English translation:aggregate/place their shares (in a voting trust)
Explanation:
or
combine/pool their shares
There are several reasons why shareholders may wish to put a voting trust arrangement in place.
 Several shareholders may wish to create a unified block of votes, which together gives them more power than the collective sum of their fragmented interests.
 In many countries, in order to call general meetings, shareholders need to hold a certain percentage of the issued shares of the company. By aggregating their shares, the shareholders can confer this power on themselves collectively where they might not have it individually.
 Locking shares up in voting trusts can in some countries help deter a hostile takeover.
 Voting trusts are also sometimes used to resolve conflicts of interest. By putting the shares in a trustee who can vote them at arm's-length from the beneficiary(ies) of the trust, this can in some circumstances mitigate or absolve the original shareholder from what might otherwise constitute a conflict of interest (although in practice, to resolve conflicts of interest the trust will ordinarily be "blind trust"; while all blind trusts are necessarily voting trusts, not all voting trusts are blind trusts).
 Shares are sometimes aggregated into a voting trust to facilitate a corporate reorganisation.
 Promoters of companies sometimes aggregate their shares in a voting trust to safeguard control of the company.

Lo que se denomina sindicación de acciones es un compromiso que se realiza entre aquellos socios y/o accionistas de una entidad mercantil (S.A., S.L., S.A.D, etc) que tienen fines e intereses comunes, de manera que se comprometen a comparecer en los actos sociales, votar en las juntas de accionistas, promover acciones, etc todo ello de forma conjunta, con una sola voz y un solo voto.

There are a few different reasons someone would want to utilize a voting trust. One of the most common is so that shareholders can combine their voting power in order to influence a company's decisions. Several investors might decide that they want to take over a company and will combine their shares into a single voting entity to accomplish this.
