Graystone Consulting
Graystone Consulting (“Graystone”) is a separate business unit
of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC (“MSSB”, “we” or “us”),
that focuses on providing a wide range of investment consulting
services to institutional and high net worth individual clients,
including assistance in (i) developing investment policy
statements, (ii) asset allocation, (iii) investment manager, mutual
fund, commingled fund, exchange traded fund (“ETF” and
together with mutual funds and commingled funds, “Funds”) and
alternative investment research, (iv) performance reporting and
(v) custody services. These services are delivered through a
select group of institutional consulting teams located across the
country that have significant experience serving the investment
advisory needs of institutions, as well as high net worth
individual clients, and are supported by a management team
dedicated to institutional consulting. Graystone clients include
corporations, Taft-Hartley plans, foundations and endowments,
public and private defined benefit plans, 401(k) plan sponsors,
family offices and high net worth individuals.
MSSB offers clients (“you”, “your” or “Client”) many different
advisory programs. Many of MSSB’s advisory services are
provided by its Consulting Group business unit (“CG”). You
may obtain Brochures for other MSSB investment advisory
programs at www.morganstanley.com/ADV or by asking your
Financial Advisor or (for Morgan Stanley Private Wealth
Management clients) your Private Wealth Advisor. (Throughout
the rest of this Brochure, “Financial Advisor” means either your
Financial Advisor or your Private Wealth Advisor, as
applicable.)
A.
MSSB Financial Advisors must meet specific eligibility criteria
to become “Graystone Consultants” and be part of a Graystone
team, which typically adheres to the following team structure:

Traditional Institutional Consulting Services
Graystone offers the following
Consulting Services to its clients.
Institutional Consulting Director. Directors oversee an
integrated local consulting team, generally average over 20
years of industry experience, and are responsible for the
team’s investment consulting process throughout the life of
the client relationship.

Consulting Analysts. A key focus of Graystone Consulting
analysts is the evaluation of investment management firms
and Funds. In addition, analysts support asset allocation
and performance monitoring processes. Analysts are trained
in the use of investment analytics tools and are involved in
the preparation of client presentations and performance
reviews.

Operational Support. Team members focus on processing
client agreements and provide general operational and
administrative support on behalf of Graystone clients.
General Description of Programs
traditional
Institutional
Assistance in Preparation of Investment Objectives and
Policies. Graystone shall assist the Client in Client’s review,
evaluation and preparation of investment policies and objectives
for the account. As set forth in “Performance Reporting” below,
Graystone shall assist the Client in developing benchmarks for
the performance of the account. Graystone also will provide the
performance of the total account so as to assist the Client with
the ability to determine progress toward investment objectives.
Graystone has been retained as a non-discretionary investment
consultant. Accordingly, the Client shall be responsible for
monitoring compliance with their investment policies and
guidelines.
Asset Allocation. Graystone reviews the client’s asset allocation
and will make asset allocation recommendations in accordance
with the goals of the client.
MSSB
Investment Searches. Graystone assists the client in identifying
and recommending investment managers and Funds
(“Investment Products”). These recommendations are based
either on (i) MSSB’s Global Investment Manager Analysis
Group (using different methods to evaluate investment
managers, Funds -- analysis on investment managers is provided
through MSSB’s Fiduciary Services (“FS”) and Consulting and
Evaluation Services (“CES”) programs) or (ii) Graystone
analysis conducted on managers and Funds. Graystone analysis
on managers is conducted through its Manager Assessment
Program, a proprietary investment management scoring system
that assesses investment manager products in that database.
Graystone is backed by the resources of MSSB. MSSB is,
among other things, a registered investment adviser, a registered
broker-dealer, a registered futures commission merchant, and a
member of the New York Stock Exchange. MSSB is one of the
largest financial services firms in the country with branch offices
in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Prior to June 28, 2013, MSSB was owned by a joint venture
company which was indirectly owned 65% by Morgan Stanley
(“Morgan Stanley Parent”) and 35% by Citigroup Inc. (“Citi”).
On June 28, 2013, Morgan Stanley Parent purchased Citi’s 35%
4
Graystone teams conduct further analysis in an effort to identify
managers for clients. See Item 6 below for more details.
Graystone Discretionary Services is designed for clients who
wish to have Graystone assume full discretion over asset
allocation rebalancing decisions as well as decisions to terminate
any Investment Option. Graystone also provides the client with
on-going financial management services such as investment
performance reporting, administration, trade execution and
custody.
Based on a client’s long-term strategic policy
allocation parameters and other investment constraints,
Graystone will look for opportunities in asset classes or
investment styles with above average expected rates of return
while managing overall portfolio risk in accordance with the
client’s investment policies.
Depending on applicable legal and regulatory requirements,
clients may invest in certain affiliated and/or unaffiliated
alternative investment vehicles that are followed by MSSB
alternatives research as described in Item 6 (such investments,
together with Investment Products, “Investment Options”).
Non-Researched Managers. Clients also may select investment
managers outside of those covered by MSSB’s Global
Investment Manager Analysis Group, known as “GIMA”
(formerly known as the CG Investment Advisor Research Group
(“CG IAR” group or “IAR”) or Graystone analysis. Such
outside managers, if qualified, will be offered through MSSB’s
Investment Management Services Program (“IMS”). MSSB
does not evaluate or make any representations concerning such
investment managers and shall not assume any liability for any
loss, claim, damage or expense attributable to the client’s
selection of managers not covered by GIMA or Graystone
analysis.
For Participant-Directed Defined Contribution Plans
Graystone also offers both non-discretionary investmentconsulting services and discretionary services for participant
directed defined contribution plans.
Non-Discretionary Investment Consulting for ParticipantDirected Defined Contribution Plans.
Through this non-discretionary program, Graystone Consulting
offers initial and ongoing investment consulting services to Plan
Sponsors, including investment policy statement review, asset
style analysis, mutual fund and ETF search and selection and
performance reporting.
For more information about FS, CES, and IMS or any other
investment advisory services offered by MSSB, as well as
assistance in determining which service may be best suited to
your needs and objectives, please contact your Graystone
Consultant or refer to www.morganstanley.com/ADV.
Investment Consulting Fund Screening Program. For
participant-directed defined contribution plan (“DC Plans”)
sponsor clients, Graystone offers the DC Investment Consulting
Fund Screening Program which is explained further in Item 6A
below.
Performance Reporting. Graystone Consulting provides clients
with customized performance reports that assess portfolio
performance relative to benchmarks. The reports may include
comparisons to recognized benchmarks and market segments.
Risk-Based Models. In addition to providing fund screening
services as explained further in Item 6A below, Graystone may
provide risk-based asset allocation advice to retirement plans
that hold assets in custody at a custodian other than MSSB. If
requested, Graystone will provide plan sponsor clients with
certain strategic asset allocation models (“model portfolios”) that
are prepared by MSSB’s Global Investment Committee (the
“GIC”). A plan sponsor client availing of the model portfolio
service may then make available to participants certain
groupings of Funds that have already been approved by the
client and that are consistent with the components of the model
portfolios selected by the client. As the services are nondiscretionary, the client must make the final choice of Funds to
populate the model portfolio.
Custody and Statements. If selected by you, MSSB may serve
as the custodian of all cash, securities and other assets held in the
portfolio and credit the portfolio with dividends and interest paid
on securities held and with the principal paid on called or
matured securities in the portfolio. You will be provided with
written confirmation of securities transactions, and account
statements at least quarterly.
Graystone Discretionary Services
Graystone also offers through qualified Graystone Consulting
teams and for eligible clients, discretionary institutional
consulting services whereby Graystone is responsible for the
discretionary selection and rebalancing of Investment Options in
accordance with the client’s investment policy statement. Such
discretion is exercised utilizing the resources of MSSB’s Custom
Investment Outsourcing program (“CIO”). The former name of
the program was Fiduciary Asset Management program
(“FAM”). CIO is designed to manage the overall investment
process, including investment policy decisions, asset and
investment style allocation decisions, manager selection, review
and termination, and comprehensive monitoring of the client’s
portfolio. In addition to discretionary investment management,
clients receive custodial services (unless the client elects to use
an outside custodian), trade execution and related services for a
single asset based fee. For more details on CIO, please refer to
the CIO ADV available at www.morganstanley.com/ADV.
It will be the client’s responsibility to ensure model
recommendations by Graystone can be implemented within their
recordkeeping platform. Graystone may assist in determining
the capabilities of the client’s recordkeeping platform, however
it will be the ultimate responsibility of the client to ensure any
recommendations are implemented and offered to participants in
a manner that is consistent with the client’s overall goals and
objectives.
Graystone will provide the client with performance reporting for
such models which will include model performance comprised
of the fund performance within the model. Graystone will also
provide the client with any changes/updates made to the asset
5
allocation percentages within such models within a reasonable
period of time however no more than one calendar quarter.
1) obtaining information from the plan sponsor for
preparation of a Fee and Service Benchmarking
report and
The client will be responsible for making any updates or changes
to such models with its retirement plan provider. If requested,
Graystone may provide education to plan participants in regard
to risk tolerance through various approved educational pieces,
however any such education does not represent any attempt by
Graystone to use discretion or extend its fiduciary liability under
the program client agreement.
2) preparation of and assistance in the review and
evaluation of the Fee and Service Benchmarking
report with the plan sponsor.
Graystone Discretionary Services for Participant-Directed
Defined Contribution Plans
Graystone also offers through qualified Graystone Consulting
teams and for eligible clients, discretionary institutional
consulting services for participant-directed plans whereby
Graystone is responsible for the discretionary selection of
investment options and investment management of asset

policy statement. Such discretion is exercised utilizing the
resources of MSSB’s Global Investment Manager Analysis
Group and Global Investment Committee, The Graystone
Consultant will manage the overall investment process including
decisions for fund selection, review and termination, asset
allocation model services and comprehensive monitoring of the
Plan’s investments. In addition to discretionary investment
management,
clients
may
receive
non-discretionary
administrative services which include assistance with the
development of an investment policy, board education, asset
classification, provider search assistance, fee and service
benchmarking and employee education.
Administrative Services. Graystone may also assist the
retirement plan and other institutional clients with certain
administrative functions as described below. These are not
investment advisory services and MSSB does not assume status
as a fiduciary under ERISA, the Investment Advisers Act of
1940 or any other applicable law or regulation in performing
these services. Graystone Consulting provides the following
administrative services:

Board Education/Asset Classification – Graystone shall
provide the Client with general financial and investment
information relating to such concepts as diversification and
asset classification with respect to various asset classes and
historic rates of return.

Employee Education – Graystone shall provide the Client
and/or its employees with general financial and investment
information relating to such concepts as diversification,
asset allocation and historic rates of return.

If the Client chooses to provide Plan participants with asset
allocation model assistance, MSSB, in addition to fund selection
and monitoring, will provide either strategic risk-based models
or target date model portfolios, collectively, the “Models”. In
both cases, the Models are developed by Morgan Stanley’s
Global Investment Committee, and are not subject to
customization by the Client. Only MSSB Approved Funds will
be permitted to populate these models.
Record Keeper Search Assistance – Graystone may assist
plan sponsors in searches to retain third party record
keepers. This service may be provided to existing clients or
on a one-time basis to plans that are not existing Graystone
clients. In doing so, Graystone will:
1) evaluate the plan sponsor’s needs
Risk-Based Models. Graystone will present the Client with eight
separate risk-based models, as described in the previous section,
of which the client must select at least three Models to be made
available to the Plan’s participants, ranging from most
conservative to more aggressive. The Client will be solely
responsible for selecting at least three models and with each of
the following risk levels represented: conservative, moderate and
aggressive.
2) assist the plan sponsor in preparing a Request for
Proposal (“RFP”)
3) Assist the plan sponsor in soliciting and reviewing
responses from potential providers
4) Assist the plan sponsor in selecting finalists and
5) Provide the plan sponsor with an executive
summary report to assist the plan sponsor in making
its final decision.

