This question does need some clarification, because most think of
trading companies in the sense that Japanese companies like C. Itoh
and Mitsui represent them:

In the Japanese sense, the trading companies are performing as banks
for part of the international exchange function, but also have other
important value-added, such as operating transport companies.

Best regards,

what are the 20 major trading companies owned by banks, and what banks are these
As an example in Austria, Raieffeisen Bank (RZB) owns the bulk tading
comapny F.J. Elsner. Elsner trades in boat loads of steel, wood,
newsprint and agricultural commodities around the world.

Consequently, what other banks own trading comapnies like F.J. Elsner?
There is no answer at this time.

Hi 7184-ga,

I expect that you know that the Raiffeisen Zentralbank in Austria and
the Raiffeneisen banks elsewhere in Europe are rather unique
organizations, originally cooperative institutions for farmers, both
as financial institutions and as suppliers to them and marketers of
their produce.

F. J. Elsner had/has its role within this concept, but I doubt that
other banks have an interest in a controlling interest in this type of
trading company, perhaps in China.
