    Are Equity Markets’ Valuations Stretched?

    The International Monetary Fund (or IMF) also warned that the downside risks to world financial stability have increased over the past six months. In this context, it added, “Valuations of risky assets are still stretched, with some late-stage credit cycle dynamics emerging, reminiscent of the pre-crisis period.” This it believes could lead to the unwinding of risks, leading to higher risk premiums and repricing of risky assets. The IMF’s view of US equity markets is similar to that of Morgan Stanley’s (MS).

    Wall Street regulator sanctions Tezos cryptocurrency project co-founder

    A Wall Street regulator has suspended the co-founder of the controversial Tezos cryptocurrency project from associating with broker-dealers for two years, part of a settlement to resolve allegations that he made false statements about his side venture while working at Morgan Stanley (MS.N). The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) fined Arthur Breitman $20,000 for the alleged violations, which he neither admitted nor denied, in an agreement dated April 18. The action follows a Reuters investigation (https://reut.rs/2gPOMNH) published in October that found Breitman, a French citizen registered with FINRA, had not reported any outside business activities while working at Morgan Stanley in 2014 and 2015 when he was developing and pitching Tezos.

    U.S. SEC proposes rule to combat conflicted investment advice

    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday proposed a new rule that would require brokers at firms like Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management to clearly explain the fees investors pay and commissions brokers earn when giving financial advice. The 1,000-page Regulation Best Interest would require brokerages to put that information, along with any conflicts of interest and questions clients should ask, in a four-page disclosure document that brokers would be required to give investors. The rule comes after more than a decade of regulatory deliberation over how to address conflicts of interest in the investment advice industry.
