SGV at 70: Bridging the nation

Throughout its history, SGV has established a total of 14 offices across the Philippines. In addition to the Manila office, branches opened in booming cities throughout the country — namely Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, Iloilo City, Iligan, Cagayan de Oro, Bataan, Zamboanga, Baguio and General Santos — to serve clients outside Manila and leverage on local accounting expertise. Offices were also established to cater to the distinct needs of specific client groups. The Caloocan office served the predominantly Chinese business community in the area, the Subic office assisted investors in the Special Economic and Freeport Zone, and the Cavite office opened its doors to clients in the export processing zone and industrial estates of the province.

The Firm eventually consolidated its branch network into eight offices, serving key growth sectors in Bacolod, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cavite, Cebu, Davao, General Santos and Makati.
