This chapter explores the critical role of institutional investors as fiduciaries and in the governance of public companies. These institutions have more frequently encountered agency conflicts as the complexities of their businesses (managing pension funds, mutual funds, and 401ks of various types for both corporate and individual accounts) and competitive pressures have increased. They are powerful players in exercising control rights. As an industry, they can make the difference between governance successes and failures.
