Regarding this, what percent of investors are retail?

Today, retail investors own less than 30% and represent a very small percentage of U.S. trading volume. Data on the overall level of retail trading in U.S. equity markets are not available.

Consequently, who is considered a retail investor? A retail investor is an individual or non-professional investor who buys and sells securities through brokerage firms or savings accounts like 401(k)s. Institutional investors do not use their own money, but rather invest other people’s money on their behalf.

In this regard, how many new retail investors are there?

JMP estimates that more than 7.8 million new retail clients entered the market in January and February. Schwab found that these new investors are not just young people. They are also an older cohort discovering investing for the first time.