Target Date Models. Graystone will present three separate
target-date glidepath models to the client. These glidepaths offer
the option of i) greater hedge against longevity risk and shortfall
risk, ii) greater hedge against inflation risk and market risk, or
iii) a balance between inflation risk and longevity risk. The
Client will be solely responsible for selecting one of the models
to offer the Plan’s participants. Once the Client has selected a
target date model, Graystone will construct the model by
populating each asset class comprising the Model with the
MSSB Approved Funds in a manner consistent with the
components of the Model.
Fee and Service Benchmarking – Graystone may perform a
comparative analysis of fees charged and services provided
by third party service providers and the expenses of funds
that are available to the plan sponsor in order to allow them
to evaluate the level of such fees that they pay relative to
similarly structured and sized retirement plans. This service
may be provided to existing clients or on a one-time basis to
plans that are not clients and Graystone may retain thirdparty firms to assist it in providing this service. The service
shall include the following:
It will be the responsibility of Graystone to ensure that the
Models can be implemented within their recordkeeping
6
platform. Graystone will be responsible in determining the
capabilities of the clients recordkeeping platform and it would be
the ultimate responsibility of Graystone to ensure any
recommendations are implemented and offered to participants in
a manner that is consistent with the clients overall goals and
objectives.
Graystone. Graystone and MSSB shall not be liable for any
misstatement or omission made by a Performance Reporting AI
nor for any loss, liability, claim, damage or expense arising out
of such misstatement or omission. The reporting service is not
intended to constitute investment advice or a recommendation
by Graystone of any alternative investment and Graystone is not
evaluating the appropriateness of the initial investment or the
continued investment in the alternative investments reported on
as a part of this service. In addition, the service does not
constitute, create or impose a fee-based brokerage relationship, a
fiduciary relationship or an investment advisory relationship
under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended, with
regard to the provision of the investments covered under this
service. If the Client is an employee benefit plan or is otherwise
subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of
1974, as amended (“ERISA”), Graystone and MSSB are NOT
acting as a fiduciary (as defined in ERISA) with the respect to
the provision of these reporting services as described herein).
Graystone is not responsible for and will not provide tax
reporting with respect to any alternative investment reported on
under this service.
Risk-Based Models are tools used to assist the plan participants
in achieving asset allocation goals. These models are not
investment products sponsored by Graystone. Client may not
make use of any branding associated with MSSB, the GIC or
any other affiliate when describing the model portfolio.
Termination of contract or model services will require the
discontinuance of use of the models.
Target Date Models are tools used to assist the plan participants
in achieving asset allocation goals. These models are not
investment products sponsored by Graystone. Client may not
make use of any branding or other proprietary information
associated with MSSB,Graystone, the GIC or any other affiliate
when describing the model portfolio. Termination of contract or
model services will require the discontinuance of use of the
models.
Graystone and MSSB do not normally maintain custody of
alternative investments reported on under this service and
therefore such investments are not included under MSSB’s SIPC
coverage. The fee charged to the client in this service does not
include any fee or charge for other services in connection with
the client’s participation in any alternative investment or as may
be charged by a Performance Reporting AI. The client is solely
responsible for such arrangements.
Graystone will provide the Client with performance reporting for
the Models which will include model performance comprised of
the fund performance within the Model. Graystone will also
provide the Client and Recordkeeper with any changes/updates
made to the asset allocation percentages within the Models
within a reasonable period of time however no more than one
calendar quarter.
Asset/Liability Analysis Services Graystone works with third
party vendors, whose proprietary asset/liability modeling
software is used to generate customized asset liability studies for
defined benefit plan clients. The asset/liability analysis service
provides certain cash flow modeling, liability funding analysis
and funding strategies including custom contribution policies.
Other Services
Alternative Investments Performance Reporting Service.
Graystone offers alternative investments performance reporting
capabilities. This is a non-discretionary service, and clients are
responsible for executing participation agreements directly with
each alternative investment. Graystone offers clients the ability
to receive periodic reports that provide historical performance
reporting of their alternative investments that were not
purchased through Graystone and are not researched by
Graystone or MSSB. The alternative investments historical
performance information provided by this service is based upon
information provided, directly or indirectly, to Graystone by the
issuer of the alternative investment, or by its sponsor, investment
manager or administrator (“Performance Reporting AI”).
MSSB’s ability to provide historical or other performance
reporting on alternative investments is dependent upon its ability
to obtain such information from each Performance Reporting AI.
The performance reporting enables the client to receive from
Graystone periodic reports containing the client’s historical
performance information as reported by the applicable
performance reporting AI. Client may also receive composite
reports that show historical performance of alternative
investments as reported by the Performance Reporting AI, along
with historical or other performance information or other
investments that were/are acquired by Graystone, are held in
custody by MSSB or are followed by MSSB research. The
performance information provided in a periodic performance
report is based on information provided to Graystone by the
Performance Reporting AI and is not independently verified by
General Description of All Programs
Unless specified otherwise, this section discusses various
general matters applying to all the programs described in this
Brochure.
Account Opening
To enroll in any program described in this Brochure, you
must enter into the program client agreement (“Client
Agreement”).
Restrictions
The client may impose reasonable restrictions on account
investments. For example, you may restrict Graystone or the
managers from buying specific securities, a category of
securities (e.g., tobacco companies) or Fund shares. If you
restrict a category of securities, we or the manager will
determine which specific securities fall within the restricted
category. In doing so, we or the manager may rely on research
provided by independent service providers. Any restrictions you
impose on individual securities have no effect on Fund holdings
since Funds operate in accordance with the investment
objectives and strategies described in their prospectuses.

CG Trust Services. Accounts outside of CG Trust Services may
be subject to different custody arrangements. MSSB has made
arrangements to have a number of external trust companies
participate in CG Trust Services, as described above. While
these arrangements are designed to enhance the administrative
and operational experience of clients who appoint such an
external trust company and MSSB to service the same assets,
these arrangements could pose a conflict of interest for MSSB
and its representatives by creating an incentive for them to
introduce their clients to those external trust companies who
have such arrangements with CG Trust Services over other
external trust companies.
Trade Confirmations, Account Statements and
Performance Reviews
Unless you have appointed another custodian, MSSB is the
custodian and provides you with written confirmation of
securities transactions, and account statements at least quarterly.
You may waive the receipt of trade confirmations after the
completion of each trade in favor of alternative methods of
communication where available. You may also receive mutual
fund prospectuses, where appropriate. Graystone services are
also provided to clients who engage third-party custodians.
We provide performance monitoring to clients with a frequency
as requested by the client.
The decision to participate in CG Trust Services and the
selection of the trustee and attorney are your decision and
responsibility. MSSB and its affiliates do not provide tax and
legal advice (see: "Tax and Legal Considerations", Item 4(A)
below). For additional information and to determine eligibility,
please contact your Financial Advisor.
Consulting Group Trust Services
The programs described in this Brochure may offer fully
integrated wealth management solutions, which may include
trusts. MSSB does not accept nor will it act as a trustee (an
MSSB affiliate, such as Morgan Stanley Private Bank, National
Association, may be serving as trustee for existing accounts and
is closed to new accounts). In order to offer to you complete
solutions, MSSB has created the Consulting Group Trust
Services Program (“CG Trust Services”) with external trust
companies (including external banks which may serve as a
corporate trustee) to provide trustee services for the assets in
your account while you receive investment advisory services
from MSSB.
Risks
All trading in an account is at your risk. The value of the assets
held in an account is subject to a variety of factors, such as the
liquidity and volatility of the securities markets. Investment
performance of any kind is not guaranteed, and Graystone’s,
MSSB’s, or its employees’ past performance with respect to
other accounts does not predict future performance with respect
to any particular account. In addition, certain investment
strategies that Graystone Consulting may use in the programs
have specific risks, including those associated with investments
in common stock, fixed income securities, American Depositary
Receipts, and Funds. You should consult with your Graystone
Consultant regarding the specific risks associated with the
investments in your account.
To receive trustee services through CG Trust Services, you and
your attorney will create separate agreements with an external
trust company to govern the trust and you will appoint a trustee
to act on your behalf; in certain situations, you may appoint
separate administration and investment trustees. You or your
designees will sign these separate agreements and may pay a
separate fee to your attorney. External trust companies and
MSSB typically charge separate fees to CG Trust Services client
accounts for their respective services, which may be higher than
fees charged to clients outside of the CG Trust Services Program
for comparable services. In certain limited circumstances, MSSB
will compensate an external trust company for the services it
provides to a client account. Neither MSSB nor your Financial
Advisor will be paid by the external trust company. In certain
circumstances, MSSB or an affiliate may pay compensation to or
receive an indirect economic benefit from an unrelated third
party (see: "Client Referrals and Other Compensation", Item 9
below).
Risks Relating to ETFs. There may be a lack of liquidity in
certain ETFs which can lead to a large difference between the
bid-ask prices (increasing the cost to you when you buy or sell
the ETF). A lack of liquidity also may cause an ETF to trade at a
large premium or discount to its net asset value. Additionally, an
ETF may suspend issuing new shares and this may result in an
adverse difference between the ETF’s publicly available share
price and the actual value of its underlying investment holdings.
At times when underlying holdings are traded less frequently, or
not at all, an ETF’s returns also may diverge from the
benchmark it is designed to track.
Risks Relating to Money Market Funds. An investment in a
money market fund is neither insured nor guaranteed by the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or any other
government agency. Although money market funds seek to
preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, there is
no assurance that will occur, and it is possible to lose money if
the fund value per share falls. Moreover, in some circumstances,
money market funds may be forced to cease operations when the
value of a fund drops below $1.00 per share. In that event, the
fund’s holdings are liquidated and distributed to the fund’s
shareholders. This liquidation process could take up to one
month or more. During that time, these funds would not be
available to you to support purchases, withdrawals and, if
applicable, check writing or ATM debits from your account.
As part of CG Trust Services, you or your selected trustee, with
investment authority, may delegate investment discretion
directly to MSSB or receive non-discretionary investment
advisory services through the programs offered by Consulting
Group. Additionally, certain external trust companies have
contractually agreed to attempt to use the services (including
MSSB custody services) described in this Brochure for each CG
Trust Services client (and in some cases, former CG Trust
Services clients), unless the client has issued contrary
instructions, and so long as such use of MSSB services will not
cause the external trust company to violate any duty or

custodian, you can hold your assets in custody at MSSB through

the Fund’s essential characteristics and risks, and how it will
perform in different market environments and over various
periods of time. They may also expose the Fund to increased
volatility and unanticipated risks particularly when used in
complex combinations and/or accompanied by the use of
borrowing or “leverage”.
Risks Relating to Master Limited Partnerships. Master Limited
Partnerships (“MLPs”) are limited partnerships or limited
liability companies whose interests (limited partnerships or
limited liability companies units) are generally traded on
securities exchanges like shares of common stock. Investment in
MLPs entails different risks, including tax risks, than is the case
for other types of investments.
Risks Relating to Alternative Investments. Alternative
investments have different features and risks from other types of
investment products. As further described in the offering
documents of any particular alternative investment, an
investment in alternative investments can be highly illiquid, is
speculative and not suitable for all investors. For example,
alternative investment products may place substantial limits on
liquidity and the redemption rights of investors, including only
permitting withdrawals on a limited periodic basis and with a
significant period of notice and may impose early withdrawal
fees. Investing in alternative investments is intended for
experienced and sophisticated investors only who are willing to
bear the high economic risks of the investment. Investors should
carefully review and consider potential risks before investing.
Certain of these risks may include: loss of all or a substantial
portion of the investment due to leveraging, short selling, or
other speculative practices; lack of liquidity, in that there may be
no secondary market for the fund and none expected to develop;
volatility of returns; restrictions on transferring interests in the
fund; potential lack of diversification and resulting higher risk
due to concentration of trading authority when a single advisor
is utilized; absence of information regarding valuations and
pricing; complex tax structures and delays in tax reporting; less
regulation and higher fees than mutual funds; and advisor risk.
Alternative investment products may also have higher fees
(including multiple layers of fees) compared to other types of
investments.
Currently, most MLPs operate in the energy, natural resources or
real estate sectors. Investments in MLP interests are subject to
the risks generally applicable to companies in these sectors
(including commodity pricing risk, supply and demand risk,
depletion risk and exploration risk). Depending on the ownership
vehicle, MLP interests are subject to varying tax treatment.
Please see “Tax and Legal Considerations” below and any
mutual fund or ETF prospectus by asking your Financial
Advisor.
Risks Relating to Mutual Funds and ETFs that Primarily
Invest in Master Limited Partnerships. In addition to the risks
outlined above relating to Master Limited Partnerships, mutual
funds and ETFs that primarily invest in MLPs generally accrue
deferred tax liability. The fund’s deferred tax liability (if any) is
reflected each day in the fund’s net asset value. As a result, the
fund’s total annual operating expenses may be significantly
higher than those of funds that do not primarily invest in MLPs.
Please see the fund or ETF prospectus for additional
information.
Risks Relating to Mutual Funds, ETFs and Commingled
Funds that Pursue Complex or Alternative Investment
Strategies or Returns. These mutual funds, ETFs and
commingled funds may employ various investment strategies
and techniques for both hedging and more speculative purposes
such as short selling, leverage, derivatives and options, which
can increase volatility and the risk of investment loss.
Alternative investment strategies are not suitable for all
investors.
Individual funds will have specific risks related to their
investment programs that will vary from fund to fund. For more
details on these and other features and risks, please carefully
read the documentation (including risk disclosures) relating to
any selected Investment Option, as well as your client
agreement.
You should also keep in mind that while mutual funds, ETFs
and commingled funds may at times utilize non-traditional
investment options and strategies, they should not be equated
with unregistered privately offered alternative investments.
Because of regulatory limitations, mutual funds, ETFs and
commingled funds that seek alternative-like investment exposure
must utilize a more limited investment universe. As a result,
investment returns and portfolio characteristics of alternative
mutual funds may vary from traditional hedge funds pursuing
similar investment objectives. They are also more likely to have
relatively higher correlation with traditional market returns than
privately offered alternative investments. Moreover, traditional
hedge funds have limited liquidity with long “lock-up periods
allowing them to pursue investment strategies without having to
factor in the need to meet client redemptions. On the other hand,
mutual funds typically must meet daily client redemptions. This
differing liquidity profile can have a material impact on the
investment returns generated by a mutual fund pursuing an
alternative investing strategy compared with a traditional hedge
fund pursuing the same strategy.
Risks Relating to Differing Classes of Securities. Different
classes of securities have different rights as creditor if the issuer
files for bankruptcy or reorganization.
For example,
bondholders’ rights generally are more favorable than
shareholders’ rights in a bankruptcy or reorganization.
Tax and Legal Considerations
Neither MSSB, neither Graystone nor any of our affiliates
provides tax or legal advice and, therefore, are not responsible
for developing, implementing or evaluating any tax strategies
that may be employed by the client. The client should develop
any such strategies or address any legal or tax-related issues with
a qualified legal or tax adviser.
Investment in MLPs entails different risks, including tax risks,
than is the case for other types of investments. Investors in
MLPs hold “units” of the MLP (as opposed to a share of
corporate stock) and are technically partners in the MLP.
Holders of MLP units are also exposed to the risk that they will
be required to repay amounts to the MLP that are wrongfully
Non-traditional investment options and strategies are often
employed by a portfolio manager to further a Fund’s investment
objective and to help offset market risks. However, these
features may be complex, making it more difficult to understand

