A look at the shareholders of Nalwa Sons Investments Limited (NSE:NSIL) can tell us which group is the most powerful. Generally speaking, as a company grows, institutions increase their ownership. Conversely, insiders often decrease their ownership over time. I like to see at least a little insider ownership. As Charlie Munger said “Show me the incentive and I’ll show you the result”.
Nalwa Sons Investments is a small company with a market capitalization of ₹9.1 billion, so it may still fly under the radar of many institutional investors. Looking at our ownership group data (below), it appears that institutions own shares in the company. Let’s dig deeper into each type of owner to learn more about Nalwa Sons Investments.

What does institutional ownership tell us about Nalwa Sons’ investments?
Institutions typically measure themselves against a benchmark when reporting to their own investors, so they often become more enthusiastic about a stock once it is included in a major index. We would expect most companies to have some institutions listed, especially if they are growing.
We can see that Nalwa Sons Investments has institutional investors; and they own a good part of the shares of the company. This implies that analysts working for these institutions have reviewed the stock and like it. But like everyone else, they can be wrong. When multiple institutions hold a stock, there is always a risk that they are in a “crowded trade”. When such a transaction goes wrong, multiple parties may compete to quickly sell shares. This risk is higher in a company with no history of growth. You can see Nalwa Sons Investments’ historical earnings and revenue below, but keep in mind there’s always more to tell.

Institutional ownership research is a good way to assess and filter the expected performance of a stock. The same can be obtained by studying the feelings of the analyst. Our information suggests there is no analyst coverage of the stock, so it is likely little known.
Insider Ownership of Nalwa Sons Investments
The definition of company insiders can be subjective and varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Our data reflects individual insiders, capturing at least board members. The management of the company runs the company, but the CEO will answer to the board of directors, even if he is a member of it.
Insider ownership is positive when it signals that executives think like the true owners of the company. However, strong insider ownership can also give immense power to a small group within the company. This can be negative in certain circumstances.
Our information suggests that insiders hold a significant stake in Nalwa Sons Investments Limited. Insiders have a ₹1.0 billion stake in this ₹9.1 billion venture. It’s great to see insiders so invested in the company. It might be worth checking to see if these insiders have bought recently.
General public property
The general public, including retail investors, owns 14% of the company’s capital and therefore cannot be easily ignored. While this size of ownership may not be enough to sway a policy decision in their favor, they can still have a collective impact on company policies.
Private Company Ownership
We can see that private companies hold 52% of the issued shares. It’s hard to draw conclusions from this fact alone, so it’s worth investigating who owns these private companies. Sometimes insiders or other related parties have an interest in shares of a public company through a separate private company.
It is always useful to think about the different groups that own shares in a company. But to better understand Nalwa Sons Investments, we need to consider many other factors.
