Insider Ownership Percentage

View Financial Glossary Index


Insider Ownership Percentage can be used by investors to measure the outlook senior management has on their company.

A higher percentage is typically viewed by an investor as a positive for the company, since management would in theory hold a higher percentage of shares if the company's outlook was bright.

An Insider is any person or entity of a company that either:

1. Any holder representing 5% or more of the total shares outstanding and/or

2. Any officer or board director of the company, including their related or affiliated individuals, families, entities and trusts.

These metrics are updated monthly.


Insider Ownership Percentage = Shares Owned by Insiders / Shares Outstanding
