Morgan Stanley Tool Can Analyze Asset Allocation Within Funds
September 2, 2002
Morgan Stanley recently unveiled a new tool that is designed to help investors analyze how their assets are allocated.
The product, which is available free to individual investors, is called Asset Scan. It is intended to help investors see where their portfolios may be over- or under-weighted among various asset classes, international markets and industry sectors, the company said. In addition, the tool can analyze stocks within an investor's mutual funds.
Morgan Stanley president John Schaefer said the tool will help investors "protect against market volatility" and will make it "easier to construct a thoughtfully allocated portfolio."
