On www.dontbankonthebomb.com I saw that you invest in nuclear weapons producers. I was shocked to read this, and I object to this, because you also invest my money and I don’t want to be associated in any way with the production of these weapons of mass destruction.

I have also learned that you can choose not to invest in nuclear weapon producers, and that more and more financial institutions already exclude any such company.

So take their good example, and divest!

Hall of Shame Methodology

Which financial institutions are involved in the financing of the selected nuclear weapon companies was researched using annual reports, stock exchange filings and other publications of the companies concerned, archives of trade magazines, local newspapers and the financial press as well as specialized financial databases (Thomson ONE, Bloomberg). Used resources are clearly mentioned.

Financial institutions can be involved in financing companies by providing corporate loans, by assisting companies with share- and bond issues, and by (managing) investments in shares and bonds of these companies. For asset managers and pension funds, the only relevant type of financial involvement is (managing) share- and bondholdings of the selected companies.

In this report, we have focussed on the financial institutions which are found to have most significant financing relationships with one or more of the selected nuclear weapon companies. To select these financial institutions, the following criteria are used:

  • All financial institutions involved in loans and underwriting deals for one or more of the companies since 1 January 2011;
  • All financial institutions which own at least 0.5% of the outstanding shares or bonds of at least one of the companies.

What is included

Each section provides the following information for each financial institution:

The types of financial relations which the financial institution has with one or more nuclear weapon companies. The relations are grouped by loans, investment banking and asset management. Financial activities are listed alphabetically by nuclear weapons company for each category.

The name of the receiving company, the amount, the date and (if known) the purpose for each financial relation.

All data is presented in tables. For loans, the first column represents the names of the selected companies that received the loans, the second column shows which subsidiary or part of the selected company has issued the loan. The third column is the purpose of the loan. The fourth column (# FI’s), shows the number of financial institutes participating in loans as loans are often offered by a syndicate of financial institutions. The fifth column represents the value of the total loan offered by the syndicate to the company. The sixth column is the amount for which this specific financial institute participated in the loan. This amount is calculated depending on the role the financial institute plays in the syndicate, as explained below. The last column shows the date the loan was issued.

The tables for underwriting of share and bond issuances have the same columns. The method for calculating these the value per financial institute can be below.

The tables for share and bondholdings managed by the financial institutions show the nuclear weapon producing companies, the country in which this company is situated, the percentage of all bonds or shares outstanding hold or managed by the specific institution, and the total value of the shares or bonds held by the financial institution in the indicated company.

When comparing this report with last years report please keep in mind that we have excluded some Indian sources due to recently identified errors in the Bloomberg databases regarding Indian Mutual Funds.

The financial institutions identified include banks, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and asset managers from many different countries. They have provided various types of financial services to nuclear weapon companies.
