Federal Reserve says no objections to Morgan Stanley capital plan

WASHINGTON, March 2 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve on Thursday said that it will not object to a fresh capital plan Morgan Stanley submitted to the central bank.

In June, the Fed faulted the investment bank for not having a satisfactory capital plan and asked for a new proposal.

"The Federal Reserve Board on Thursday announced that it will not object to a resubmitted capital plan from Morgan Stanley, as a result of progress made by the firm in addressing deficiencies," the central bank said in a statement.
