Our Unique Business Model


Strong Partnerships with Best-of-Class Global Brands

A key element in GT Capital’s business model is the establishment of long-term, strategic partnerships with best of class global brands. As these leading entities lend their expertise and technology to each venture, GT Capital provides valuable, in-depth local knowledge and access to capital, among others. This mutually beneficial alliance enables the venture to be competitive if not dominant. Examples of this are Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation, the number one auto company and AXA Philippines, the country’s pioneering bancassurance venture.

"The three principles in our partnerships: respect, transparency, and fairness. With these three principles, you can't go wrong in business."

The conglomerate enhances the business relationship through the following:  

  • Well-established reputation and credibility of the Ty family in integrity, sound business practices, and corporate governance
  • Large geographic footprint in key segments of the Philippine economy
  • Established track record in growing businesses
  • In-depth knowledge of local business environment
  • Synergistic cross-selling platform

GT Capital combines local talent and expertise with the technology and resources of its leading global business partners. Global partners of GT Capital companies include:

Synergies Across Component Companies

GT Capital has one of the most well-defined synergy stories among Philippine conglomerates. Our component companies benefit from vast cross-selling opportunities within the group. AXA Philippines, to illustrate, uses the branch network of Metrobank to market its bancassurance products. Similarly, Toyota vehicle sales are often financed by car loans from Metrobank, its subsidiary PSBank, and Toyota Financial Services Philippines.
