In October 2010, 16 years after the launch of their U.S. service, SmartInsider began analyzing legal “insider” activity in European companies leveraging the analyst team’s 80+ years of experience in U.S. markets. The analysis of European corporate insiders has always been complicated by regulatory differences between countries and the tendency for European insiders to transact in smaller more frequent trades. Further complicating the analysis is the more frequent use by European insiders to transact in their own company’s stock via warrants and options.

Despite these challenges, SmartInsider has successfully implemented their system and now produces rankings of all European corporate insiders based on their predictive ability to buy and sell their company’s stock. As with the U.S. service, company specific buy and sell rankings are continuously generated and updated based on these transactions and are relayed daily via email reports and a comprehensive website.
