Company background

GT Capital Holdings is the holding company of tycoon George S.K. Ty. The Filipino-Chinese businessman started building his empire in his 20s when he opened Metropolitan Bank & Trust in 1962. The conglomerate went public in 2012, and its initial public offering raised nearly 22 billion pesos ($520 million), making it the biggest equity transaction in the Philippines that year.

As well as its crown jewel, Metrobank, the group is also into property development through Federal Land; power generation (Global Business Power); automotive (Toyota Motor Philippines); life insurance (Philippine AXA Life Insurance); and nonlife insurance (Charter Ping An Insurance).

Recently, GT Capital, ran by Ty's son Alfred, has focused on power generation amid a looming power shortage in the Philippines. At the same time, the company had been beefing up its property development as demand grows in the residential and office sectors.
