Filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission show Slim has transferred some of these stakes to his six children: sons Carlos, Patrick and Marco Antonio Slim Domit, and daughters Soumaya, Vanessa and Johanna. The shares are held directly or through Mexico City-based holding company Inversora Carso and its subsidiaries. All assets are credited to Slim because he is the patriarch of the family fortune.
