statutory investment(redirected from Statutory Investments)
Investments allowed for institutional investors under the legal and regulatory rules of the country in which they are made. Institutional investors, notably banks, handle funds on behalf of clients, who may or may not be interested in investing themselves. As a result, many institutional investors are restricted from making certain high-risk investments. In the case of bonds, statutory investments are called investment-grade. One may also refer to statutory investments as legal investments.