distributed to them. Almost all MLPs have chosen to qualify for
partnership tax treatment. Partnerships do not pay U.S. federal
income tax at the partnership level. Rather, each partner of a
partnership, in computing its U.S. federal income tax liability,
must include its allocable share of the partnership’s income,
gains, losses, deductions, expenses and credits. A change in
current tax law, or a change in the business of a given MLP,
could result in an MLP being treated as a corporation for U.S.
federal income tax purposes, which would result in such MLP
being required to pay U.S. federal income tax on its taxable
income. The classification of an MLP as a corporation for U.S.
federal income tax purposes would have the effect of reducing
the amount of cash available for distribution by the MLP and
could cause any such distributions received by the an investor to
be taxed as dividend income. If you have any questions about
the tax aspects of investing into an MLP, please discuss with
your tax advisor.
Hard Dollar Fee. In addition, clients may select any of the
services listed below. The fees are negotiable subject to
approval from Graystone management and an overall minimum
engagement fee of $15,000.
Investors in MLP portfolios will receive a Schedule K-1 for each
MLP in the portfolio, so they will likely receive numerous
Schedule K-1s. Investors will need to file each Schedule K-1
with their federal tax return. Also, investors in MLP portfolios
may be required to file state income tax returns in states where
the MLPs in the portfolio operate. Since some Schedule K-1s
may not be provided until after the due date for the federal or
state tax return, investors in MLP portfolios may need to obtain
an extension for filing their federal or state tax returns. Please
discuss with your tax advisor how an investment in MLPs will
affect your tax return.

If you have two accounts, the “related” fees on Account #1 are
calculated by applying your total assets (i.e. assets in Account #1
+ assets in Account #2) to the Account #1 breakpoints. Because
this amount is greater than the amount of assets solely in
Account #1, you may have a greater proportion of assets subject
to lower fee rates, which in turn lowers the average fee rate for
Account #1. This average fee rate is then multiplied by the
actual amount of assets in Account #1 to determine the dollar fee
for Account #1. Likewise, the total assets are applied to the
Account #2 breakpoints to determine the average fee rate for
Account #2, which is then multiplied by the actual amount of
assets in Account #2 to determine the dollar fee for Account #2.
For accounts with greater than $10 million in assets the
following fee schedule applies:

Only certain accounts may be related for billing purposes, based
on the law and MSSB’s policies and procedures. Even where
accounts are eligible to be related under these policies and
procedures, they will only be related if this is specifically agreed
between you and Graystone Consulting.
Hard Dollar Fee. In addition, clients may select to pay fees for
discretionary services as a hard dollar fee based on equivalent
asset based fee parameters described above. The fees are
negotiable subject to approval from Graystone management and
an overall minimum engagement fee of $25,000.
ERISA Fee Disclosure for Qualified Retirement Plans. In
accordance with Department of Labor regulations under Section
408(b)(2) of ERISA, MSSB is required to provide certain
information regarding our services and compensation to assist
fiduciaries and plan sponsors of those retirement plans that are
subject to the requirements of ERISA in assessing the
reasonableness of their plan’s contracts or arrangements with us,
including the reasonableness of our compensation.
This
information (the services we provide as well as the fees) is
provided to you at the outset of your relationship with us and is
set forth in your advisory contract with us (including the Fee
table, other exhibits and, as applicable, this document), and then
at least annually to the extent that there are changes to any
investment-related disclosures for services provided as a
fiduciary under ERISA.
General Fee Information
Generally, fees for the programs described in this Brochure are
based on the size of the account (assets under management) and
are negotiable based on a number of factors including the type
and size of the account and the range of services provided by
Graystone Consulting. In special circumstances, and with the
client’s agreement, the fee charged to a client for an account may
be more than the annual fees stated in the above section.
The fee is payable as described in the Client Agreement.
Generally, unless specified to the contrary, for asset-based fees,
the initial fee is due in full on the date you open your account at
Graystone Consulting and is based on the market value of the
account on that date. The initial fee payment covers the period
from the opening date through (at your election) the last business
day of the current quarter or the next full calendar quarter and is
prorated accordingly. Thereafter, the fee is paid quarterly in
advance based on the account’s market value on the last business
day of the previous calendar quarter and is due the following
business day. Unless the client elects to hold assets in custody at
a third-party custodian, the Client Agreement authorizes MSSB
to deduct fees when due from the assets in the account. If client
elects a third party custodian, the client has the option of paying
us directly or we can bill the custodian. Unless stated otherwise,
generally for hard dollar fees, fees will be payable in advance.
Other. A portion of the MSSB Fee will be paid to your Financial
Advisor. See Item 4.D below (Compensation to Financial
Advisors), for more information.
B.
Comparing Costs
Cost comparisons are difficult because a particular service may
not be offered in other MSSB programs. Depending on the level
of trading and types of securities purchased or sold in your
account, if purchased separately, you may be able to obtain
transaction execution at a higher or lower cost at MSSB or
elsewhere than the fee in these programs. However, such
transactions cannot be executed on a discretionary basis in a
brokerage account. In addition, MSSB offers other programs
where discretionary portfolio management is provided by third
party investment managers (and not your Graystone Consultant)
and the fees in those programs may be higher or lower than the
fees in these programs.
You may terminate participation in the programs described in
this Brochure at any time by giving written notice to Graystone
Consulting. Graystone may (but is not obligated to) accept an
oral notice of termination from you in lieu of the written notice.
If participation in any of the programs described in this Brochure
is terminated, any advisory fees paid in advance will be refunded
on a pro-rata basis.
You should consider these and other differences when deciding
whether to invest in an investment advisory or a brokerage
account and, if applicable, which advisory programs best suit
your needs.
Accounts Related for Billing Purposes. When two or more
investment advisory accounts are related together for billing
purposes, you can benefit even more from existing breakpoints.
12
C.
MSSB provides fund families or their affiliated service providers
with opportunities to sponsor meetings and conferences and
grants them access to our branch offices and Financial Advisors
for educational, marketing and other promotional efforts. Fund
representatives may work closely with our branch offices and
Financial Advisors to develop business strategies and plan
promotional and educational activities. In addition, MSSB
typically receives payments from funds or their affiliates in
connection with these promotional efforts to help offset
expenses incurred for sales events and training programs as well
as client seminars, conferences and meetings. Fund families
independently decide what they will spend on these activities
and may also invite our Financial Advisors to attend fund family
sponsored events. Expense payments may include meeting or
conference facility rental fees and hotel, meal and travel charges.
Additional Fees
If you open an account in one of the programs described in this
Brochure, you may pay us an asset-based fee for investment
advisory services, custody of securities and trade execution with
or through MSSB. The program fees do not cover:

the costs of investment management fees and other expenses
charged by Funds (see below for more details)

“mark-ups,” “mark-downs,” and dealer spreads (A) that
MSSB or its affiliates may receive when acting as principal
in certain transactions where permitted by law or (B) that
other broker-dealers may receive when acting as principal in
certain transactions effected through MSSB and/or its
affiliates acting as agent, which is typically the case for
dealer market transactions (e.g., fixed income and over-thecounter equity)

brokerage commissions or other charges resulting from
transactions not effected through MSSB or its affiliates

MSSB account establishment or maintenance fees for its
Individual Retirement Accounts (“IRA”) and Versatile
Investment Plans (“VIP”), which are described in the
respective IRA and VIP account and fee documentation
(which may change from time to time)

account closing/transfer costs

processing fees or

certain other costs or charges that may be imposed by third
parties (including, among other things, odd-lot differentials,
transfer taxes, foreign custody fees, exchange fees,
supplemental transaction fees, regulatory fees and other fees
or taxes that may be imposed pursuant to law).
Certain fund families (referred to as “Global Partners” or
“Emerging Partners”) dedicate significant financial and staffing
resources to these efforts and receive supplemental sales data
analytics as well as additional opportunities to sponsor firm
events and promote their funds to our Financial Advisors and
clients. Global Partners commit $550,000 per year for training
and sales meeting expenses and pay a fee of $200,000 per year
for data analytics. Emerging Partners commit $250,000 per year
for training and sales expenses and pay a fee of $100,000 per
year for data analytics. These facts present a conflict of interest
for MSSB and our Financial Advisors to the extent they lead us
to focus on funds from those fund families, including our Global
and Emerging Partners, that commit significant financial and
staffing resources to promotional and educational activities
instead of on funds from fund families that do not purchase
sales data analytics or do not commit similar resources to these
activities. In order to mitigate this conflict, Financial Advisors
and their Branch Office Managers do not receive additional
compensation for recommending fund families sponsored by our
Global or Emerging Partners or any other fund families that
provide significant sales training and support.
Funds in Advisory Programs
Investing in mutual funds and ETFs (collectively, “Funds”) may
be more expensive than other investment options offered in your
advisory account. In addition to our fee, you pay the fees and
expenses of the Funds in which your account is invested. Fund
fees and expenses are charged directly to the pool of assets the
Fund invests in and are reflected in each Fund’s share price.
These fees and expenses are an additional cost to you and are not
included in the fee amount in your account statements. Each
mutual fund and ETF expense ratio (the total amount of fees and
expenses charged by the Fund) is stated in its prospectus. The
expense ratio generally reflects the costs incurred by
shareholders during the mutual fund’s or ETF’s most recent
fiscal reporting period. Current and future expenses may differ
from those stated in the prospectus.
Global and Emerging Partners may present a certain number of
funds or other products to MSSB’s Global Investment Manager
Analysis Group subject to a shorter timeline for GIMA to begin
its review of such products if there is a backlog at the time the
fund or product is being considered. However, products and
funds offered by Global and Emerging Partners are subjected to
the same GIMA due diligence process and standards as all other
investment products and are not given preference in terms of
approval by GIMA for offering in MSSB advisory programs.
MSSB selects the Global and Emerging Partners fund families
based on a number of quantitative and qualitative criteria. Our
Global Partners are denoted by an asterisk on the RevenueSharing Fund Families list available by going to our website,
http://www2.morganstanley.com/wealth/investmentsolutions/mu
tualfunds.asp and clicking on “Important Information about
Mutual Funds” – “Revenue Sharing Arrangements”.
You do not pay any sales charges for purchases of Funds in
programs described in this Brochure. However, some Funds
may charge, and not waive, a redemption fee on certain
transaction activity in accordance with their prospectuses.
Expense Payments, Data Analytics and Administrative Services
Fees. MSSB receives expense payments and fees for data
analytics, recordkeeping and related services, which are more
fully described below. Administrative fees may be viewed in
part as a form of revenue-sharing if and to the extent they exceed
what the mutual fund would otherwise have paid for these
services.
Fund family representatives are allowed to occasionally give
nominal gifts to Financial Advisors, and to occasionally
entertain Financial Advisors (subject to an aggregate
entertainment limit of $1,000 per employee per fund family per
year). MSSB’s non-cash compensation policies set conditions
for each of these types of payments and do not permit any gifts
or entertainment conditioned on achieving any sales target.
13
Administrative Service Fees. MSSB and/or its affiliates receive
compensation from funds or their affiliated service providers for
providing certain recordkeeping and related services to the
funds. These charges are typically based upon the number or
aggregate value of client positions and the levels of services
provided. We process transactions with certain fund families on
an omnibus basis, which means we consolidate our clients’
trades into one daily trade with the fund, and therefore maintain
all pertinent individual shareholder information to the fund.
Trading in this manner requires that we maintain the transaction
history necessary to track and process sales charges, annual
service fees and deferred sales charges for each position as
applicable, as well as other transaction details required for
ongoing position maintenance purposes. For these services,
funds pay up to 0.16% ($16 per $10,000) on fund assets held by
non-retirement investors in the advisory program covered by this
Brochure.
shares (not the non-advisory class shares) of that mutual fund in
the program.
If available, we (without notice to you) will convert any mutual
fund in your account to a share class of the same mutual fund
which is a load-waived or no-load share class such as an
Institutional share or Financial Intermediary Share, or to a share
class that is available only to investment advisory clients
(collectively, an “Investment Advisory Share”), to the extent
available. On termination of your account, or the transfer of
mutual fund shares out of your account into another account,
including a MSSB brokerage account, if at the time of transfer or
termination, your account includes Investment Advisory Share
mutual funds, we may convert any Investment Advisory Shares
to the corresponding non-advisory share class (even though the
expense ratio for that share class may be higher than the expense
ratio for the share class of the fund previously held in your
account) or we may redeem these mutual fund shares. The nonadvisory mutual fund share class generally has higher operating
expenses than the corresponding Investment Advisory Share
classes, which may negatively impact investment performance.
In addition to the omnibus accounting services that we provide
for the funds, we are also responsible for delivery of disclosure
documents; processing of dividend distributions; tax reporting
functions on their behalf.
Custody
Notwithstanding the foregoing, MSSB does not receive such
payments from mutual fund assets held by those clients that are
qualified employee benefit plans, as defined under ERISA,
individual retirement accounts (“IRAs”) described in Section
4975 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the
“Code”) or a plan or other arrangement subject to fiduciary and
prohibited transaction requirements of substantially similar state,
local or foreign law (each, a “Retirement Plan”).
MSSB does not act as custodian. If you retain a custodian other
than MSSB, your outside custodian will advise you of your cash
sweep options and as described in the Client Agreement, you
will have the option of instructing us on whether you want the
Graystone Consulting fee billed to you directly or to the outside
custodian selected by you.
MSSB acts as custodian. Unless you instruct us otherwise,
MSSB will maintain custody of all cash, securities and other
assets in the account and the following sections on cash sweeps
will apply to you.
Client selection of MSSB affiliated funds. Where clients select
to invest in mutual funds where the investment adviser is a
MSSB affiliate, in addition to the program fee paid by clients,
MSSB and its affiliates may also receive investment
management fees and related administrative fees. Since the
affiliated sponsor or manager receives additional investment
management fees and other fees, MSSB has a conflict to
recommend MSSB affiliated mutual funds.
Cash Sweeps
Generally, some portion of your account will be held in cash. If
MSSB acts as custodian for your account, it will effect “sweep”
transactions of uninvested cash and allocations to cash, if any, in
your account into:

