2 Morgan Stanley is committed to harnessing the power of the capital markets to provide innovative, scalable solutions that foster sustainable growth and opportunity for all stakeholders. James P. Gorman President and Chief Executive Officer Lead with integrity. The first of Morgan Stanley s guiding principles, these words underpin our actions and shape the vision of sustainability that we bring to our clients, our colleagues and our communities. At Morgan Stanley, we consider sustainability broadly in our daily work: It informs the way we evaluate companies, transactions and risk; how we advise our clients and collaborate with our financing partners and employees; how we conduct our own operations and participate in our communities; and how we promote and develop new market opportunities. Our strength the talent, drive and integrity of more than 62,000 employees in 42 countries allows us to work across borders and industries to develop and finance innovative solutions to seemingly intractable challenges as varied as financing the refurbishment of aging affordable housing stock and the development of renewable energy sources. We believe in taking a long-term view, and our sustainability initiatives reflect that. Our broad engagement delivers multiple bottom-line returns protecting the environment, building our communities and reducing poverty while delivering robust business results. Morgan Stanley has a long, proud history of leadership in business and in the communities where we live and work. By focusing on activities that deliver long-term sustainable value to all of our stakeholders, we will ensure that we remain a leader in a rapidly changing world.

3 Sustainability at Morgan Stanley Morgan Stanley is committed to a broad vision of sustainability that encompasses the long-term financial, environmental and social impact of our activities. Through both our client-facing work and our own operations, our integrated approach draws on our unique skills and commercial reach to build environmental and social considerations into the decisions we make. Morgan Stanley s sustainability activities are guided by an Advisory Board comprised of firm leaders whose efforts strengthen our practices both within and outside the firm. Externally, we work with nongovernmental organizations, governments, nonprofits, businesses and investors to focus attention on vital environmental and social issues that will have lasting impact. Within the firm, we have leading franchises in key areas, including renewable energy and clean technology, real estate investment, commodities trading, housing finance and microfinance. Our robust risk management processes and training help ensure that we monitor risk and drive sustainability best practices throughout the firm. We continue to explore ways better to mobilize the power of the capital markets to achieve sustainability, believing that the right business models for the future will enable us to meet the global challenges ahead for our clients, our communities and our employees. sustainability

4 Environment Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves Morgan Stanley is a Founding Partner of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a new public-private partnership that aims to develop a global commercial market for clean, efficient stoves. The Alliance is striving to facilitate the adoption of 100 million clean stoves by the year 2020 to alleviate many of the environmental, social and health issues stemming from the use of traditional cookstoves and open fires. Through our diverse lines of business, Morgan Stanley places a priority on supporting activities and companies that promote protection of the environment. We seek to understand and mitigate the environmental risks that we may face, and we encourage our clients to do the same. In 2010, our clean technology investment banking team intermediated more than $5.5 billion in securities in the cleantech sector, earning recognition from the San Francisco Business Times as the go-to cleantech investment bank. In the real estate sector, Morgan Stanley invests directly in environmentally sustainable building projects. Green factors are also built into our real estate investing and asset management strategies, recognizing that energy efficiency, environmental improvements and energy audits can positively impact both sustainability and returns on investment. Our community development programs incorporate environmental considerations, and we have invested in and financed energy efficiency upgrades and solar installations in low- and moderate-income communities, reducing energy costs and creating a healthier environment for those most in need. 3 sustainability 2010

6 30 INSTITUTIONS A pioneer in microfinance, we have intermediated more than $550 million of microfinance securities for more than 30 microfinance institutions worldwide since 2006

