Up to the beginning of the 20th century stocks were primarily owned by wealthy private individuals. Now, 100 years later, institutional investors hold almost twice the amount. They have 112trn assets under management (AUMs) compared to the 72,3trn that were held by High-Net-Worth-Individuals in 2016. The ascent of institutional investors as one of the most powerful players on global financial markets today is a highly relevant yet under researched topic.
This conference will ask the question of when, how and why this massive structural shift happened? And which are the consequences for our societies? How can we set policy frameworks today in a way that ensures that these investors will be able to deliver adequate pension payments in the future?