Advisor on request.
Share classes. Mutual fund companies typically offer different
ways to buy mutual fund shares. In addition to the more broadly
known retail share classes (A, B and C shares), fund companies
have developed additional types of specialized share classes
designed for specific advisory programs. If available, clients’
shares are converted into the share class required by the mutual
fund for that type of account. Depending on the circumstances,
clients’ shares are converted into a share class that has a lower or
a higher expense ratio. Advisory share classes usually have a
lower expense ratio than the share classes that MSSB previously
offered in the program. However, we may continue to offer nonadvisory share classes if, for example, there is no equivalent
advisory share class available or we believe that the nonadvisory share class is likely to be the most cost effective share
class. Once we make an advisory share class available for a
particular mutual fund, clients can only buy the advisory class

interest-bearing bank deposit accounts (“Deposit Accounts”)
established under the Bank Deposit Program (“BDP”) or

money market mutual funds (each, a “Money Market Fund”
and, together with BDP Deposit Accounts, “Sweep
Investments”). The Money Market Funds are managed by
Morgan Stanley Investment Management Inc. or another
MSSB affiliate.
If you do not select a Sweep Investment when you open your
account, your Sweep Investment will be BDP if you are eligible.
You acknowledge that MSSB may with 30 days written notice
(i) make changes to these sweep terms; (ii) makes changes to the
terms and conditions of any available sweep investment; (iii)
change, add or delete the products available as a sweep option;
(iv) transfer your sweep investment from one sweep product to
another.

Statement and Float Disclosure Statement”).
of interest in selecting or recommending BDP as the Sweep
Investment, rather than an eligible Money Market Fund.
Unless otherwise specifically disclosed to you in writing, such
as in connection with the Bank Deposit Program noted
above, investments and services offered through MSSB are
not insured by the FDIC, are not deposits or other
obligations of, or guaranteed by, the Sweep Banks, and
involve investment risks, including possible loss of the
principal invested.
The custodian will effect sweep transactions only to the extent
permitted by law and if you meet the Sweep Investment’s
eligibility criteria.
Bank Deposit Program. Through the Bank Deposit Program,
Deposit Accounts are established for you at one or more of the
following banks (individually and collectively, the “Sweep
Banks”): (i) Morgan Stanley Bank, N.A. and/or (ii) Morgan
Stanley Private Bank, National Association. The Sweep Banks
are affiliated with MSSB. The Sweep Banks pay interest on the
Deposit Accounts established under the BDP. Your deposits at
the Sweep Banks will be insured by the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to applicable limits, in
accordance with FDIC rules, and subject to aggregation of all the
accounts (including, without limitation, certificates of deposit)
that you hold at the Sweep Banks in the same capacity. Bank
deposits held through the BDP are not covered by SIPC or
excess coverage.
Money Market Funds. We may, in our sole discretion, offer
Money Market Funds as Sweep Investments. The Money Market
Funds are affiliated with MSSB. You understand that purchases
and redemptions of Money Market Fund shares may be affected
only through MSSB and that you may not directly access the
Money Market Fund.
If a Money Market Fund is your Sweep Investment, you
authorize us, as your agent, to make investments in, and
redemptions from, the Money Market Fund.
Each of these Money Market Funds is a separate investment
with different investment objectives. Their fees, expenses,
minimum investment requirements, dividend policies and
procedures may vary. Before you invest in any Money Market
Fund, read its prospectus carefully. Money Market Fund shares
are neither insured nor protected by the FDIC. Investment in any
money market fund is a purchase of securities issued by the
money market fund, not a bank deposit.
If BDP is your Sweep Investment, you authorize us, as your
agent, to establish the Deposit Accounts for you, and to make
deposits into, withdrawals from and transfers among the Deposit
Accounts.
Terms of the Bank Deposit Program are further described in the
Bank Deposit Program Disclosure Statement, which will be
provided to you upon your first investment in the Bank Deposit
Program. You may also obtain the Bank Deposit Program
Disclosure Statement as well as current interest rates applicable
to your account, by contacting your Graystone Consultant or
through
MSSB’s
website
at
www.morganstanley.com/wealth/services/bankdepositprogram.a
sp. You acknowledge and understand that we may amend the
list of Sweep Banks at any time with 30 days written notice to
you. If you are participating in the Bank Deposit Program,
please read the Bank Deposit Program Disclosure Statement
carefully.
Certain of the Money Market Funds described above have
minimum investment requirements. In addition, MSSB may
require a minimum initial investment to activate some or all of
the Sweep Investments. If you do not meet the minimum initial
investment, uninvested cash and allocations to cash in eligible
accounts will remain uninvested or be invested in the BDP.
In addition, certain of the Money Market Funds have minimum
balance requirements. For eligible accounts, if your investment
falls below the minimum balance requirement, MSSB may
redeem and reinvest all of your shares in the BDP. Once your
sweep option has been changed, we will not automatically
change it back to your previous Sweep Investment even if you
meet the minimum initial investment and/or balance
requirements. You must contact your Financial Advisor or
Graystone Consultant to do so. However, if a pattern develops of
falling below the minimum balance requirement, we may
preclude you from investing in that Sweep Investment in the
future.
Please note the following: (i) you are responsible to monitor the
total amount of deposits you have at each Sweep Bank in order
to determine the extent of FDIC insurance coverage available to
you; and (ii) MSSB, is not responsible for any insured or
uninsured portion of your deposits at any of the Sweep Banks.
If BDP is your Sweep Investment, you should be aware that,
each Sweep Bank will pay MSSB a fee equal to the percentage
of the average daily deposit balances in your Deposit Account at
the Sweep Banks. Your Financial Advisor or Graystone
Consultant will not receive a portion of these fees or credits. In
addition, MSSB will not receive cash compensation or credits in
connection with the BDP for assets in the Deposit Accounts for
Retirement Plans or Coverdell Education Savings accounts.
Also, the affiliated Sweep Banks have the opportunity to earn
income on the BDP assets through lending activity, and that
income is usually significantly greater than the fees MSSB earns
on affiliated Money Market Funds. Thus, MSSB has a conflict
We may offer other money market funds as a non-sweep
investment choice. You may purchase shares in these money
market funds by giving specific orders for each purchase to your
Financial Advisor or Graystone Consultant. However,
uninvested cash in your account will not be swept into these
money market funds.
Since the Money Market Funds are sponsored or managed by
MSSB affiliates, those MSSB affiliates receive advisory fees and
may receive other fees from the Money Market Funds if your
15
account cash balances are invested in the Money Market Funds.
Therefore, MSSB has a conflict of interest in selecting or
recommending the Money Market Funds as your Sweep
Investment.
For Retirement Plans with cash balances
invested in Money Market Funds sponsored or managed by
MSSB affiliates, certain fees received and retained by such
MSSB affiliates will be credited to the account or offset
against the advisory program fee. Please see the attached
Exhibit “Affiliated Money Market Funds Fee Disclosure
Statement and Float Disclosure Statement” for more details.
Please refer to the discussion in Section 4 A. for a complete
description of the programs.
MSSB’s Global Investment Manager Analysis Group
GIMA evaluates Investment Products. GIMA may delegate
some or all of its functions to an affiliate or third party.
Investment Products may only participate in the FS or CES
programs if they are on GIMA’s Focus List or Approved List
discussed below. You may obtain these lists from your
Graystone Consultant. In each program, only some of the
Investment
Products
may
be
available.
The above provisions may not apply if you are not a U.S.
resident. If you are not a U.S. resident, please contact your
Graystone Consultant to determine whether the BDP or a Money
Market Fund will be your default Sweep Investment.
D.
As well as requiring Investment Products to be on the Focus List
or Approved List, we look at other factors in determining which
Investment Products we offer in these programs, including:
Compensation to Graystone
Consulting

program needs (such as whether we have a sufficient
number of Investment Products available in an asset class)
client demand and
the manager’s or Fund’s minimum account size.
If you invest in one of the programs described in this Brochure,
a portion of the fees payable to us in connection with your
account is allocated on an ongoing basis to Graystone
Consultants. The amount allocated to your Graystone
Consultants in connection with accounts opened in programs
described in this Brochure may be more than if you participated
in other MSSB investment advisory programs, or if you paid
separately for investment advice, brokerage and other services.
Your Graystone Consultant may therefore have a financial
incentive to recommend one of the programs in this Brochure
instead of other MSSB programs or services.


