    The objective of the study is to evaluate the investment activity of the pension funds in Bulgaria. The subject of the study is the pension funds as institutional investors functioning on capital cover principle. On this basis the study examines in details: 1) the concept “interaction frame” between corporate governance and institutional investors; 2) normative order of the investment activity of the pension funds in Bulgaria, including legally regulated quantity limitation for them; 3) analysis of the dynamics of the investment portfolio of the pension funds in the country; 4) the status of the institutional investors (particularly the pension funds), in order to outline their potential for participation in the corporate ownership. The currency of the problems is added by the fact that the traditional understanding of the shareholding ownership evolves due mostly to the gradual change of the status of the investors (mostly the institutional investors).
