NEW YORK (Reuters) – Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS)’s Chief Executive Officer James Gorman said Monday that the blow up of the investing firm Archegos Capital Management earlier this year prompted the bank to review all large, single-name margin positions.
“We’re comfortable with what we’re finding,” Gorman said at a conference hosted by his bank.
Archegos was a client of Morgan Stanley and several other banks. It faced the biggest margin call in history in March when the value of one stock that it had accrued a significant position in suddenly lost value.
