Morgan Stanley is one of nearly two dozen new financial institutions to adopt Apple Pay.

While many believed that Apple Pay would have to crawl before it could walk, nothing has been further from the truth. Apple Pay is now up and running with hundreds of banks, credit unions, and financial institutions around the nation that rushed into supporting the mobile payments platform.

Although Morgan Stanley is an investment, it still offers high net worth customers exclusive credit card opportunities, thus the addition of Apple Pay isn't entirely without logic. And by most accounts, Morgan Stanley is pretty excited about being in the Apple Pay fold.

And they're not alone. Morgan Stanley is joined this week in its adoption of Apple Pay by the following banks and credit unions:

  • Affinity Federal Credit Union
  • Cabela’s Club
  • Central Bank
  • Credit Union of Southern California
  • Farmers & Merchants Bank of Long Beach
  • First National Bank of Omaha
  • First Sentry Bank
  • FirstBank
  • Grow Financial Federal Credit Union
  • Ideal Credit Union
  • Redwood Credit Union
  • State Department Federal Credit Union
  • Teachers Credit Union
  • Technology Credit Union
  • The Northern Trust Company
  • The Independent BankersBank
  • United Federal Credit Union
  • Utah First Federal Credit Union
