The Charlotte Observer has a heartwarming story today about Carolinas wide receiver and Morgan Stanley client Steve Smith finding a concurrent career as a financial planning intern at the global investment firm. A few years ago he started reading some books about investing and then on a whim asked his financial adviser if he could get some hands-on experience in the off-season. Though rather unorthodox--the only similar example that comes to mind is Bear Stearns' internship program for individuals currently serving time--the request was granted. "So far it's been unbelievable," Smith says.
We expect to hear that, inspired by Smith's ancillary career pursuit, Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack has decided to scale back on his duties at the bank this summer to pursue his dream of making the Panthers' roster as a walk-on defensive tackle this August within the week.
