- A Morgan Stanley broker who ran Los Angeles-area branches is out amid numerous sexual-harassment claims at branches he managed, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
- The broker, Robert Perry, is not accused of sexual harassment, according to the report.
A broker leading some of Morgan Stanley’s most profitable branches has left the firm amid allegations of sexual harassment at branches he ran, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Robert Perry, who left the investment bank this week after an investigation into his behaviour and management style, managed money for high-net-worth Los Angeles-area clients like Elon Musk and Katy Perry, according to the report.
A Morgan Stanley spokeswoman confirmed Perry’s departure from the firm.
Perry could not be immediately reached for comment.
Over the course of the past year and a half, numerous women have alleged sexual harassment or workplace hostility at the four branches run by Perry, The Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter and court documents. The Journal said Perry had not been accused of any sexual harassment himself.
