UBS held talks with M Stanley on broker


People close to the situation said the discussions over UBS Financial Services – acquired in 2000 in the $11.8bn purchase of PaineWebber, the US brokerage and investment bank – were preliminary and were unlikely to be rekindled.

News of the talks with Morgan Stanley will raise further questions over the strategy of UBS, which has been buffeted by credit-related losses and a US government investigation into its offshore banking activities for American clients.

The collapse of Lehman Brothers and the conversion of Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs into bank holding companies so they could receive US government aid have called into question the viability of stand-alone investment banks.
