Program on Institutional Investors

Harvard Institutional Investor Forum

The Harvard Law School Institutional Investor Forum (HIIF), operated by the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance and the Harvard Law School Program on Institutional Investors, aims at contributing to discourse, policy making and education with respect to institutional investors and issues of interest to them. The Forum is directed by Professor Lucian Bebchuk with the participation of faculty from Harvard Law School, Harvard Business School and the Harvard Economics Department. Senior Fellow Stephen Davis serves as Associate Director.

The Forum is supported by a broad group of members: public pension funds, mutual funds and other investing institutions in the US and other jurisdictions. The aggregate assets managed by members of the Forum exceeds $15 trillion. An advisory council consisting of leading governance officers from the institutional investor community provides the Forum with input on events and topics that could add value to the community of investors.
