Working Link to Open Morgan Stanley Access Investing Account
Morgan Stanley announced a week ago that effective December 1, 2022, Access Investing® will no longer be offering the ability to open new accounts. Then a few days later, it was no longer possible to apply.
Now there’s a new link that’s working to apply and open a Morgan Stanley Access Investing account. Just click “Continue as guest” to start your application.
This is more useful now as there’s also an increased welcome bonus for the Platinum Card from American Express exclusively for Morgan Stanley. You can currently apply and and earn 125,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $6,000 on purchases in your first 6 months.
You can get the annual fee waived on the Morgan Stanley Amex Platinum with an eligible Morgan Stanley investment account, and the cheapest option is the Access Investing account. It requires a minimum investment of $5,000. The annual fee for that account is 0.3 percent of your assets under management, which would be $15 for $5,000. The card also lets you add a free Platinum authorized user.
So if you have never had the Morgan Stanley Platinum Card in the past, this is a good time to apply and get a big bonus, plus the opportunity to do so fee-free.
