    Many institutions measure their performance against an index that approximates the local market. So they usually pay more attention to companies that are included in major indices.

    Insider Ownership Of Linius Technologies

    While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders.The company management answer to the board; and the latter should represent the interests of shareholders. Notably, sometimes top-level managers are on the board, themselves.

    Most consider insider ownership a positive because it can indicate the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, on some occasions too much power is concentrated within this group.

    It seems insiders own a significant proportion of Linius Technologies Limited.Insiders own AU$11m worth of shares in the AU$45m company.I would say this shows alignment with shareholders, but it is worth noting that the company is still quite small; some insiders may have founded the business.

    The general public, mostly retail investors, hold a substantial 50% stake in LNU, suggesting it is a fairly popular stock.This level of ownership gives retail investors the power to sway key policy decisions such as board composition, executive compensation, and the dividend payout ratio.

    Private Company Ownership

    Our data indicates that Private Companies hold 15%, of the company’s shares.It’s hard to draw any conclusions from this fact alone, so its worth looking into who owns those private companies. Sometimes insiders or other related parties have an interest in shares in a public company through a separate private company.
