The Relationship Between Institutional Investors Ownership and Brand Value: An Application

In order to meet these fund needs, companies started to focus on investors. One of the institutions that providing the flow of funds to the companies is institutional investors. Institutional investors (Pension Funds, Insurance Companies, Mutual Funds, Investment Trusts, Charitable Funds, Social Security Institutions, Portfolio Management Companies) are transferring the funds to capital market instruments they collect from individual investors. From this point of view, it can be said that institutional investors have great importance for companies.
