Morgan Stanley’s third-quarter results showed that the wirehouse firm, which previously ran its wealth-management operations under the Morgan Stanley Smith Barney brand, had 16,829 advisors as of Sept. 30. This figure is down 1% from 16,934 in the second quarter and 5% from 17,661 a year ago.
Average yearly fees and commissions (or production) per Morgan Stanley rep, though, rose 2% from the second quarter and 9% from a year ago to $790,000.
This figure falls below the $910,000 average of Merrill Lynch’s advisors, which number 16,076 (excluding those in consumer and business banking) as of Sept. 30. (Merrill’s production level, however, is down slightly from the previous quarter and last year.)
