Have you ever wondered how banks manage the many evolving risks they face? At Morgan Stanley, our Firm Risk Management Division identifies, measures, monitors, and controls risks. Some of those risks include, but are not limited to, regulatory risk and the risk of financial loss to the Firm and our clients. Through independent assessment of the effectiveness and consistency of risk management processes, we mitigate potential harm to the Firm and our clients.
Our risk departments, called “Risk Stripes”, seek to uphold, and improve different components of our risk framework. We cater the program to each individual and place them in a specific Risk Stripe most well-suited to their abilities and interests.
