Morgan Stanley (MS) and its board were accused of mismanaging the firm’s 401(k) retirement plan and costing 60,000 employees hundreds of millions of dollars by picking inappropriate and high-priced investments, some of which were managed for the firm’s own profit, according to a report from Bloomberg Friday. The lawsuit, filed Friday in Manhattan federal court, highlights a friction that exists at financial-services firms that put employees into their own product, the report pointed out.
