Wall Street beckons Owen Thomas who will relinquish his post as CEO of Asia for Morgan Stanley. The US investment bank has not yet announced a successor.

Owen Thomas, Morgan Stanley's chief executive for Asia, is relinquishing his post and moving back to the US. The bank is yet to announce a successor.
