Morgan Stanley ponders its property
After building one of the biggest, most prestigious real-estate-investing businesses on Wall Street, Morgan Stanley is weighing plans to scale it back. The firm is considering what to do with its family of funds known as Msref, according to people familiar with the matter. One option could be to reduce its own capital in the funds, while another could be to sell them, the people said. They emphasize that planning is in the early stages and no decisions have been made.
