Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders.

What Might The Insider Transactions At BRP Group Tell Us?

It's certainly positive to see the recent insider purchase. And the longer term insider transactions also give us confidence. However, we note that the company didn't make a profit over the last twelve months, which makes us cautious. Once you factor in the high insider ownership, it certainly seems like insiders are positive about BRP Group. That's what I like to see!
