Morgan Stanley has announced that new Access Investing accounts won’t be able to be opened after December 1, 2022.
Why It Matters
This is even more useful now that Morgan Stanley’s Platinum Card from American Express comes with a bigger welcome bonus. You can apply now, and if you spend $6,000 on purchases in the first 6 months, you’ll get 125,000 Membership Rewards points.
The annual fee for the Morgan Stanley Amex Platinum can be waived if you have a one of the Morgan Stanley investment accounts. The Access Investing account is the least expensive of these accounts. It needs at least $5,000 to get started. The fee for this account is 0.3% of your assets under management. You can also add a free Platinum authorized user to the card.

If you’ve never had a Morgan Stanley Platinum Card before, now is a good time to apply because you can get a big bonus and get the annual fee waived.
