(FLI) is one of the leading real estate developers in the Philippines. It is a subsidiary of Filinvest
Development Corporation (FDC), which has more than 40 years of experience in real estate development. Founded by Mr. Andrew L. Gotianun, Sr., FDC is the holding company of the Gotianun Family. Originally engaged in the small-scale financing of second hand cars in 1955, the Gotianun Family’s business later expanded into consumer finance in partnerships with foreign institutions such as Chase Manhattan Bank, Westinghouse Electric Corporation and Ford Philippines. By the early 1980’s, the Gotianun Family’s Filinvest
Credit Corporation had become one of the leading consumer finance companies in the Philippines in terms of assets, and the “Filinvest
” name had become well-recognized in the Philippines. The Gotianun Family entered the real estate business in 1967 through the incorporation of Filinvest
Realty Corporation, which engaged in the development of residential subdivisions. In 1984, the Gotianun Family consolidated their real estate interests in FDC after divesting their shares in two family-owned banks, Family Bank and Trust Company and the Insular Bank of Asia and America. By 1990, FDC expanded its product line to include the development and sale of low-cost and medium-cost housing units.
Filinvest Land, Inc. was incorporated on November 24, 1989 as Citation Homes, Inc. and changed its name to Filinvest Land, Inc. on July 12, 1993. It began commercial operations in August 1993 after FDC spun off its
real estate operations and transferred all related assets and liabilities to Filinvest Land, Inc. in exchange for shares in Filinvest Land, Inc. . Filinvest Land, Inc. was listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) on October 25, 1993. FDC remains Filinvest Land, Inc.’s largest shareholder, beneficially owning approximately 51% of Filinvest Land, Inc.’s outstanding common shares and all of its outstanding preferred shares.Leader in Affordable Housing Segment
