From the Paper:

"These compliances are monitored closely by both individual and institutional investors. Individual investors are those who buy relatively small quantities of shares so as to earn a return on idle funds, build a source of retirement income or provide financial security. Institutional investors are investment professionals that are paid to manage other people's money. They hold and trade large quantities of securities for individuals, businesses and governments. These may include banks, insurance companies and pension funds."
