The Forbes Global 2000 list categorizes the world’s largest and most valuable firms and again acknowledged SM Investments, BDO Unibank, Top Frontier Investment Holdings, Ayala Corporation, and Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co.
Since LT Group was dropped from the rankings, just five Philippine businesses made it to the list this year, down from six in 2021.
The Forbes Global 2000 rates businesses based on four factors: sales, profits, assets, and market value in the last 12 months. The companies in the list are often considered the best in their fields.
Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway led the list this year, followed by China’s ICBC, with Saudi Arabian Oil Company, JP Morgan Chase, and China Construction Bank rounding out the top three. Amazon, Apple, Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of America, and Toyota Motor placed sixth and seventh, respectively.