If you invest in one of the programs described in this Brochure,
Graystone Consulting may charge a fee less than the maximum
fee stated above. The amount of the fee you pay is a factor we
use in calculating the compensation we pay your Graystone
Consultant. Therefore, Graystone Consultants have a financial
incentive not to reduce fees
Focus List. To be considered for the Focus List, Investment
Products provide GIMA with relevant documentation on the
strategy being evaluated, which may include sample portfolios,
asset allocation histories, its Form ADV (the form that
investment managers use to register with the SEC), past
performance information and marketing literature. For
verification purposes, as part of the review process GIMA may
compare the manager’s/Fund’s reported performance with the
performance of a cross-section of actual accounts calculated by
GIMA. GIMA personnel may also interview the manager or
Fund and its key personnel, and examine its operations.
Following this review process, Investment Products are placed
on the Focus List if they meet the required standards for Focus
List status.
We automatically terminate Investment Products in the CES and
FS programs if GIMA downgrades them to “Not Approved.”
We may terminate Investment Products from these programs for
other reasons (i.e.., the Investment Product has a low level of
assets under management in the program, the Investment
Product has limited capacity for further investment, or the
Investment Product is not complying with our policies and
procedures).
Item 5: Account Requirements and
Types of Clients
Graystone Consulting offers its services under this Brochure to
corporations, Taft Hartley funds, endowments and foundations,
public and private retirement plans, including 401(k) plan
sponsors, family offices and high net worth individuals.
GIMA periodically reviews Investment Products on the Focus
List. GIMA considers a broad range of factors (which may
include investment performance, staffing, operational issues and
financial condition). Among other things, GIMA personnel
interview each manager or Fund periodically to discuss these
matters. If GIMA is familiar with a manager or Fund following
repeated reviews, GIMA is likely to focus on quantitative
analysis and interviews and not require in-person meetings.
GIMA may also review the collective performance of a
composite of the MSSB accounts managed by a manager/Fund
and compare this performance to overall performance data
provided by the manager/Fund, and then investigate any material
deviations.
Item 6: Portfolio Manager Selection
and Evaluation
A.
Selection and Review of Portfolio
Managers and Funds for the Programs
This Item 6.A describes more generally how we select and
terminate Investment Options from these programs described in
this Brochure. If managers have more than one strategy, we may
include only some of those strategies in the programs described
in this Brochure, may carry different strategies in different
programs, and assign different statuses to different strategies.
Approved List. The process for considering Investment Products
for the Approved List is less comprehensive, and evaluates
16
various qualitative and quantitative factors. These may include
personnel depth, turnover and experience; investment process;
business and organization characteristics; and investment
performance. GIMA may use an algorithm – a rules-based
scoring mechanism – that reviews various qualitative and
quantitative factors and ranks each Investment Product in a third
party database. (Not all Investment Products reviewed for the
Approved List are subject to this algorithm.) GIMA analysts
analyze the information contained in the algorithm to gauge the
completeness and consistency of the data which drive the
rankings, and then send the manager or Fund additional
information requests. GIMA then determines whether the
Investment Product meets the standards for Approved List
status. Furthermore, GIMA may evaluate an Investment Product
under the evaluation process for the Focus List but then decide
to instead put it on the Approved List.
evaluation is in progress. MSSB will not necessarily notify
clients of any such evaluation.
GIMA periodically evaluates Investment Products on the
Approved List to determine whether they continue to meet the
Approved List standards.
Tactical Opportunities List.
GIMA also has a Tactical
Opportunities List. This consists of certain Investment Products
on the Focus List or Approved List recommended for investment
at a given time based in part on then-existing tactical
opportunities in the market.
Watch Policy. GIMA has a “Watch” policy for Investment
Products on the Focus List and Approved List. Watch status
indicates that, in reviewing an Investment Product, GIMA has
identified specific areas of the manager’s or Fund’s business that
(a) merit further evaluation by GIMA and (b) may, but are not
certain to, result in the Investment Product becoming “Not
Approved.” Putting an Investment Product on Watch does not
signify an actual change in GIMA opinion nor is it a guarantee
that GIMA will downgrade the Investment Product. The duration
of a Watch status depends on how long GIMA needs to evaluate
the Investment Product and for the Investment Product to
address any areas of concern. For additional information, ask
your Graystone Consultant for a copy of GIMA’s Watch Policy.
Changes in Status from Focus List to Approved List. In light of
the differing evaluation methodology and standards for the
Focus List and Approved List, GIMA may determine that an
Investment Product no longer meets the criteria for the Focus
List or will no longer be reviewed under the Focus List review
process, but meets the criteria for the Approved List. If so,
MSSB generally notifies program clients regarding such status
changes on a quarterly basis.
Other Relationships with Managers and Funds. Some managers
and Funds on the Approved List or Focus List may have
business relationships with us or our affiliates. For example, a
manager or Fund may use MS&Co. or an affiliate as its broker
or may be an investment banking client of MS&Co. or an
affiliate. GIMA does not consider the existence or lack of a
business relationship in determining whether to include or
maintain a manager or Fund on the Approved List or Focus List.
Changes in Status to Not Approved. GIMA may determine that
an Investment Product no longer meets the criteria under either
evaluation process and therefore the Investment Product will no
longer be recommended in MSSB investment advisory
programs. We notify affected clients of these downgrades. You
cannot retain a downgraded manager or Fund in your accounts
and must select a replacement from the Approved List or Focus
List that is available in the program, if you wish to retain the
program’s benefits in respect of the affected assets.
Graystone Fund Due Diligence
In addition to the Funds reviewed by GIMA, Graystone
Consultants may offer clients access to additional mutual funds,
ETFs and commingled funds reviewed by Graystone.
Select Graystone teams conduct due diligence on Funds using
information provided by Funds’ investment managers or outside
independent databases, all unaffiliated with MSSB.
In some circumstances, you may be able to retain terminated
Investment Products in another advisory program or in a
brokerage account subject to the regular terms and conditions
applying to that program or account. Ask your Graystone
Consultant about these options.
We conduct both quantitative screening and a qualitative
assessment. We start by sending the Fund a request for
information (“RFI”) substantially similar to the one used by the
MSSB mutual fund area in determining which Funds to bring on
the MSSB platform. After reviewing the information we receive
in response to the RFI, we review the Fund’s performance. We
then speak with Fund managers and gather information through
an additional RFI and manager material.
MSSB generally specifies a replacement Investment Product for
a terminated Investment Product in FS (as discussed in Item 4.A
above). In selecting the replacement Investment Product, GIMA
generally looks for an Investment Product in the same asset
class, and with similar attributes and holdings to the terminated
Investment Product.
The Graystone Director of Institutional Investments reviews the
due diligence for completeness. Funds are then either approved
or not approved for use in the Institutional Consulting Services
programs. Currently, the approved Funds are:
If GIMA leans of a material change to an Investment Product
(e.g., the departure of an investment manager or investment
team), MSSB, an affiliate or a third-party retained by GIMA or
an affiliate, will evaluate the Investment Product in light of the
change. This evaluation may take some time to complete. While
this evaluation is being performed, the Investment Product will
remain eligible for the Graystone Consulting program. The
GIMA designation (Focus List or Approved List) for the
Investment Product will not be altered solely because this

In addition to the mutual funds and ETFs that appear on the
Focus List and Approved List of GIMA described above, for
clients in the Institutional Consulting Services program for
participant directed defined contribution plans, funds may be
“approved” for the program in an alternate manner, as well.
MSSB applies a proprietary screening process to funds in the
Morningstar mutual fund database, which it applies in part using
third party software. The screening algorithm, applied quarterly,
is based on factors such as performance, ranking, stewardship
grade, fees and manager tenure. Funds subject to this process
are either approved or not approved for use in the Institutional
Consulting Services program for participant directed defined
contribution plans. Graystone and MSSB do not maintain a
Watch List for these funds equivalent to GIMA’s Watch List.
Selection of Alternative Investments
Alternative investment managers may only participate in the
traditional Institutional Consulting Services and Graystone
discretionary programs described in this Brochure if they are on
MSSB’s Alternatives Approved List (described below).
Managers often offer more than one alternative investment and
we may include only some of those alternative investments (or
only certain share classes of such alternative investment) in our
programs, may carry different alternative investments (or share
classes) in different programs, and assign different statuses to
different alternative investments.
We generally conduct periodic follow-up due diligence on
approved Funds.
As well as requiring alternative investments to be on the
Alternatives Approved List or Approved List, we look at other
factors in determining which alternative investments we offer in
these programs, including program needs (such as whether we
have a sufficient number of managers available in an asset
class), and client demand.
MAP Due Diligence
Select Graystone and Morgan Stanley Private Wealth
Management (“PWM”) teams may approve a manager or
Investment Products managed by approved managers through
the Graystone Manager Assessment Program or the PWM
Manager Assessment Program. (PWM is a division of MSSB.)
In the programs, investment and business risk due diligence on
alternative investments is provided by MSSB through (i) our
Alternative Investments Research group (“AIR”), (ii) an affiliate
of MSSB that may provide due diligence and monitoring
services, or (iii) an independent, third-party consulting firm or
other organization retained by MSSB and approved by the
AIPRC (“Due Diligence Provider”) that is also in the business of
evaluating the capabilities of alternative investments. Any firm
providing due diligence is expected to follow a methodology
similar to that used by AIR (described below) or a methodology
approved by the AIPRC in reviewing such alternative
investments.
The reviewing team uses a proprietary tool that assesses all
separate account managers in a third party database to narrow
the list of potential investment managers for consideration. It
then generally conducts further analysis on managers, focusing
on qualitative factors (e.g., quality of investment professionals
and the manager’s investment process).
If the manager is being reviewed by a Graystone team, the
Graystone Director of Institutional Investments reviews the due
diligence for completeness. If the manager is being reviewed by
a PWM team, the Research Management Committee also
reviews and, if appropriate, approves the manager. (The
Research Management Committee reviews certain products
made available in Consulting Group programs.) Once a manager
has been approved by either reviewing team, it is available for
Graystone Consulting, PWM MAP and certain other clients.
On an ongoing basis, the Due Diligence Provider conducts both
quantitative and qualitative research on potential candidates.
Their research includes, among other things, a review of relevant
documents, calls and meetings with the investment team, and an
analysis of investment performance. Generally, although the
process may be modified for a particular manager or alternative
investment as the Due Diligence Provider may deem
appropriate, the Due Diligence Provider will typically also
conduct on-site visits, review a separate business risk due
diligence questionnaire and examine areas such as portfolio
pricing, contingency planning, background checks on key
principals and other items. Their due diligence covers the
alternative investment in question, not the investments in which
that alternative investment may in turn invest. For example, for
The reviewing team generally conducts periodic follow-up due
diligence on approved managers (including follow-up interviews
with the manager).
DC Investment Consulting Fund Screening
(For Participant-Directed Defined Contribution Plans only)

a fund of funds, AIR’s research process is applied to the fund of
funds, and not to each individual fund in which the fund of funds
invests. Also, when evaluating portfolio managers that may be
recommended to clients to provide portfolio services, the due
diligence typically covers the portfolio manager, not the
investments which that portfolio manager may recommend.
Each month, MSSB’s Performance Reporting Group reviews
and tests certain client accounts with performance deviating
from the average return of the applicable composite of accounts.
It then reviews how performance was calculated for these
accounts.
For alternative investments, AIR does not calculate composite
manager performance in the programs. Neither MSSB nor a
third party reviews performance information to determine or
verify its accuracy or its compliance with presentation standards
and therefore performance information may not be calculated on
a uniform or consistent basis. Generally, the manager of the
alternative investment determines the standards used to calculate
performance data.
If a new alternative investment is viewed as an appropriate
candidate by the Due Diligence Provider, the vehicle is
presented to an MSSB alternative investment product review
committee (“AIPRC”). The AIPRC consists of senior MSSB
representatives who are mandated to approve proposed
candidates and reconfirm existing vehicles on a periodic basis.
Once a new alternative investment is approved by the AIPRC,
and all required due diligence materials are verified, it receives
an “Approved” status, is placed on the Alternatives Approved
List, a list of alternative investment vehicles in which qualified
clients may invest, and is available for allocations to qualified
clients on a placement and/or advisory basis.
Certain
Alternatives Investments on the Alternatives Approved List are
available to qualified clients in the programs.
For alternative investments, valuations used for account
statement purposes and billing purposes, and for any
performance reports, are obtained from the manager of each
selected Investment Option.
These valuations (and any
corresponding benchmark index values) may be estimates, may
be several weeks old as of the dates MS&Co. produces your
account statements/reports and calculates your fees and, in the
case of index values, may be based on information from multiple
sources. The final performance figures for the applicable period
may be higher or lower, and MSSB is under no obligation to
provide notice of, or compensation to, clients for any difference
in performance.
Ongoing monitoring of managers and investment vehicles on the
Alternatives Approved List is provided by the Due Diligence
Provider. In addition to manager-specific monitoring, the
reviewer monitors overall market conditions in their specific
strategies of expertise.
MSSB may remove alternative investments from the programs if
AIR or the Due Diligence Provider of the alternative investment
downgrades the alternative investment to “Terminate”. We may
also terminate managers from these programs for other reasons
(e.g., the manager has a low level of assets under management in
the program, the manager has limited capacity for further
investment, or the manager is not complying with our policies
and procedures). Also, AIR’s head of research can remove an
alternative investment vehicle from the Alternatives Approved
List without consulting the AIPRC, but all actions must be
assessed by the AIPRC at the next meeting.
If you invest in a fund of funds, your account documents may
use the HFRI Fund of Funds as a benchmark. The FoF
Composite consists of over 800 domestic and offshore funds of
hedge funds that have at least $50 million under management or
have been actively trading for at least 12 months. It is equally
weighted on a fund by fund basis and fund assets are reported in
USD on a net of fees basis. It is updated three times a month
and the current month’s and the prior three months’ values are
subject to change. MSSB is not obligated to notify you of any
such changes. The FoF Composite values are likely to be more
up-to-date than the data for the selected Investment Options for
which it is the benchmark. You cannot invest in the FoF
Composite.
For
more
information
see
https://www.hedgefundresearch.com.
Watch Policy. MSSB has a “Watch” policy for alternative
investments on the Approved List. Watch status indicates that,
in reviewing an alternative investment, AIR or the Due
Diligence Provider has identified specific areas related to the
alternative investment, the manager of the alternative
investment, or the markets in general that (i) merit further
evaluation by AIR or the Due Diligence Provider and (ii) may,
but are not certain to, result in the removal of the alternative
investment from the “Approved List”. Putting an alternative
investment on Watch does not signify an actual change in AIR
opinion nor is it a guarantee that AIR will remove the alternative
investment. The duration of a Watch status depends on how
long AIR needs to evaluate the reason for the status change,
which may include, among things, an evaluation of the markets,
the alternative investment, and the manager of the alternative
investment.
B.
Conflicts of Interest
Advisory vs. Brokerage Accounts. MSSB and your Graystone
Consultant are likely to earn more compensation if you invest in
a program described in this Brochure than if you open a
brokerage account to buy individual securities (although, in a
brokerage account, you may not receive all the benefits of the
programs described in the Brochure). Graystone Consultants
and MSSB therefore have a financial incentive to recommend
one of these programs described in this Brochure. We address
this conflict of interest by disclosing it to you and by requiring
Graystone Consultants’ supervisors to review your account at
account-opening to ensure that it is suitable for you in light of
matters such as your investment objectives and financial
circumstances.
Calculating Portfolio Managers’ Performance
In the programs described in this Brochure, we calculate
performance using a proprietary system.
Payments from Managers. Managers may also sponsor their
own educational conferences and pay expenses of Financial
Advisors attending these events. MSSB’s policies require that
19
the training or educational portion of these conferences
comprises substantially the entire event. Managers may sponsor
educational meetings or seminars in which clients as well as
Financial Advisors are invited to participate.
MSSB as Placement Agent. MSSB also acts as placement agent
for certain alternative investments whereby such investments are
available through MSSB on a non-advisory basis. When an
alternative investment is purchased on a placement basis,
different terms and conditions, including different fee
arrangements, may apply. For example, when a client invests on
a placement basis, they do not pay an ongoing advisory fee,
however, they pay an upfront placement fee and the program
manager receives a higher program participation fee which is
shared with MSSB and its Graystone Consultants. A Client
investing on an advisory basis may pay higher fees, in the
aggregate, than if such investment had been made on a
placement basis.
Managers are allowed to occasionally give nominal gifts to
Financial Advisors, and to occasionally entertain Financial
Advisors, subject to a limit of $1,000 per employee per year.
MSSB’s non-cash compensation policies set conditions for each
of these types of payments, and do not permit any gifts or
entertainment c o n d i t i o n e d o n a c h i e v i n g a s a l e s t a r g e t .
We address conflicts of interest by ensuring that any payments
described in this “Payments to Managers” section do not relate
to any particular transactions or investment made by MSSB
clients with managers. Managers participating in programs
described in this Brochure are not required to make any of these
types of payments. The payments described in this section
comply with FINRA rules relating to such activities. Please see
the discussion of Global and Emerging Partners under “Funds in
Advisory Programs” in Item 4.C for more information.
Different Advice. MSSB, MS & Co., and their affiliates may
give different advice, take different action, receive more or less
compensation, or hold or deal in different securities for any other
party, client or account (including their own accounts or those of
their affiliates) from the advice given, actions taken,
compensation received or securities held or dealt for your
account.
Payments from Mutual Funds. Please see the discussion of
payments from fund companies under “Funds in Advisory
Programs” in Item 4.C.
Trading or Issuing Securities in, or Linked to Securities in,
Client Accounts. MSSB, MS & Co. and their affiliates may
provide bids and offers, and may act as a principal market
maker, in respect of the same securities held in client accounts.
MSSB, the investment managers in its programs, MS & Co., and
their affiliates and employees may hold a position (long or short)
in the same securities held in client accounts. MS & Co., MSSB
and/or their affiliates are regular issuers of traded financial
instruments linked to securities that may be purchased in client
accounts. From time to time, the trading of MSSB, a manager or
their affiliates – both for their proprietary accounts and for client
accounts – may be detrimental to securities held by a client and
thus create a conflict of interest. We address this conflict by
disclosing it to you.
Payments from Managers of Alternative Investments.
Managers of alternative investments offered in the programs
described in this Brochure may agree to pay MSSB additional
fees. We have a conflict of interest in offering alternative
investments because we or our affiliates earn more money in
your account from your investments in alternative investments
than from other investment options. However, in cases where
we receive a portion of the management fee paid by you to a
manager of an alternative investment and we charge a program
fee under the programs in this Brochure, we credit such fee to
your account. Also, we do not share this money with your
Graystone Consultant (i.e. the compensation we pay to your
Graystone Consultant is not affected by the payments we receive
from the alternative investments). Therefore, your Graystone
Consultant does not have a resulting incentive to buy alternative
investments in your account, or to buy certain alternative
investments rather than other alternative investments in any of
the programs in this Brochure.
Trade Allocations. In certain cases trades may be aggregated so
that the securities will be sold or purchased for more than one
client in order to obtain favorable execution to the extent
permitted by law. The investment manager will then allocate the
trade in a manner that is equitable and consistent with its
fiduciary duty to its clients (including pro rata allocation,
random allocation or rotation allocation). Allocation methods
vary depending on various factors (including the type of
investment, the number of shares purchased or sold, the size of
the accounts, and the amount of available cash or the size of an
existing position in an account). The price to each client is the
average price for the aggregate order.
Affiliate Acting as Portfolio Manager. Where permitted by
law, and except for plan accounts, an affiliate of MSSB may
have been selected to act as the manager for one or more your

