Are you curious to know who are among the top Philippine companies in 2009? The Wall Street Journal recently conducted a survey of top 200 companies in Asia.
Their project started in August 2008 when they compiled a lists of Asian companies traded on stock exchanges. A total of 2,622 executives and professionals participated in the survey.
Based on their research, here are some of their findings when it comes to the top companies here in the Philippines:
In OVERALL RANK, the country’s leading fast food chain Jollibee ranked first in position. Four (4) companies of the Ayalas also went into top 10 (Ayala Corp., Ayala Land, Bank of the Philippine Islands and Globe Telecom). The SM Group of companies headed by the country’s richest person Henry Sy have two (2) companies who joined the top 10 (Banco de Oro Universal Bank in 7th and SM Prime Holdings in 9th). San Miguel Corp., PLDT and Metrobank were also included bagging in the 4th, 8th and 10th positions.
When it comes to FINANCIAL REPUTATION, the top three largest Philippine banks namely Metrobank, Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), and Banco de Oro (BDO) grabbed the top three ranks. Three (3) companies owned by Henry Sy managed to join the top 10 (BDO, SM Investments Corp., and SM Prime Holdings). Likewise, three companies by the Ayalas managed to join financially stable companies (BPI, Ayala Land, Ayala Corp.) San Miguel, PLDT and Jollibee also managed to join the circle.
For the rest of the other categories, here are the results:
For CORPORATE REPUTATION, here are the top 10 Philippine companies:
For QUALITY category, here are the top 10 Philippine companies:
INNOVATION-WISE, here are the top 10 Philippine companies:

I guess from these list of top 10 Philippine companies in 2009, there is no doubt why Henry Sy and the Zobel de Ayala Family came into the first and second positions as the richest person in the Philippines.
Furthermore, with this list, we will now know which company should we invest in the stock market.
