Largest Shareholders In Listed Companies

Sun Nov 16, 2014 7:48 am

I was watching a TV interview on CNN with Saudi businessman, who own more than 5% of citi-bank & NewsCorp and other companies.
I know that Carlos Slim own a big chunk in Bank of America and others. Big Sovereign funds own hundreds of billions in USA stock markets.
When i checked the financial information of the companies i couldn't see their names listed there as the biggest owner.
How the identify them while they cover under different offshore license, how does the US collect tax from them, are they allowed to own more than 5% ? is it mandatory to keep the money in the USA and you only allowed to take the dividend ?

What you want to look for are Schedule 13D filings for the companies you're researching, if I understand your question correctly.

Quote:
13D filings allow the investing public to see who a public company's large shareholders are and, perhaps more importantly, why they have an interest in the company. These filings may be a precursor to hostile takeovers, company breakups, and other "change of control" events.

Thank you for this info, I never knew it before.
I was asking about the names behind the big shareholders, like Alwaleed bin Talal own 5% of Citi and it is not visible how and when. Same apply for The laregst sovereign fund ADIA who is involved in almost all Fortune 500 companies.

You're very welcome. If the info in the 13D filings don't answer your questions in their entirety, there are public information offices at both the SEC and FINRA (formerly the NASD), which could help guide you through the maze of drilling down to the information you desire (plus the terminology used—useful as a glossary), if the level of detail you're looking for is of a more sophisticated nature.