money than from other investment options. MSSB and the
Graystone Consultant are also likely to earn more compensation
if you invest in a program described in this Brochure than if you
open a brokerage account to buy individual securities.
Services Provided to Other Clients. MSSB, MS & Co.
investment managers and their affiliates provide a variety of
services (including research, brokerage, asset management,
trading, lending and investment banking services) for each other
and for various clients, including issuers of securities that MSSB
may recommend for purchase or sale by clients or are otherwise
held in client accounts, and investment management firms in the
programs described in this Brochure. MSSB, MS & Co.
investment managers and their affiliates receive compensation
and fees in connection with these services. MSSB believes that
the nature and range of clients to which such services are
rendered is such that it would be inadvisable to exclude
These relationships create a conflict of interest for us or our
affiliates, as there is a financial incentive to recommend the
investments. We address this conflict of interest by disclosing it
to you and by requiring Graystone Consultants’ supervisors to
review your account at account-opening to ensure that it is
suitable for you in light of matters such as your investment
objectives and financial circumstances.

Accordingly, it is likely that securities in an account will include
some of the securities of companies for which MSSB, MS &
Co., investment managers and their affiliates perform investment
banking or other services.
which MSSB trades for client accounts and in which MSSB or
its affiliates own interests may change from time to time. You
may contact your Financial Advisor for an up-to-date list of
Trading Systems in which MSSB or its affiliates own interests
and on which MSSB and/or MS&Co. trades for client accounts.
Certain Trading Systems offer cash credits for orders that
provide liquidity to their books and charge explicit fees for
orders that extract liquidity from their books. From time to time,
the amount of credits that MSSB and/or MS&Co. receive from
one or more Trading System may exceed the amount that is
charged. Under these limited circumstances, such payments
would constitute payment for order flow.
Restrictions on Securities Transactions. There may be periods
during which MSSB or investment managers are not permitted
to initiate or recommend certain types of transactions in the
securities of issuers for which MS & Co. or one of its affiliates is
performing broker-dealer or investment banking services or has
confidential or material non-public information. Furthermore, in
certain investment advisory programs, MSSB may be compelled
to forgo trading in, or providing advice regarding, Morgan
Stanley Parent securities, and in certain related securities. These
restrictions may adversely impact your account performance.
Certain Trading Systems through which MSSB and/or MS&Co.
may directly or indirectly effect client trades execute
transactions on a “blind” basis, so that a party to a transaction
does not know the identity of the counterparty to the transaction.
It is possible that an order for a client account that is executed
through such a Trading System could be automatically matched
with a counterparty that is (i) another investment advisory or
brokerage client of MSSB or one of its affiliates or (ii) MSSB or
one of its affiliates acting for its own proprietary accounts.
MSSB, the managers and their affiliates may also develop
analyses and/or evaluations of securities sold in a program
described in this Brochure, as well as buy and sell interests in
securities on behalf of its proprietary or client accounts. These
analyses, evaluations and purchase and sale activities are
proprietary and confidential, and MSSB will not disclose them
to clients. MSSB may not be able to act, in respect of clients’
account, on any such information, analyses or evaluations.
Affiliated Sweep Investments. MSSB has a conflict of interest
in selecting or recommending BDP or Money Market Funds as
the Sweep Investment.
See Item 4.C above for more
information.
MSSB, investment managers and their affiliates are not
obligated to effect any transaction that MSSB or a manager or
any of their affiliates believe would violate federal or state law,
or the regulations of any regulatory or self-regulatory body.
Transaction-Related Agreements with MS & Co., Citigroup
Global Markets Inc. (“CGM”) and Affiliates. In connection
with creating the joint venture, certain agreements were entered
into between or involving some or all of MSSB, MS & Co,
CGM and their affiliates. Some of these agreements, including
the following, remain in effect even though MSSB is now a
wholly owned subsidiary of Morgan Stanley Parent:
Research Reports. MS & Co. does business with companies
covered by their respective research groups. Furthermore, MS &
Co. and its affiliates and client accounts may hold a trading
position (long or short) in the securities of companies subject to
such research. Therefore, MS & Co. has a conflict of interest
that could affect the objectivity of its research reports.
Certain Trading Systems. MSSB may effect trades on behalf of
client accounts through exchanges, electronic communication
networks or other alternative trading systems (“Trading
Systems”), including Trading Systems in which MSSB or its
affiliates may have a direct or indirect ownership interest, or on
which MSSB or its affiliates may have a board seat. In certain
instances, MSSB and/or its affiliates may be deemed to control
one or more of such Trading Systems based on the level of such
ownership interest, and whether MSSB or its affiliates are
represented on the board of such Trading Systems. If MSSB
directly or indirectly effects client trades through Trading
Systems in which MSSB or its affiliates have an ownership
interest, MSSB or its affiliates may receive an indirect
economic benefit based on their ownership interest. In addition,
subject at all times to its obligations to obtain best execution for
its customers’ orders, it is contemplated that MSSB will route
certain customer order flow to its affiliates. Currently, MSSB
and/or its affiliates (including affiliates of MS&Co.) own over
5% of the voting securities of certain Trading Systems, including
BATS Global Markets, Inc. (commonly known as “BATS”);
BIDS Holdings LLC (commonly known as “BIDS”); MTS
Portugal; iSWAP; The MuniCenter; BOX Options Exchange,
LLC; OTC DerivNet; and TradeWeb. The Trading Systems on

Order Flow. An agreement that, subject to best execution,
MSSB will transmit an agreed percentage of client orders
for the purchase and sale of securities to MS&Co and its
affiliates. MSSB has a conflict of interest in transmitting
client orders to these entities.

Distribution. An agreement that, in return for the payment
of certain fees and expenses, MSSB will market and
promote certain securities and other products underwritten,
distributed or sponsored by MS & Co. or their affiliates.
MSSB has a conflict of interest in offering, recommending
or purchasing any such security or other product to or for its
investment advisory clients.

Investment Research. An agreement that MS & Co. and
CGM (or their applicable affiliates) will supply investment
research prepared by their respective research groups to
MSSB for its use. The investment research agreement with
CGM expires on March 31, 2014. It is possible that MS &
Co.’s research group, on the one hand, and CGM’s research
group, on the other hand, may reach different conclusions,
and may make different recommendations, with respect to
the same issuer or investment manager. This may, among
other things, result in different investment decisions or
recommendations regarding the same issuer or investment
manager being made for or given to MSSB investment
advisory clients.

In 2004, the NYSE brought an administrative action alleging
that MS & Co. and MSDW (1) failed to ensure delivery of
prospectuses in connection with certain sales of securities;
(2) failed to timely and accurately file daily program trade
reports; (3) erroneously executed certain sell orders on a
minus tick for securities in which MS & Co. held a short
position; (4) failed to timely submit RE-3 in connection with
certain matters; (5) hired certain individuals subject to
statutory disqualification and failed to file fingerprint cards
for certain non-registered employees; (6) failed to comply
with requirements concerning certain market-on-close and
limit-on-close orders; and (7) failed to reasonably supervise
certain activities. MS & Co. and MSDW resolved the action
on January 7, 2005, by consenting, without admitting or
denying guilt, to a censure, a fine of $13 million, and a
rescission offer to those clients who should have received a
prospectus during the period from June 2003 to September
2004.

In January 2005, the SEC filed a complaint in federal court
alleging that, during 1999 and 2000, MS & Co. violated
Regulation M by attempting to induce certain customers who
received allocations of IPOs to place purchase orders for
additional shares in the aftermarket. The SEC did not allege
fraud or impact on the market. On January 25, 2005, MS &
Co. agreed to the entry of a judgment enjoining MS & Co.
from future violations and the payment of a $40 million civil
penalty. The settlement terms received court approval on
February 4, 2005.

In March 2005, the SEC entered an administrative and cease
and desist order against CGM for two disclosure failures by
CGM in offering and selling mutual fund shares. Firstly,
CGM received from mutual fund advisers and distributors
revenue sharing payments, in exchange for which CGM
granted mutual funds preferential sales treatment. The order
found that CGM did not adequately disclose its revenue
sharing program to its clients, in violation of the Securities
Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”) and Rule 10b-10 under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”).
Secondly, on sales of Class B mutual fund shares in amounts
aggregating $50,000 or more, the order found that CGM, in
violation of the Securities Act, failed to disclose adequately
at the point of sale that such shares were subject to higher
annual fees. These fees could have a negative impact on
client investment returns, depending on the amount invested
and the intended holding period. The SEC order censured
CGM, required CGM to cease and desist from future

violations of the applicable provisions, and required CGM to
pay a $20 million penalty.


