Morgan Stanley was the first international financial company to offer mutual funds in India. It was incorporated in 1993 and was operational till 2014. In 2014, Morgan Stanley Mutual Fund handed over all its assets to HDFC Asset Management. The company was subsequently de-registered by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in the same year.
HDFC Asset Management merged with Morgan Stanley in December 2013. The merger, valued at over Rs.3,090 crores, increased the investor and asset base of the largest mutual funds company in India, HDFC Mutual Fund. The merger was largely seen as a consolidation exercise by HDFC in the highly dispersed Indian mutual funds market.
