover Financial
Discover Financial
on June 30, 2007.[11] In order to cope with the write-downs during the subprime mortgage crisis, Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
announced on December 19, 2007 that it would receive a US$5 billion capital infusion from the China Investment Corporation in exchange for securities that would be convertible to 9.9% of its shares in 2010.[12] The bank's Process Driven Trading unit was amongst several on Wall Street caught in a short squeeze, reportedly losing nearly $300 million in one day. One of the stocks involved in this squeeze, Beazer Homes USA, was a component of the then-bulging real estate bubble. The bubble's subsequent collapse was considered to be a central feature of the financial crisis of 2007–2010.[13] The bank was contracted by the United States Treasury
United States Treasury
in August 2008 to advise the government on potential rescue strategies for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.[14] Morgan Stanley

and Nomura.[16] At one point, Hank Paulson offered Morgan Stanley

at no cost, but Jamie Dimon refused the offer.[17] Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
and Goldman Sachs, the last two major investment banks in the US, both announced on September 22, 2008 that they would become traditional bank holding companies regulated by the Federal Reserve.[18] The Federal Reserve's approval of their bid to become banks ended the ascendancy of securities firms, 75 years after Congress separated them from deposit-taking lenders, and capped weeks of chaos that sent Lehman Brothers
Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc. into bankruptcy and led to the rushed sale of Merrill Lynch
Merrill Lynch
& Co. to Bank
Bank
of America Corp.[19] Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Japan's largest bank, invested $9 billion in Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
on September 29, 2008.[20] This represented the single largest physical check signed, delivered and cashed.[21] Concerns over the completion of the Mitsubishi deal during the October 2008 stock market volatility caused a dramatic fall in Morgan Stanley's stock price to levels last seen in 1994. It recovered once Mitsubishi UFJ's 21% stake in Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
was completed on October 14, 2008.[22][23][24][25] Morgan Stanley
