The graphical indicator is based on the ratio of purchases and sales of stock. The indicated value is the standardized 30 day moving average of this value used to smoothen out transaction spikes.


The research is based on analyzing all the director events we identify. A director event is defined as the aggregated director activity on a stock.

Altana Director Alignment Research Asia & Oceania

Daily Filings per Country

In Asia, directors’ dealings regulations depend substantially on the individual country. Generally, research suggests that the enforcement and insider trading laws in some Asian countries might be more lax than in the US (Shen, 2009). Such significant country differences merit detailed analyses.

The ADAS fund strategy is based on detailed country-level analysis, which leads to a sophisticated understanding of different categories of directors’ dealings. Hence, only a subset of all directors’ dealings are taken into account to inform profitable trades. This allows the fund strategy to outperform its benchmark over the long run while keeping the volatility at comparatively lower levels. Recent proprietary research for instance revealed that in Asia, director sentiment in terms of aggregated shares traded and transaction volumes can significantly predict future market returns.

All transaction data is collected from the most reliable sources including financial service regulators, accredited data providers, and the issuers themselves, and stored on Altana Wealth servers for analysis and trading purposes. The data is collected in real time on a continuous basis.