The SEC censured SBFM and CGM and ordered them to
cease and desist from violations of sections 206(1) and
206(2) of the Advisers Act. The order required Citi to pay
$208.1 million, including $109 million in disgorgement of
profits, $19.1 million in interest, and a civil money penalty of
$80 million. Approximately $24.4 million has already been
paid to the Smith Barney Funds, primarily through fee
waivers. The remaining $183.7 million, including the
penalty, has been paid to the U.S. Treasury.
In March 2005, the NASD censured and fined CGM with
respect to CGM’s offer and sale of Class B and Class C
mutual fund shares during 2002 and the first six months of
2003. The NASD found that CGM either had not adequately
disclosed at the point of sale, or had not adequately
considered in connection with its recommendations to clients
to purchase Class B and Class C shares, the differences in
share classes and that an equal investment in Class A shares
generally would have been more advantageous for the
clients. The NASD also found that CGM’s supervisory and
compliance policies and procedures regarding Class B and
Class C shares had not been reasonably designed to ensure
that SB Financial Consultants consistently provided adequate
disclosure of, or consideration to, the benefits of the various
mutual fund share classes as they applied to individual
clients. The NASD censured CGM and required CGM to pay
a $6.25 million fine.
The order required SBFM to recommend a new transfer agent
contract to the Smith Barney Fund Boards within 180 days of
the entry of the order; if a Citi affiliate submitted a proposal
to serve as transfer agent or sub-transfer agent, an
independent monitor must be engaged at the expense of
SBFM and CGM to oversee a competitive bidding process.
Under the order, Citi also must comply with an amended
version of a vendor policy that Citi instituted in August 2004.
That policy, as amended, among other things, requires that
when requested by a Smith Barney Fund Board, CAM will
retain at its own expense an independent consulting expert to
advise and assist the Board on the selection of certain service
providers affiliated with Citi.
On May 31, 2005, the SEC issued an order in connection
with the settlement of an administrative proceeding against
Smith Barney Fund Management LLC (“SBFM”) and CGM
relating to the appointment of an affiliated transfer agent for
the Smith Barney family of mutual funds (“Smith Barney
Funds”). SBFM was an affiliate of CGM during the
applicable period.
The SEC order found that SBFM and CGM willfully violated
section 206(1) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940
(“Advisers Act”). Specifically, the order found that SBFM
and CGM knowingly or recklessly failed to disclose to the
Boards of the Smith Barney Funds in 1999 when proposing a
new transfer agent arrangement with an affiliated transfer
agent that: First Data Investors Services Group (“First
Data”), the Smith Barney Funds’ then-existing transfer agent,
had offered to continue as transfer agent and do the same
work for substantially less money than before; and Citigroup
Asset Management (“CAM”), the Citi business unit that
includes the Smith Barney Funds’ investment manager and
other investment advisory companies, had entered into a side
letter with First Data under which CAM agreed to
recommend the appointment of First Data as sub-transfer
agent to the affiliated transfer agent in exchange, among
other things, for a guarantee by First Data of specified
amounts of asset management and investment banking fees to
CAM and CGM. The order also found that SBFM and CGM
willfully violated section 206(2) of the Advisers Act by
virtue of the omissions discussed above and other
misrepresentations and omissions in the materials provided to
the Smith Barney Funds’ Boards, including the failure to
make clear that the affiliated transfer agent would earn a high
profit for performing limited functions while First Data
continued to perform almost all of the transfer agent
functions, and the suggestion that the proposed arrangement
was in the Smith Barney Funds’ best interests and that no
viable alternatives existed. SBFM and CGM did not admit or
deny any wrongdoing or liability. The settlement did not
establish wrongdoing or liability for purposes of any other
proceeding.


In a LAWC dated August 1, 2005, the NASD found that
MSDW failed to establish and maintain a supervisory
system, including written procedures, reasonably designed to
review and monitor MSDW’s fee-based brokerage business,
between January 2001 and December 2003. Without
admitting or denying the allegations, MSDW consented to
the described sanctions and findings and was censured and
fined $1.5 million, and agreed to the payment of restitution to
3,549 customers in the total amount of approximately $4.7
million, plus interest.

The SEC alleged that MS & Co. violated the Exchange Act
by inadvertently failing to timely produce emails to the SEC
staff pursuant to subpoenas in the SEC’s investigation into
MS & Co.’s practices in allocating shares of stock in IPOs
and an investigation into conflicts of interest between MS &
Co.’s research and investment banking practices. Without
admitting or denying the allegations, MS & Co. consented to
a final judgment on May 12, 2006 in which it was
permanently restrained and enjoined from violating the
Exchange Act. MS & Co. agreed to make payments
aggregating $15 million, which amount was reduced by $5
million contemporaneously paid by MS & Co. to the NASD
and the NYSE in related proceedings. MS & Co. also agreed
to notify the SEC, the NASD and the NYSE that it has
adopted and implemented policies and procedures reasonably
designed to ensure compliance with the Exchange Act. MS &
Co. also agreed to provide annual training to its employees
responsible for preserving or producing electronic
communications and agreed to retain an independent
consultant to review and comment on the implementation and
effectiveness of the policies, procedures and training.

On June 27, 2006, the SEC announced the initiation and
concurrent settlement of administrative cease and desist
proceedings against MS & Co. and MSDW for failing to
maintain and enforce adequate written policies and
procedures to prevent the misuse of material nonpublic
information. The SEC found that from 1997 through 2006,
MS & Co. and MSDW violated the Exchange Act and the
Advisers Act by failing to (1) conduct any surveillance of a
number of accounts and securities; (2) provide adequate
guidance to MS & Co.’s and MSDW’s personnel charged
with conducting surveillance; and (3) have adequate controls
in place with respect to certain aspects of “Watch List”
maintenance. The SEC’s findings covered different areas
from the 1997 through 2006 time period. MS & Co. and
MSDW were ordered to pay a civil money penalty of $10
million and agreed to enhance their policies and procedures.

to changes to those procedures, and to develop a better plan
of distribution.
On August 21, 2006, MS & Co. and MSDW entered into a
LAWC relating various finds that, at various times between
July 1999 and 2005, MS & Co. violated a number of NASD
and SEC rules. The violations related to areas including trade
reporting through the Nasdaq Market Center (formerly
Automated Confirmation Transaction Service (ACT)), Trade
Reporting and Compliance Engine (TRACE) and Order
Audit Trail System (OATS); market making activities;
trading practices; short sales; and large options positions
reports. The NASD also found that, at various times during
December 2002 and May 2005, MSDW violated NASD rules
and Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (“MSRB”) rules
related to areas including trade reporting through TRACE,
short sales, and OATS. The NASD further found that, in
certain cases, MS & Co. and MSDW violated NASD Rule
3010 because their supervisory systems did not provide
supervision reasonably designed to achieve compliance with
securities laws, regulations and/or rules.

On July 13, 2007, the NYSE issued a Hearing Board
Decision in connection with the settlement of an enforcement
proceeding brought in conjunction with the New Jersey
Bureau of Securities against CGM. The decision held that
CGM failed to (1) adequately supervise certain branch
offices and Financial Advisors who engaged in deceptive
mutual fund market timing on behalf of certain clients from
January 2000 through September 2003 (in both proprietary
and non-proprietary funds); (2) prevent the Financial
Advisors from engaging in this conduct; and (3) make and
keep adequate books and records. Without admitting or
denying the findings, CGM agreed to (a) a censure; (b)
establishing a $35 million distribution fund for disgorgement
payments; (c) a penalty of $10 million (half to be paid to the
NYSE and half to be paid to the distribution fund); (d) a
penalty of $5 million to be paid to the State of New Jersey;
and (e) appointing a consultant to develop a plan to pay
CGM’s clients affected by the market timing.

On September 27, 2007, MS & Co. entered into a LAWC
with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”).
FINRA found that, from October 2001 through March 2005,
MSDW provided inaccurate information to arbitration
claimants and regulators regarding the existence of preSeptember 11, 2001 emails, failed to provide such emails in
response to discovery requests and regulatory inquiries,
failed adequately to preserve books and records, and failed to
establish and maintain systems and written procedures
reasonably designed to preserve required records and to
ensure that it conducted adequate searches in response to
regulatory inquiries and discovery requests. FINRA also
found that MSDW failed to provide arbitration claimants
with updates to a supervisory manual in discovery from late
1999 through the end of 2005. MS & Co. agreed, without
admitting or denying these findings, to establish a $9.5
million fund for the benefit of potentially affected arbitration
claimants. In addition, MS & Co. was censured and agreed to
pay a $3 million regulatory fine and to retain an independent
consultant to review its procedures for complying with
discovery requirements in arbitration proceedings relating to
its retail brokerage operations.

On October 10, 2007, MS & Co. became the subject of an
Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-And-Desist
Proceedings (“October 2007 Order”) by the SEC. The
October 2007 Order found that, from 2000 until 2005, MS &
Co. and MSDW failed to provide to their retail customers
accurate and complete written trade confirmations for certain
fixed income securities in violation of the Exchange Act and
MSRB rules. In addition, MS & Co. was ordered to cease and
desist from committing or causing any future violations, and
was required to pay a $7.5 million penalty and to retain an
independent consultant to review MS & Co.’s applicable
policies and procedures. MS & Co. consented to the issuance
of the October 2007 Order without admitting or denying the
SEC’s findings.

On December 18, 2007, MS & Co. became the subject of an
Order
Instituting
Administrative
Cease-and-Desist
Without admitting or denying the findings, MS & Co. and
MSDW consented to the LAWC. In the LAWC, MS & Co.
and MSDW were censured, required to pay a monetary fine
of $2.9 million and agreed to make restitution to the parties
involved in certain transactions, plus interest, from the date
of the violative conduct until the date of the LAWC. MS &
Co. and MSDW also consented to (1) revise their written
supervisory procedures; and (2) provide a report that
described the corrective action that they completed during the
year preceding the LAWC to address regulatory issues and
violations addressed in the LAWC, and the ongoing
corrective action that they were in the process of completing.

On May 9, 2007, the SEC issued an Order (“May 2007
Order”) settling an administrative action with MS & Co. In
this matter, the SEC found that MS & Co. violated its duty of
best execution under the Exchange Act. In particular, the
SEC found that, during the period of October 24, 2001
through December 8, 2004, MS & Co.’s proprietary marketmaking system failed to provide best execution to certain
retail OTC orders. In December 2004, MS & Co. removed
the computer code in the proprietary market-making system
that caused the best execution violations. MS & Co.
consented, without admitting or denying the findings, to a
censure, to cease and desist from committing or causing
future violations, to pay disgorgement of approximately $5.9
million plus prejudgment interest on that amount, and to pay
a civil penalty of $1.5 million. MS & Co. also consented to
retain an Independent Compliance Consultant to review its
policies and procedures in connection with its market-making
system’s order handling procedures and its controls relating
24
Proceedings (“December 2007 Order”) by the SEC. The
December 2007 Order found that, from January 2002 until
August 2003, MSDW (1) failed to reasonably supervise four
Financial Advisors, with a view to preventing and detecting
their mutual fund market-timing activities and (2) violated
the Investment Company Act of 1940 by allowing multiple
mutual fund trades that were placed or amended after the
close of trading to be priced at that day’s closing net asset
value. The December 2007 Order also found that, from 2000
through 2003, MSDW violated the Exchange Act by not
making and keeping records of customer orders placed after
the market close and orders placed for certain hedge fund
customers in variable annuity sub-accounts. Without
admitting or denying the SEC’s findings, MS & Co. agreed
to a censure, to cease and desist from future violations of the
applicable provisions, to pay a penalty of approximately
$11.9 million, to disgorge profits related to the trading
activity (including prejudgment interest) of approximately
$5.1 million and to retain an independent distribution
consultant.

In May 2005, MS & Co. and MSDW discovered that, from
about January 1997 until May 2005, their order entry systems
did not check whether certain secondary market securities
transactions complied with state registration requirements
known as Blue Sky laws. This resulted in the improper sale
of securities that were not registered in 46 state and territorial
jurisdictions. MS & Co. and MSDW conducted an internal
investigation, repaired system errors, self-reported the
problem to all affected states and the New York Stock
Exchange, identified transactions which were executed in
violation of the Blue Sky laws, and offered rescission to
affected customers. MS & Co. settled the state regulatory
issues in a multi-state settlement with the 46 affected state
and territorial jurisdictions. Under the settlement, MS & Co.
consented to a cease and desist order with, and agreed to pay
a total civil monetary penalty of $8.5 million to be divided
among, each of the 46 state and territorial jurisdictions. The
first order was issued by Alabama on March 19, 2008, and
orders are expected to be issued by subsequent states over the
coming months.

