Essays on Institutional Investors, Portfolio Choice, and Asset Prices

This dissertation is a collection of five independent chapters that aim to better understand the investment decisions of institutional investors. Summarizing, this dissertation has three main findings. First, regulation drives a large part of the investment decisions of institutional investors. Second, their investment decisions matter for asset prices. And third, their investment decisions have important welfare implications for the investors where we ultimately care about, namely, the households.
