Chapter 4 introduces the ways in which institutional investors produce investment returns over time and space. In doing so, the chapter considers the 1937 theory of the firm by Coase and reviews the theory’s relevance in today’s environment. It then outlines the three building blocks underpinning the ways in which financial institutions produce investment returns in the context of spatially extensive financial markets: ecology of finance, managers and workers, and coordination. The chapter also demonstrates the distinctive attributes of financial institutions, especially vis-à-vis the power and authority of senior managers in relation to the institution’s goals and objectives. The chapter explores other influential factors, such as the ways in which location, particularly in large urban centres with extensive financial networks, can make a difference.

Keywords:   Coase, ecology of finance, innovate, location, manager and workers, time and space
