Morgan Stanley has announced a two year partnership with children’s charity NSPCC after a vote by its employees.
The partnership aims to raise £500,000, which will then be matched by the Morgan Stanley International Foundation.
"Our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work has long been embedded in our culture and we are extremely proud to partner with the NSPCC,” said Robert Rooney, CEO of Morgan Stanley International.
The fundraising objective comes after events in 2016, when NSPCC took part in the Morgan Stanley UK Strategy Challenge, with teams of Morgan Stanley employees paired with non-profit organisations in London for eight weeks to provide pro bono strategic advice.
The team advising NSPCC developed a far-reaching strategy around the charity’s vision to expand its programme of therapeutic services for children who have been sexually abused. The current NSPCC plans are built using many elements of this work, and the charity has said that it sees this partnership and continuing the journey with Morgan Stanley.
