May 14, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2018--Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) today announced the launch of its Amazon Alexa capabilities, expanding our digital ecosystem to include three skills that will make Morgan Stanley’s market insights and ideas available on all Alexa-enabled devices. Listeners can access the latest timely insights drawn from our leading Equity and Fixed Income Research as well as our podcasts and other original content.

“Expanding our digital reach is about taking Morgan Stanley insights from across the Firm and delivering them to our clients on the platforms they already use,” said Michele Davis, Global Head of Corporate Affairs.

Morgan Stanley launched two flash briefings and a custom skill:

“Alexa, play my flash briefing.”

The Morgan Stanley Ideas Briefing offers the latest insights and dynamic analysis on emerging trends and market developments. Thoughts on the Market features commentary from Chief U.S. Equity Strategist and Chief Investment Officer for Institutional Securities and Wealth Management, Mike Wilson, and other thought leaders.

“Alexa, open Morgan Stanley”

Our custom skill allows clients to access the flash briefing content as well as original content such as “Get to Know Morgan Stanley,” an audio clip describing our culture and what it’s like to work with Morgan Stanley and “Jargon Buster,” a jeopardy-style financial term game.

“This new channel will allow us to easily and quickly share valuable Morgan Stanley insights,” said Mike Wilson, Chief U.S. Equity Strategist and Chief Investment Officer for Institutional Securities and Wealth Management. “Incorporating our latest thought leadership into voice assistants is part of how we are adapting to client needs and integrating ourselves into how people increasingly consume information today.”

Morgan Stanley plans to unveil additional Alexa skills over the next few years. Learn more about our skills at morganstanley.com/alexa.
