Companies

Tan runs the Alliance Global Group Inc. (AGI). It is composed of four companies:

  • Megaworld Corporation – A real estate corporation engaged in developing condominiums. It has subsidiaries called Empire East and Suntrust Properties. It was dubbed by Finance Asia, a business tabloid, as the "best managed company" and the "best in corporate governance" in the Philippines for 2006.
  • Emperador Distillers, Inc. – Best known for its Emperador Brandy which became the world's best-selling brandy in 2006, and Emperador Light. What made it successful was how it was promoted. Instead of following other liquor advertisements that feature attractive women and other dainty images, the ads of Emperador Brandy emphasize successes in life and moral values.
