Here's an interesting statistic: According to Forbes Philippines, Forbes Park in Makati City remains the top choice as the place to live for CEOs, chairpersons, and vice chairpersons in the country—with 9.7% of our local executives living there.
Obviously, a lot in Forbes Park isn't cheap: monthly rents average between P250,000 and P800,000. So, you know, NBD.
CEOs also preferred to live in gated communities like Dasmariñas Village in Makati (with 9.4% executives), Ayala Alabang (8.8%), and Greenhills, San Juan (6.6%). Other villages that made it to the top ten list include Wack-Wack village, Green Meadows, Rockwell Center, Ayala Heights, Corinthian Gardens, and Bonifacio Global City.
According to the same study, CEOs preferred to live in Makati City, where most of the country's banks, financial institutions, and top companies are.
So how did Forbes get this info? The study was based on the addresses of 318 chairmen, vice chairmen, and presidents of over 200 listed companies.
But that study failed to ask if the executives were single. And what their cellphone numbers are so we can ask them out for Starbucks coffee (or Toby's Estate?) immediately.
