There's rich, then there's super-rich. In the Philippines, only a small group of people can say they've amassed such great wealth. The one percent, if you will. How small is it? We're talking about a single common ancestor to the single richest family in Asia type of small.

But, it gets even smaller when you realize that a lot of those who belong in the top one percent are related. We're not talking about the richest families, we're talking richest brothers and sisters who dominate Forbes' richest list. Here, we've put together the richest siblings in the Philippines.

The Zobel clan's Inigo and Mercedes have long been a part of the Forbes rich list. The brother and sister were the only siblings on the list up until 2019. In 2020, however, the two dropped off the list of the 50 richest Filipinos. That's not to say the siblings had a major drop: Inigo Zobel's net worth was still at $990 million as of September 2020, while Mercedes was no longer on the list.

The siblings are the children of Enrique Zobel de Ayala, whose forebears were known for developing Makati's swamplands into a financial and commercial district. Today, the two have a stake in Ayala Corporation. Inigo Zobel also has Top Frontier Investment Holdings Inc. and San Miguel Corporation to thank for his fortune.
