But who is shareholder of Bayer shares? It´s Blackrock with 7%(Blackrocks holds 3,92% of Monsanto...), Capital Research Global Investors is shareholder of Bayer and Monsanto with 2,90%, Sun Life Financial Inc. from Canada. Shareholders of Sun Life Financial Inc are: State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, Fidelity and Blackrock. Blackrock almost can decide alone about what happens with IG Farben... sorry again, Bayer
But that´s how it is if gangsters like Blackrock decide for your corporation.
