Smart Insider

Founded in the early 1980s, our company operates as a specialist consulting firm focusing on turning insider transactions data from merely interesting into a source of investment insight.

Smart Insider’s path to becoming a global data vendor.
The history of our company began on two continents.

USA

1980s

Established by George Muzea in the early 1990s, who wrote extensively on the subject, ‘Muzea Insider Consulting Services’ [MICS] covered the US market and was the first specialist vendor in the field, concerned with identifying unusual activity most likely to indicate stock outperformance.

UK

2001

The focus shifted to data quality and normalisation without the overlay of stock analysis, which was previously MICS’ focus.

2001

Directors Deals was founded to cover the UK market and quickly expanded coverage as regulations changed throughout continental Europe.

2007

Having expanded to coverage to include all the established European markets, the company initiated coverage in Asian markets where data was readily available.

2010

Directors Deals established a production centre in Pakistan to process a greater quantity of data in more markets, and additional time zones.

2012

By this stage MICS had been acquired by William Lattimer who then expanded coverage of stock analysis to Europe.

2012

The two companies formed an alliance in 2012 with offices in London, the UK and Darien, USA

2016 – The merger

Smart Insider fully acquired both Directors Deals and Muzea Insider Consulting to form the most progressive insider trading data vendor in the field — owned by partners Michael Tindale and William Lattimer.

With a requirement to process further time zones, the firm established a production centre in Bogota, Colombia.
