Morgan Stanley’s Global Wealth Management
Group (GWMG) has posted a 6% revenue increase to $13.4bn, up from
$12.6bn in the twelve months since 31 December 2010.

Pre-tax income at Morgan Stanley’s wealth unit
stood at $244m, a 33% quarter-on-quarter fall and a 37% slump on a
year-on-year basis.

Morgan Stanley said that its revenue increase
reflected higher asset management and net interest revenues, partly
offset by lower principle trading and investment banking


Slight dip in AuM revenue 

However, in the final quarter of 2011 Morgan
Stanley’s wealth arm generated total revenue of $3.3bn, a figure
unchanged since 30 September 2011 and 3% less than the $3.4bn
generated in the last quarter of 2010.
