Company background

Founded in 1834, Ayala Corp. is the Philippines' oldest conglomerate, controlled by the Zobel Filipino-Spanish family. Currently, the company is led by brothers Jaime Augusto Zobel, who serves as the company's chairman and CEO, and Fernando Zobel, who sits as the president and chief operating officer.

Its core businesses are real estate development (Ayala Land), financial services (Bank of the Philippine Islands), telecommunications (Globe Telecom, a joint venture with Singapore Telecommunications), and water distribution (Manila Water). The company, however, also has interests in electronics manufacturing and business process outsourcing.

Ayala, backed by Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi Corp., is slowly expanding into the infrastructure and power sectors. Through AC Energy Holdings, Ayala aims to build power generating capacity of 1,000 megawatts by 2016, while it intends to build expressways and railways via AC Infrastructure Holdings. Together with Metro Pacific Investments, the company recently won a $1.5 billion contract to expand and run a major overhead railway in Manila. The company has also announced a foray into education.
