Empowering Investment Decision-Making with Insider Transactions

In a world of exponential data creation it’s easy to get lost in the noise. Finding clear, persistent signals indicative of future performance is paramount: understanding who the key players are and which transactions are relevant can mean the difference between portfolio performance or loss. Fundamental investing requires precision and in-depth understanding of a company’s inner workings and growth potential. Those with the deepest knowledge are often within the company: directors, managers and board members.

These individuals are closest to the action and their trading can signal trends which other analysis may not catch – but you have to know what to look for, as well as where and when. Both industry and academic research show unequivocally that the actions of company insiders provide consistent predictive power across all market conditions. The evidence is clear: if insider transactions data is not already a part of your investment process, it should be.
