Institutional fund

A mutual 

Fund

 that targets 

Pension

 funds, endowments, and other 

High

 net worth entities and individuals. Institutional funds usually have lower 

Operating costs

 and higher minimum investments than retail funds. Often their main 

Objective

 is to reduce 

Risk

, so they invest in hundreds of different securities, which makes them among the most diversified funds available. They also do not tend to 

Trade

 securities very often, so they are able to keep 

Operating costs

 to a minimum. Although in the past investors typically needed at least $1 million in 

Order

 to invest in an institutional fund, nowadays some discount brokers 

Offer

 access to these funds for smaller amounts.
