Abstract

Korea’s securities industry is going through a recession because of cutthroat competition for brokerage commissions. The market is saturated, but securities firms still depend on brokerage for their revenues. In this article, I discuss institutional investors, a sector that can help securities firms weather the current crisis. Institutional investors allocate individual investors’ capital primarily into equity, bond, and other alternative investments. Therefore, the growth of institutional investors is critical for capital markets development. The Korean securities industry will be influenced largely by the expansion of institutional investors in the mid to long term. Korea’s retirement pension market significantly grew with pension assets reaching KRW 54 trillion, and the market will grow further. (The rest omitted)
