Institutional investing is defined as investment by large organizations, such as corporations and governmental agencies. This type of investor typically retains institutional investment management companies and often chooses to purchase stocks and bonds.
Institutional investors include pension funds, mutual funds, endowments, insurance companies, and charitable foundations. These institutions don’t have a deadline for when they have to cash in their investments – unlike some other investors who might need to sell some or all of their investments before a certain date. That means that institutional investment services which are designed for investors with long-term time horizons, will be more suited for such institutional investors than for individual investors who might be forced to sell their assets at less-than-optimal times.
The unique needs of these organizations often require investment professionals who specialize in this area. For example, many institutional investors have specific rules about when they need access to their money and how their investments are to be managed. They may also have specific rules about when to sell an asset if it declines and about how much of their net worth can be in volatile markets.
These types of investors usually have long-term time horizons, and therefore can benefit from institutional investment management services such as those provided by Enriched Investing Incorporated.
In particular, this type of service is ideal for an institutional investor looking to diversify their portfolio, willing to hold onto specific investments for several years or longer, and having a risk tolerance permitting investment in equities or other securities with significant long-term growth potential.
Benefits for Institutional Investors
There are other benefits to institutional investors that simply cannot be overlooked. For one thing, institutional investment management companies, unbiased third parties who put their clients’ interests first, can provide a comprehensive range of investment options. to make sure the institutional investor’s investments are best suited to the clients’ financial objectives and constraints. The last and perhaps most critical benefit for an institutional investor to work with an institutional investment management firm is that such a firm typically will be much more comfortable speaking to the institution about things like tax implications and other such factors, which can help the institutional investor make better decisions when it comes to investing time, money and energy into a project.
