Shares Bought By New Institutional InvestorsView Financial Glossary Index
The metric shares bought by new institutional investors refers to the number of shares bought by institutional investors who had not previously been invested in a particular company for the month. These institutions can be banks, funds, large holdings companies, etc.
For example, if Smith Holdings had not previously been invested in Apple, and they were the only new institutional investor to purchase shares of Apple in July, shares bought by new institutional investors would be equal to the number of shares Smith Holdings purchased in July. This metric is updated monthly.
