US based investment fund Dimensional Fund Advisor (DFA) – partly owned by former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger – has bought a 3% stake in Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa.
The purchase is revealed in a notification sent to Spain’s financial markets regulator the CNMV.
DFA becomes one of Gamesa’s largest shareholders alongside Spanish utility Iberdrola, which has 19.6%, and Blackrock Inc which holds 4.9%.
DFA’s 7.47 million Gamesa shares are worth about €23m ($30.3m) at current market prices.
