An institutional investor is a business who allocates capital with the expectation of a future financial return (investment).

Types of institutional investors include:

  • Venture capital and private equity funds, which serve as investment collectives on behalf of individuals, companies, pension plans, insurance reserves, or other funds.
  • Businesses that make investments, either directly or via a captive fund
  • Investment trusts, including real estate investment trusts
  • Mutual funds, hedge funds, and other funds, ownership of which may or may not be publicly traded (these funds typically pool money raised from their owner-subscribers to invest in securities)
  • Sovereign wealth funds
