Most of the major Wall Street banks are still earning mediocre-to-poor grades for ethics management and transparency, according to a European-based research firm that based its survey on the information banks choose to make public. Worse, the research firm expects little improvement for the rest of 2003, assigning C grades to CSFB, Goldman, Merrill and Morgan Stanley for that period, and M &.E downgrades J.P. Morgan to a C+. Almost all the banks it rates move up to B status in the next three years, with the exception of Merrill.
