Morgan Stanley Remodels Offices in an Effort to Roll Out Tech-Friendly Workspaces

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Morgan Stanley has announced that approximately 1.2 million square feet (111,000 square meters) of office space will get an overhaul in the next 15 months as a result of changes in how its brokers, traders, and bankers interact with the technological side of the company.

Recently, Morgan Stanley's executives approved a project, called "Workplace Evolution," for offices in New York, Houston, Frankfurt, Chicago, Glasgow, Budapest, London, Mumbai, and Bangalore. According to Morgan Stanley, the blueprint for the “Workplace Evolution” project consists of remolding offices to reflect a much more dynamic, millennial type of work atmosphere. 

Additionally, Morgan Stanley anticipates spending $4 billion annually in focusing its efforts on blockchain, automation, and other technologies. This includes Morgan Stanley’s decision to build algorithms and use machine learning to help its 15,000 brokers make trade suggestions for clients.

Morgan Stanley, which has a $2.4 trillion wealth management division and makes 18 million transactions a day on its electronic-trading platform for equities, anticipates the remodeling process to be ongoing as technology continues to rapidly change.
