Institutional Fund

An institutional fund is a managed fund that is targeted towards high value or institutional investors, and generally has lower fees (often laddered based on the amount), and high minimum investment requirements. Institutional funds are regulated differently, and generally face lower regulatory obligations than retail funds as it is assumed that institutional investors are generally more sophisticated. Institutional funds will be targeted at a range of investors, such as high net worth individuals, pension funds, insurance companies, charitable trusts, endowment funds, and other institutions with money to manage.

Synonyms:  Wholesale fund, Wholesale investments, Institutional investments, Private placement
