📌Dmitry Rybolovlev, Russia's "Fertilizer King," owns a 3.3 percent stake in the bank. Rybolovlev purchased Trump's mega mansion in Palm Beach for $95M, which allowed Trump to more than double his $41 million investment in the property in four years.

📌The timing of the purchase was essentially a Trump rescue package Trump was suing Deutsche Bank, his one remaining creditor, to try to avoid repaying a $40 million real estate loan. He lost.

🔑Interesting: Josef Ackermann, chief executive of Deutsche Bank from 2002 to 2012, replaced Ross as co-chair of the bank.

🔑Like co-chair Goldman, Ackermann currently works for Viktor Vekselberg.
dallasnews.com/opinion/commen…
He joined the board of Vekselberg's Zurich-based holding company, Renova Management AG, in 2014 to manage Renova's international assets.

🔑Clearly, Vekselberg's interests are fully represented at the Bank of Cyprus.

DeutscheBank: After being blackballed by U.S. banks for failure to pay his loans, Trump turned to Deutsche Bank for liquidity. Deutsche Bank is estimated to have loaned Trump as much as $3 billion since the 1990s.

📌Trump's financial disclosures show that he has $364 million in loans from Deutsche Bank that will mature in 2024

🔑During Ackermann's tenure as chief executive, Deutsche Bank engaged in a wide range of financial misconduct including, according to the New Yorker, laundering $10 billion of Russian money through its offices in New York, CYPRUS and MOSCOW.
newyorker.com/magazine/2016/…
Through Nov 2017, the bank had paid over $670M in civil penalties to the U.S. and the U.K. related to its Russian trades.

Deutsche Bank's Moscow office was run by Andrey Kostin Jr. until 2011 when he died in an ATV crash in a forest in northern Russia.

🔑Kostin's father, Andrey Kostin Sr., is chief executive of VTB, the second largest state-controlled bank in Russia that is currently under U.S. sanctions.
dallasnews.com/opinion/commen…
🔑VTB was the source of $191 million that Yuri Milner, a Russian billionaire in Silicon Valley, used to fund a major stake in Twitter in 2011 through his investment fund, DST.
theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/…
🔑Milner also channeled $920 million into Facebook funded by the investment arm of Russia's state-controlled gas monopoly, Gazprom.
theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/…
The money was transferred from Gazprom to DST through an offshore company in the Isle of Man, Kanton Services. The investment by Gazprom funded $1 billion worth of Facebook shares.
theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/…
🔑There are several tax favored areas around the world, but none can rival the significant advantages provided by the Isle Of Man as an offshore money center.

🔑Gazprom's investment subsidiary is managed by Alisher Usmanov, an Uzbek-Russian billionaire with close ties to the Kremlin.

📌Yuri Milner also invested $850,000 of his personal funds into a real estate startup, Cadre, which Jared Kushner co-owns with his brother. Kushner failed to disclose his association with Cadre when he joined the Trump White House.
theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/…
Investment has flowed from overseas to Kushner’s company, Cadre, while he works as an international envoy for the US.

The money came through a vehicle run by Goldman Sachs in the Cayman Islands, a tax haven that guarantees corporate secrecy. #TaxHaven
