(Bloomberg) -- Morgan Stanley is in talks with the U.S. to resolve an investigation into the bank’s creation and sale of mortgage-backed bonds, the latest in a string of Wall Street cases tied to the 2008 financial crisis, a person familiar with the matter said.

An agreement could be reached within the first few months of 2015, said the person, who asked not to be named because the negotiations are private. The amount of a possible settlement isn’t clear.
