“The results of the Federal Reserve’s stress test demonstrate the durability of our transformed business model. We remain committed to returning capital to our shareholders and are raising our dividend by 7.5 cents. In addition, we are renewing our previously announced $20 billion multi-year share repurchase authorization. These decisions reflect the resilience of our franchise, particularly Wealth and Investment Management, and our strong capital position,” said James P. Gorman, Chairman and CEO.

Last month, the Federal Reserve System released its CCAR 2023 results, with Morgan Stanley expecting to be subject to a Stress Capital Buffer (SCB) of 5.4% from October 1, 2023, to September 30, 2024.
