10. Lucio and Susan Co
The partner who made fortune out of retailing business is none other than the wife-husband tandem of Lucio and Susan Co. The hypermarket they once established in 1998 has now grew to 300 branches under the name of Puregold Price Club Stores. These number has made them the second-biggest food retailer in the country. Aside from retailing business, the partners are also into gaming, hotels and wine distribution. Today they hold a net worth which is equal to $1.86B.
9. David Consunji
David Consunji, a self-made man is the 9th richest person in the country today. Having a net worth equal to $3.2B, David surely has made it big in the construction industry. He founded the DMCI, a corporation named after him in 1954. It was originally just a construction company but it later diversified into power generation, real estate and infrastructure company. Today, he is also into the mining industry; his shares on Semirara Mining as evidence of that.
