Morgan Stanley Investment Management tapped Robert Shapiro, formerly of Abel Noser, to work on trading and execution analysis and MSIM's global trading infrastructure.

As part of a strategy to revamp its global trading platform, in January Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM) hired Robert Shapiro as executive director of trading and execution analysis. Shapiro reports directly to Ray Tierney, global head of equity trading.
