Business Description

APO was founded as Anglo Philippine Oil Corp., an oil and mineral exploration business, but later altered its main purpose to that of an investment holding corporation focusing on natural resources, property development, and infrastructure operations, and changed its corporate name to the current one. In addition, the corporation maintains smaller interests in a variety of pioneer initiatives.
