Our Purpose Journey

Since it was established in 1946, SGV has held true to its core values and ideals. Generations of partners and staff have worked toward achieving our late Founder Washington SyCip’s vision for the Firm – to develop quality people and leaders who contribute to national development. And now, after reflecting on everything that defines SGV as a Firm, our leaders reiterate this vision in our Purpose.


“In everything we do, we nurture leaders and enable businesses for a better Philippines.”

SGV remains strong because the Firm and its people believe that in everything we do, we envision the greater good of the country. With our renewed purpose, SGV maintains its position as the market leader, strengthened by people who embody integrity and excellence, building relationships based on doing the right thing. As one Firm, SGV will work towards sustaining a prosperous economy in a country where people’s lives are uplifted – truly, a better Philippines. And in building a better Philippines, SGV contributes to building a better working world.
