Ten Richest People in the Philippines

Source: Forbes Magazine

The shopping mall magnate, Henry Sy, is the Philippine richest person for four straight years now

Compared to the richest people in the world in Forbes magazine's listing of billionaires, the Philippines' richest people are the poorest. There are several factors affecting their wealth, first is the slow economic growth in the Philippines because of a drop in trade and lower infrastructures spending, second is the small market capitalization.

But there's a surprising twist when Forbes magazine tracked the global wealth of these billionaires in the middle part of 2011. Due to the sudden boom of Philippine Stock Market, the fortunes of 34 Filipino tycoons increased dramatically. Henry Sy, stays in the number one spot for four straight years. There's a slight change in the 2011 listing of Philippine billionaires compared to the listing of Forbes magazine in 2010

Despite increasing his wealth by almost 50% from 2010, Tony Tan Caktiong, founder and CEO of Jollibee Food Corporation, is down from 7th in 2010 to number 11 in 2011, he is now worth $1.0 billion. Tan Caktiong's fast food empire includes Greenwich, Chowking, Red Ribbon and Mang Inasal.
