A commenter on my previous Anglo post asked a question surrounding who the shareholders in Anglo were pre nationalisation in January 2009. I have explored this issue previously, but am returning to it now to examine in more detail.
I am going to take December 2008 as the measure, since Anglo was nationalised in January 2009 (but not the entire month had passed). But I may update with January names. Here are the 41 major shareholders as at December 2008, where percentages are given they are known, where they are not simple N/A applies, since the total shareholding is not known.
