Insiders

Definition:

Traditionally referring to the directors, senior officers and holders of more than 10% of the voting shares of the company, insiders now include anyone who possesses or has access to material, non-public information (inside information), including tippees. This could include, for example, even a junior employee who makes photocopies for a board meeting, or someone who is ‘tipped’ by an insider..
