They include commercial banks, Non-Banking Financial Institutions (NBFIs), insurance companies, merchant banks and broker houses, state-owned companies, asset-management companies, mutual funds and other manufacturing companies. Institutional investors are a major force in many capital markets. In case of Bangladesh, the capital market has been going through an image crisis after 2010 capital market crash.
