The One Percent of the One Percent of Asia have been purchasing luxury homes in the Philippine islands and farms in mountainous countryside ranging from $500 million to $5 billion. With more than 100 million population in a 300,000-square-kilometer-country divided by 7,641 islands and with 99% of population living in busiest urban areas to survive, most parts of the Philippines remain unoccupied, making these secluded areas suitable for the richest yet smallest population with all resources ready in a snap of a finger.
Even before the COVID-19 breakout, business tycoons across Asia already started buying real estate properties and charter flight & travel ships in different parts of Southeast Asia, especially in the Philippines where almost all luxury lifestyle consultants and private wealth advisers to Asia’s HNWI and UHNWI are based.
As per the most secretive luxury concierge Luxe Societas, which is headquartered in Manila, about a thousand HNWIs and UHNWIs in their Asia and Europe network are going to the Philippines for summer after their winter season escapades and vacations in Europe’s Spain and France. About five thousand Asian HNWIs and UHNWIs are scattered across Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Brunei, Laos, Myanmar, East Timor, and Cambodia—still supported by Manila’s Luxe Societas.
“Our billionaires across Asia are chartering private jets, helicopters, yachts, and chauffeured cars. They are served by our teams of assistants as well as by teams of executive protection while they are in the Philippines and even if they are traveling across Asia and Europe. Full presidential-level of security is provided to them and their family members,” said Maria Julia San Jose, a senior luxury concierge manager. “We use security technology to support our executive protection groups. Everything is coordinated, of course, with the local authorities for maximum protection and convenience,” she added.
In terms of food supply, fine wines & spirits and gourmet food & fine dining are provided to them by Alta Gift Basket, Manila’s luxurious and finest gift basket of gourmet chocolates & wines for all occasions delivered in style to high-net-worth individuals which is now providing not only chocolates and wines but also custom recipes by most expensive hotels’ popular chefs.
Luxury Lifestyle Consultants and Private Wealth Advisers are working side by side to provide ultra-premium services tailored to the requests by or necessities of Asia’s HNWIs and UHNWIs.
In the Philippines, Asia’s HNWIs and UHNWIs not only have been acquiring mega mansions in most expensive villages within the city and luxury countryside homes in suburbans in mountains and island resorts outside the city but also investing in development of farm lands as sources of luxury organic fruits and vegetables to supply them with organic food during global crises such as wars and pandemic.
