Morgan Stanley saw its income and revenue decrease in the first quarter, according to a financial results statement released Wednesday.
The US-based multinational investment bank and financial services holding company posted net earnings applicable to main shareholders of $2.98 billion in the January-March period, which was down 18.8% from $3.67 billion in the same period last year.
Total revenue decreased 2% to $14.5 billion, from $14.8 billion, according to the figures.

The bank's stock price was down almost 2.5% to $87.64 at 9.34 a.m. EDT from its previous close of $89.85.
