To get an idea of who actually controls Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Services Group (TADAWUL:4013), it is important to understand the ownership structure of the company. The group with the largest number of shares in the company, around 42% to be precise, are individual insiders. In other words, the group is likely to gain the most (or lose the most) from its investment in the business.
As a result, insiders were the main beneficiaries of last week’s 3.2% gain.
