These are your banks, insurance companies, pension funds, hedge funds, REITs (real estate investment trusts), investment advisors, endowments for many of the world’s biggest universities & colleges, and lastly mutual funds. In other words these are your “deep pockets”. Why does that matter? Well because when you or I invest our $500….$1,000….$1,500…..$2,000….$2,500….$5,000 or $10,000 in a stock or cryptocurrency, or on the other end sell that much of a stock or cryptocurrency that doesn’t increase or decrease the price of that stock or cryptocurrency. But you let Goldman Sachs or University of Michigan or Fidelity or Wells Fargo or Princeton University or Bank of America or All State Insurance or Stanford University or State Farm Insurance or University of Texas or JP Morgan Chase or Blackrock or Harvard University or Kimco Realty or Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway buy or sell $10 Million or $25 Million or $50 Million or $100 Million or $1 Billion or $10 Billion or $25 Billion or $150 Billion of a stock or cryptocurrency, well then that drives the price of that stock or cryptocurrency up from $10 each to $200 or $500 or $1,000 each, or down from $1,000 each to $500 or $200 or $10 each. There’s an old saying on Wall Street that “Institutional investors drive the market”…….it’s very true. Crypto has had a tough time attracting institutional investors for quite a while now, but all of that is beginning to change. This video which interviews several people who invest on behalf of some of the world’s biggest institutions explains why. Enjoy.