On August 13, 2008, MS & Co. agreed on the general terms
of a settlement with the NYAG and the Office of the Illinois
Secretary of State, Securities Department (“Illinois”) (on
behalf of a task force of the North American Securities
Administrators Association (“NASAA”)) with respect to the
sale of auction rate securities (“ARS”). MS & Co. agreed,
among other things, to repurchase at par approximately $4.5
billion of illiquid ARS held by certain clients of MS & Co.
which were purchased prior to February 13, 2008.
Additionally, MS & Co. agreed to pay a total fine of $35
million. Final agreements were entered into with the NYAG
on June 2, 2009 and with Illinois on September 17, 2009. The
Illinois agreement serves as the template for agreements with
other NASAA jurisdictions.

matter jurisdiction, which were admitted, consented to the
entry in the civil action of a Judgment As To Defendant
Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (“November 2008
Judgment”). Thereafter, on December 11, 2008, the SEC
filed its civil action in the federal district court for the
Southern District of New York (“Court”). The November
2008 Judgment, which was entered on December 23, 2008 (i)
permanently enjoined CGM from directly or indirectly
violating section 15(c) of the Exchange Act; (ii) provides
that, on later motion of the SEC, the Court is to determine
whether it is appropriate to order that CGM pay a civil
penalty pursuant to section 21(d)(3) of the Exchange Act, and
if so, the amount of the civil penalty; and (iii) ordered that
CGM’s Consent be incorporated into the November 2008
Judgment and that CGM comply with all of the undertakings
and agreements in the Consent, which include an offer to buy
back at par certain ARS from certain customers. The SEC’s
complaint alleged that (1) CGM misled tens of thousands of
its customers regarding the fundamental nature of and risks
associated with ARS that CGM underwrote, marketed and
sold; (2) through its financial advisers, sales personnel and
marketing materials, CGM misrepresented to customers that
ARS were safe, highly liquid investments comparable to
money market instruments; (3) as a result, numerous CGM
customers invested in ARS funds they needed to have
available on a short-term basis; (4) in mid-February 2008,
CGM decided to stop supporting the auctions; and (5) as a
result of the failed auctions, tens of thousands of CGM
customers held approximately $45 billion of illiquid ARS,
instead of the liquid short-term investments CGM had
represented ARS to be. CGM reached substantially similar
settlements with the NYAG and the Texas State Securities
Board (“TSSB”), although those settlements were
administrative in nature and neither involved the filing of a
civil action in state court. The settlements with the NYAG
and the TSSB differed somewhat from the settlement with
the SEC in that the state settlements (a) made findings that
CGM failed to preserve certain recordings of telephone calls
involving the ARS trading desk; and (b) required CGM to
refund certain underwriting fees to certain municipal issuers.
In addition, as part of the settlement with New York, CGM
paid a civil penalty of $50 million. CGM also agreed in
principle to pay to states other than New York with which it
enters into formal settlements a total of $50 million. CGM
paid $3.59 million of this $50 million to Texas as part of the
settlement with that state. CGM expects it will reach
settlements with the remaining states.

On November 13, 2008, in connection with the settlement of
a civil action arising out of an investigation by the SEC into
CGM’s underwriting, marketing and sale of ARS, CGM,

complaint, except as to those relating to personal and subject

On March 25, 2009, MS & Co. entered into a LAWC with
FINRA. FINRA found that, from 1998 through 2003,
MSDW failed to reasonably supervise the activities of two
Financial Advisors in one of its branches. FINRA found that
these Financial Advisors solicited brokerage and investment
advisory business from retirees and potential retirees of
certain large companies by promoting unrealistic investment
returns and failing to disclose material information. FINRA
also held that MS & Co. failed to ensure that the securities
and accounts recommended for the retirees were properly
reviewed for appropriate risk disclosure, suitability and other
concerns. MS & Co. consented, without admitting or denying
the findings, to a censure, a fine of $3 million, and restitution
of approximately $2.4 million plus interest to 90 former
clients of the Financial Advisors.

Consulting Group Advisory Services LLC). If you invest your
assets and use an affiliated firm to manage your account, MSSB
and its affiliates earn more money than if you use an unaffiliated
firm. Generally, for Retirement Plans, MSSB rebates or offsets
fees so that MSSB complies with IRS and Department of Labor
rules and regulations.
MSSB’s Form ADV Part 1 contains further information about its
disciplinary history, and is available on request from your
Graystone Consultant.

Restrictions on Executing Trades. As MSSB is affiliated
with MS & Co. and its affiliates, the following restrictions apply
when executing client trades:

MSSB and MS & Co. generally do not act as principal in
executing trades for MSSB investment advisory clients
(except to the extent permitted by a program and the law).
See Item 4.C above for a description of cash sweep investments
managed or held by related persons of MSSB.

Regulatory restrictions may limit your ability to purchase,
hold or sell equity and debt issued by Morgan Stanley
Parent and its affiliates.
See Item 6.B above for a description of various conflicts of
interest.
Certain regulatory requirements may limit MSSB’s ability
to execute transactions through alternative execution
services (e.g., electronic communication networks and
crossing networks) owned by MSSB, MS & Co. or their
affiliates.
These restrictions may adversely impact client account
performance.

Code of Ethics
MSSB’s Investment Adviser Code of Ethics (“Code”) applies to
its employees, supervisors, officers and directors engaged in
offering or providing investment advisory products and/or
services (collectively, the “Employees”). In essence, the Code
prohibits Employees from engaging in securities transactions or
activities that involve a material conflict of interest, possible
diversion of a corporate opportunity, or the appearance of
impropriety. Employees must always place the interests of
MSSB’s clients above their own and must never use knowledge
of client transactions acquired in the course of their work to their

affiliation with MS & Co. and its affiliates.

supervision to detect and prevent any violations of the Code by
the individuals, branches and departments that they supervise.
investment objectives have changed. If your objectives change,
your Graystone Consultant will modify your asset allocation to
be suitable for your needs.
The Code generally operates to protect against conflicts of
interest either by subjecting Employee activities to specified
limitations (including pre-approval requirements) or by
prohibiting certain activities. Key provisions of the Code
include:
For Graystone discretionary service accounts, your Graystone
Consultant is then responsible for reviewing your account on an
ongoing basis and may adjust your portfolio and will
recommend different asset allocations at any time according to
market conditions. Your Graystone Consultant will ask you at
least annually if your investment objectives have changed. If
your objectives change, Graystone Consultant will modify your
portfolio to be suitable for your needs.


An Employee who wishes to conduct business activity
outside of his or her employment with MSSB, regardless of
whether that Employee receives compensation for this
activity, must first obtain written authorization from his or
her supervisor. (Outside activities include serving as an
officer or director of a business organization or non-profit
entity, and accepting compensation from any person or
organization other than MSSB.)
Employees cannot enter into a lending arrangement with a
client (unless they receive prior written approval from their
supervisor and MSSB’s Compliance Department).

MSSB maintains a “Restricted List” of issuers for which it
may have material non-public information or other conflicts
of interest. Employees cannot, for themselves or their
clients, trade in securities of issuers on the “Restricted List”
(unless they receive prior written approval from the
Compliance department).

Client Referrals and Other Compensation
See “Payments from Mutual Funds” and “Payments from
Managers” in Item 6.B above.
Employees are generally prohibited from giving or receiving
gifts or gratuities greater than $100 per recipient per
calendar year to or from persons or organizations with
which MSSB has a current or potential business
relationship, clients, or persons connected with another
financial institution, a securities or commodities exchange,
the media, or a government or quasi-governmental entity.


See Item 4.A above for a discussion of account statements and
performance reporting.
MSSB’s Professional Alliance Group program allows certain
unaffiliated third parties to refer clients to MSSB. If the client
invests in an investment advisory program, MSSB pays the third
party an ongoing referral fee (generally about 25% of the portion
of the client fee that MSSB would otherwise allocate to the
Financial Advisor). MSSB may pay a fee greater or less than
25% depending on the facts and circumstances of the
relationship.
Financial Information
MSSB is not required to include a balance sheet in this Brochure
because MSSB does not require or solicit prepayment of more
than $1,200 in fees per client, six months or more in advance.
Certain Employees, because of their potential access to nonpublic information, must obtain their supervisors’ prior
written approval or provide pre-trade notification before
executing certain securities transactions for their personal
securities accounts. All Employees must also follow special
procedures for investing in private securities transactions.
MSSB does not have any financial conditions that are reasonably
likely to impair its ability to meet its contractual commitments to
clients.
MSSB and its predecessors have not been the subject of a
bankruptcy petition during the past ten years.
Certain Employees are subject to further restrictions on their
securities transaction activities (including Financial
Advisors and other MSSB employees who act as portfolio
managers in MSSB investment advisory programs).
You may obtain a copy of the Code of Ethics from your
Graystone Consultant.
See Item 6.B above.
Reviewing Accounts
At account opening, your Graystone Consultant must ensure
that, and the Branch Manager (or the Branch Manager’s
designee) confirms that, the account and the investment style are
suitable investments for you.
For traditional institutional consulting service accounts, your
Graystone Consultant is then responsible for reviewing your
account on an ongoing basis and will recommend different asset
allocations at any time according to market conditions. Your
Graystone Consultant will ask you at least annually if your

Exhibit: Affiliated Money Market Funds Fee Disclosure Statement and Float Disclosure Statement
Sweep Vehicles in Retirement Accounts and CESAs
Since the dates below (“Effective Dates”), the following “Retirement Plan Accounts” (IRAs, Employee Benefit Trusts
(“EBTs”), Retirement Plan Manager (“RPM” accounts) and Versatile Investment Program (“VIP”) accounts) and Coverdell
Education Savings Accounts (“CESAs”) have generally been effecting temporary sweep transactions of new uninvested cash
balances into Deposit Accounts established under the Bank Deposit Program: (although MSSB Retirement Plan Accounts
formerly at Citi and/or Smith Barney did not begin using BDP as the Sweep Investment until MSSB completed the merger of
its investment advisory programs in 2012):

September 17, 2007 for “IRAs” (e.g., Traditional, Roth, Rollover, SEP, SAR-SEP, SIMPLE), and

May 19, 2008 for the remaining Retirement Plan Accounts (i.e., EBT, RPM and VIP accounts) and CESAs.
Before the Effective Dates, MSSB affected such sweep transactions using the Morgan Stanley money market funds listed in
the table below as follows (although MSSB Retirement Plan Accounts formerly at Citi and/or Smith Barney did not begin
using these Morgan Stanley money market funds as the Sweep Investment until some time after the Effective Date):
o IRAs or CESAs in advisory programs swept into the Morgan Stanley Liquid Asset Fund Inc. (“ILAF”) and
o all other Retirement Plan Accounts in advisory programs swept into one or a number of different proprietary mutual
funds (which could have included ILAF) depending on the type of account and the advisory program.
As of the Effective Dates, any existing balances in these Morgan Stanley money market funds remained in the funds, pending
use for account charges and other purposes. Therefore, these accounts could still maintain cash balances in these funds.
Now, as an alternative to the Deposit Account, Retirement Plan Accounts and CESAs can choose to sweep into ILAF.
For Retirement Plan Accounts that swept into affiliated money market funds before the Effective Dates and continue to hold
cash amounts in these funds, or that now select one of these funds:

any fee designated in the table below as “Advisory Fee” received by an MSSB affiliate is offset against the advisory
program fees and

any fees designated in the table as “Distribution and Service Fees” received by MSSB or its affiliates is credited to the
account.
Accordingly, changes in these fees over time did not affect the fees paid by Retirement Plan Accounts.
Interest Earned on Float
If MSSB is the custodian of your account, MSSB may retain as compensation, for providing services, the account’s
proportionate share of any interest earned on cash balances held by MSSB (or an affiliate) with respect to assets awaiting
investment including:

new deposits to the account (including interest and dividends) and

uninvested assets held by the account caused by an instruction to the custodian to buy and sell securities (which may,
after the period described below, be automatically swept into a sweep vehicle).
This interest is generally at the prevailing Federal Funds interest rate.
Generally, with respect to such assets awaiting investment:
o when the custodian receives the assets on a day on which the NYSE is open (“Business Day”) and before the NYSE
closes, the custodian earns interest through the end of the following Business Day and
o when the custodian receives the assets on a Business Day but after the NYSE closes, or on a day which is not a
Business Day, the custodian earns interest through the end of the second following Business Day.
MSSB as an ERISA fiduciary
If MSSB is a fiduciary (as that term is defined under ERISA or the Code) with respect to the Retirement Plan Account, the
table below describes the fees and expenses charged to assets invested in shares of the money market funds in which the
account invests (expressed as a percentage of each fund’s average daily net assets for the stated fiscal year). Note that:

The rate of Advisory Fee and Distribution and Service Fees (including 12b-1 fees) (whether in basis points or dollars)
may not be increased without first obtaining shareholder approval.
28

Expenses designated as “Other Expenses” include all expenses not otherwise disclosed in the table that were deducted
from each fund’s assets or charged to all shareholder accounts in the stated fiscal year (and may change from year to
year).
These fees and expenses may be paid to MSSB and its affiliates for services performed. The aggregate amount of these fees
is stated in the tables below. The amounts of expenses deducted from a fund’s assets are shown in each fund’s statement of
operations in its annual report.
Morgan Stanley Investment Management (and/or its affiliates) may, from time to time, waive part of its advisory fee or
assume or reimburse some of a fund’s operating expenses. (This may be for a limited duration.) Such actions are noted in the
fund’s prospectus and/or statement of additional information. The table below shows the Total Annual Fund Operating
Expenses (before management fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements) and the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses
After Fee Waivers and/or Expense Reimbursements.
MSSB believes that investing in shares of the funds for sweep purposes may be appropriate for Retirement Plans because
using professionally managed money market funds allows you to access cash on an immediate basis, while providing a rate
of return on your cash positions pending investment. As is typical of such arrangements, we use only affiliated money funds
for this purpose.
MSSB also believes that investing a Retirement Plan’s assets in the Deposit Accounts may also be appropriate. Terms of the
Bank Deposit Program are further described in the Bank Deposit Program Disclosure Statement, which has been provided to
you with your account opening materials.
The fund expense information below reflects the most recent information available to us as of February 26, 2014, and is
subject to change. Please refer to the funds’ current prospectuses, statements of additional information and annual reports for
more information.
