Morgan Stanley has announced a partnership with English professional golfer Justin Rose.
The major champion and Olympic gold medallist will serve as a brand ambassador for the financial services firm’s partnership with golf series the PGA Tour.
The 37-year-old will also work with the New York-headquartered company to support its sponsorship of the PGA Tour’s Players Championship tournament with its ‘Eagles for Impact’ programme, which sees the company donate US$5,000 for every eagle made to children’s health services in Florida.
The news comes after Rose, in his capacity as 2018 host of the European Tour’s British Masters tournament, confirmed Walton Heath as the venue for the event. The Surrey-based course staged the Ryder Cup in 1981.
“I can’t think of a better ambassador for the Morgan Stanley brand than Justin,” said Mandell Crawley, head of private wealth management at Morgan Stanley. “We share a commitment with Justin to giving back to our communities and to giving children a healthy start to life and are excited to have him on our team.”
“I am excited to add Morgan Stanley to the great group of companies that I partner with," added Justin Rose. "Morgan Stanley as a company embodies many of the traits that I pride myself on: focus, integrity and giving back. I am looking forward to having them on team Rose.”
Justin Rose has won 20 worldwide professional golfing events, including the US Open Championship in 2013. He was a 2016 Olympic Games gold medallist and recently won the 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions tournament and the 2017 Turkish Airlines Open in back-to-back weeks.
