The definition of an insider can differ slightly between different countries, but members of the board of directors always count. Management ultimately answers to the board. However, it is not uncommon for managers to be executive board members, especially if they are a founder or the CEO.

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.

Our information suggests that TS Innovation Acquisitions Corp. insiders own under 1% of the company. It has a market capitalization of just US$400m, and the board has only US$1.3m worth of shares in their own names. I generally like to see a board more invested. However it might be worth checking if those insiders have been buying.
