Department Profile:
The Finance Division reports to the Chief Financial Officer and consists of some 3,000 employees worldwide. Finance protects the Morgan Stanley franchise by serving as guardian of the Firm's books and records, and by contributing to firm-wide risk management and risk reduction. The Global Treasurer manages Corporate Treasury, a department consisting of approximately 130 employees globally, and reports directly to the Chief Financial Officer. Within the Finance Division, Corporate Treasury plays a critical role as an advisor to Morgan Stanley's various businesses and its senior management team.

Corporate Treasury manages the Firm's liquidity and capital resources and accesses funding markets to support the Firm's business-as-usual business objectives and stressed liquidity requirements. In addition, Corporate Treasury maintains relationships with the Firm's industry and government regulators, coordinates its relationships with rating agencies, lenders and creditors, manages the Firm's structural foreign exchange and interest rate exposures, and serves as a conduit of financial information to the outside investment and regulatory community.

Corporate Treasury's policies and strategy are informed in part by the regulatory landscape in which the Firm currently operates. Corporate Treasury provides essential information to the Firm's business units regarding cost allocation for financial resources; establishes and maintains the Firm's liquidity, unsecured funding and capital policies and procedures; and reports regularly on liquidity, funding and capital issues to various internal risk and control committees, bank regulatory bodies, as well as to the Firm's Board of Directors.

Corporate Treasury is structured into multiple areas of expertise, including funding, liquidity planning, liquidity management, risk management, legal entity management and strategy and operations management. The Corporate Treasury function operates primarily in New York, London, Hong Kong and Japan, with additional presence in Zurich, Frankfurt, Moscow, Budapest and Shanghai.
