Top 10 Richest People In The Philippines 2018
Forbes list of the top 10 richest people in the Philippines for 2018 is finally out! While most of the names have remained the same since 2017, there are a few new ones who made it into this ultra-exclusive list this year.
The rise of the US dollar may have budged the net worth of these billionaires down, but they still managed to come out on top. A handful of new individuals even soared higher, three maintained their previous spot, and the rest exchanged spots for better or worse.
One thing’s for sure though, it’s been a tough year for these billionaires. Despite that, the economic challenges didn’t really make them less of a billionaire. It could be because of their diverse investment and business portfolio, both onshore and offshore, or it could be Philippine’s growing economy giving their empire here at home a boost.
Either way, amassing all those riches surely entails a Wolf-of-Wall-Street-like financial know-how that most Filipino mortals could only dream of.
