We'd be surprised if IntegraFin Holdings plc (LON:IHP) shareholders haven't noticed that the Group Counsel, David Johnson, recently sold UK£386k worth of stock at UK£3.96 per share. On the bright side, that sale was only 8.6% of their holding, so we doubt it's very meaningful, on its own.
IntegraFin Holdings Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the Chief Operating Officer, Judith Davidson, for UK£839k worth of shares, at about UK£4.02 per share. That means that an insider was selling shares at around the current price of UK£3.94. While insider selling is a negative, to us, it is more negative if the shares are sold at a lower price. Given that the sale took place at around current prices, it makes us a little cautious but is hardly a major concern.
Over the last year, we note insiders sold 568147 shares worth UK£2.2m. IntegraFin Holdings insiders didn't buy any shares over the last year.

Insider Ownership of IntegraFin Holdings
Another way to test the alignment between the leaders of a company and other shareholders is to look at how many shares they own. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. IntegraFin Holdings insiders own about UK£512m worth of shares (which is 39% of the company). I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
