An executive at Morgan Stanley enjoyed a warm welcome from Clinton in July 2009 when he reached out to schedule a meeting with her.
Stephen Roach, chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, wrote to Clinton early that month and said he “[w]ould love the opportunity to meet with you briefly and give you up update on my thoughts/ insights into China and the rest of the region.”
“Delighted to hear from and about you,” Clinton replied. “I’m looking forward to seeing you when you’re in DC.”
Clinton said Roach’s “timing” was “impeccable” given that she was slated to host an economic dialogue with the Chinese in late July.
Because their meeting was apparently scheduled for two days after the Chinese event, Roach emailed Clinton a lengthy memo outlining his economic advice for dealing with the Chinese market.
Morgan Stanley has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
