Abstract: Institutional investors are seen as key investors on the financial market, crucial market makers, supporting market liquidity and activity, as well as important pillars of pension systems and for maintaining financial stability. Institutional investors, mostly pension funds and insurance companies, were considered to have a positive effect on financial stability because of their long-term investment strategy and funding. The recent financial crisis and its impact on financial market stability revealed serious systemic risk and interconnections between movements on financial markets and institutional investors' investment behaviour. Their investment policy, outflows and fire sales on the financial market had a great impact on market stability and deepening of the financial crisis. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the impact of institutional investors on financial market stability in the aftermath of financial crisis. The research will point out lessons learned from the financial crisis and point at key international initiatives and necessary improvements in the field of regulation and conduct of business of institutional investors.
