Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the Global Indemnity Group, LLC (NYSE:GBLI) Lead Independent Director, Seth Gersch, recently bought US$94k worth of stock, for US$23.40 per share. Although the purchase is not a big one, increasing their shareholding by only 2.1%, it can be interpreted as a good sign.

Global Indemnity Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by CEO & Director Joseph Brown for US$267k worth of shares, at about US$26.69 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than US$24.79 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important. As a general rule, we feel more positive about a stock if insiders have bought shares at above current prices, because that suggests they viewed the stock as good value, even at a higher price.

Insider Ownership

Many investors like to check how much of a company is owned by insiders. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. It appears that Global Indemnity Group insiders own 4.1% of the company, worth about US$15m. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it's enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders.
