Abstract [en]

This study examines the behavior of institutional investors in Sweden. Institutional investors consist of mutual funds, insurance companies, pension funds, closed-end investment companies and foundations. The aim of this study is to investigate how these institutional investors act based on Hirschman´s theory of exit and voice. The theory implies that an owner has two different options in response to decline in firms; to either sell the possession (exit), or hold the possession and try to affect a change (voice). Based on the results we intend to categorize the institutional owners. The study also cover the development of institutional governance policies and how the content of these documents have changed over time.
