Former Senate President Manny Villar is the richest man in the Philippines, according to Bloomberg.
Villar, who owns one of the biggest real estate companies in the country, has a net worth of about $6.72 billion (PhP232 billion).
He is married to Senator Cynthia Villar, chairman of the Committee on food and agriculture and Committee on agrarian reform and environment; father of Sec. Mark Villar of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH); and father-in-law of Justice Undersecretary Emmeline Villar.
Previously, Henry Sy was the Philippines’ richest man with $13.9 billion, but his children divided his wealth upon his death.
