An insider insider insider with a deep knowledge of the industry is worth more than the average person, but not as much as the average investor, a new study says.
The study by McKinsey & Co. said that the average value of an insider’s position is $3.1 million, a figure that includes stock options, warrants and other compensation.
The value of insider positions also include a $2.4 million cash bonus, $2 million in stock options and other options, and $3 million in cash.
An insider is an individual who has a significant influence over the financial markets.
They often hold a position of power, or control a company or an organization, according to the study.
“The more people who have an insider knowledge, the more valuable the insider is,” said Dan Rosenblum, a partner at McKinsey.
“Insider knowledge is not necessarily a good thing, but it is a valuable asset.”
The McKinsey study looked at information from the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association.
It used data from SIFMA, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation, as well as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The report said the median insider position was $3,400 in 2013, up 2% from $3 in 2012.
The median compensation was $7,000, up 6% from the median compensation in 2012, and the average compensation for an insider position in 2014 was $14,800, up 13% from 2013.