7 Social Finance Morgan Stanley s global social finance activities facilitate the flow of capital between investors, intermediaries and businesses that deliver basic services to poor and disadvantaged communities, generating both financial and social returns. A pioneer in microfinance, we have cumulatively intermediated more than $550 million of microfinance securities to the benefit of more than 30 microfinance institutions (MFIs) serving several million low-income micro-entrepreneurs worldwide. A hallmark of our work in the sector continues to be the first time nature of our transactions. We measure the scope of our social finance activities by the reach of our expertise, as well as by the volume of our transactions. We are increasingly engaged in discussions with institutional investors seeking to allocate capital to social finance and work closely to position the industry as an attractive investment opportunity in which the sector s social mission enhances its commercial value proposition. Morgan Stanley recently sponsored a report by the International Association of Microfinance Investors that examined the handling of debt defaults by MFIs. Morgan Stanley Social Enterprise Strategy Challenge Our annual Strategy Challenge brings together cross-divisional teams of employees to provide nonprofits with the critical business advice they need to become more efficient, effective and sustainable. The Strategy Challenge culminates in a daylong competition, and the top three teams are presented awards by President and CEO James Gorman. In 2010, Morgan Stanley employees engaged with 12 New York nonprofits, contributing more than 5,400 hours of pro bono service. The winning team worked with Pro Mujer, a MFI that works with women in Latin America. sustainability

8 Community Development Morgan Stanley SBA 504 Program With the U.S. Small Business Administration and community bank partners, we have pledged up to $500 million to increase the loan capital available to small businesses nationwide for commercial real estate investments and job creation. By extending financing for small businesses, Morgan Stanley reaffirms our commitment to put our financial capabilities to work to benefit communities. As cash-strapped small businesses access the capital resources they need, they can reinvest in their businesses, creating jobs and helping build economically vibrant communities. We are committed to helping build communities in which all people have opportunities for economic success and personal advancement. As part of this commitment in the U.S., we work actively with national and local partners to strengthen low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, investing both intellectual and financial capital to provide affordable housing loans to developers, increase the impact of public incentives and improve access to capital markets for state and local agencies. With a focus on preserving and building affordable housing, Morgan Stanley aided in the creation or rehabilitation of approximately 3,680 units, creating more than 5,400 construction and permanent jobs in 2010 alone. We also help state and municipal housing finance agencies (HFAs) access capital markets to fund multi-family and single-family affordable housing. In 2010, our Housing Finance Group worked with HFAs across the U.S. to underwrite over $933 million of municipal and state bonds. As a partner of the Living Cities Integration Initiative, we support the provision of loans, grants and Program-Related Investments in five urban regions across the U.S. that are seeking innovative solutions to the many challenges facing low-income residents and communities. 7 sustainability 2010

10 2,500 More than 2,500 Morgan Stanley employees worked on 70 projects to help some of the 17 million children in the U.S. who do not have enough to eat

11 Philanthropy Through our philanthropic activities, we aim to give young people a strong start in life. Our efforts are led by the Morgan Stanley Foundation in the U.S. and its sister organization, the Morgan Stanley International Foundation, in the U.K. In 2010, our commitment, coupled with our employees extensive generosity, delivered nearly $80 million to our communities. Since 1973, our Global Alliance for Children s Health has invested more than $100 million to address preventable illness in young children. Focused on three leading children s medical centers in New York, London and Beijing, we contribute philanthropic funds, volunteer hours and dedicated staff to strengthen these institutions, affecting the lives of thousands of families each year. Each June, Global Volunteer Month encourages employees to get involved. Led by the firm s senior management, nearly 20,000 employees volunteered individually and on more than 900 team projects in 2010, contributing over 130,000 hours of service and benefiting charities in 530 cities around the world. Fill the Plate Launched in September 2010 to combat childhood hunger, our Fill the Plate initiative committed $5 million to ensure that children have nutritious food. More than 2,500 Morgan Stanley employees worked on 70 projects to help some of the 17 million children in the U.S. who do not have enough to eat. During the next two years, we will continue working with our partner, Feeding America, to provide more than 2.5 million meals and 23 million servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. sustainability

They enable us to build lasting relationships and provide innovative financial solutions in dynamic markets. Thus, we strive to hire the most diverse and talented people and provide them with the tools, training and open communication they need to be successful. To attract an exceptional workforce, we have developed programs to recruit the brightest individuals, regardless of their backgrounds. We invest heavily in our colleagues once they are on board, offering a comprehensive curriculum of technical, financial and professional skills courses. Incentives, too, are important, and we offer competitive compensation and benefits, aligning our employment policies with our long-term business strategies and shareholder interests.
