Six Philippine companies and banking behemoths have made the Forbes Global 2000 list—— an international ranking of the world’s largest, most powerful, and most valuable corporations.
Forbes has ranked the world’s largest public companies since 2003. It is based on four equally weighted metrics: assets, market value, sales, and profits. Last year’s edition provided insight into the early economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.
On its 19th annual list released, six Philippine-based companies made it to the list: SM Investments at top 877 with $7.6 billion worth of sales, $471.6 million worth of profit, $25.5 billion worth of assets, and $24.3 billion market value.
BDO Unibank ranked 1,159th with $4.3 billion worth of sales, $569.5 million worth of profit, $70.3 billion worth of assets, and $9.5 billion market value.
Top Frontier Investment Holdings ranked 1,183rd with $15.8 billion worth of sales, $-44.5 million worth of profit, $41 billion worth of assets, and $935 million market value.
Ayala Corp at 1,801st on the list with $3.9 billion worth of sales, $345.6 million worth of profit, $29.3 billion worth of assets, and $9.8 billion market value.
LT Group ranked 1,831st with $1.9 billion worth of sales, $423.8 million worth of profit, $28.2 billion worth of assets, and $3 billion market value; and Metropolitan Bank & Trust at 1,929th place with $2.9 billion worth of sales, $278.8 million worth of profit, $51.2 billion worth of assets, and $4.2 billion market value.
Japan, the United Kingdom, and South Korea round out the top five with 215, 66, and 62 companies, respectively.
