MANILA – Based on the senators’ statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth (SALN) in 2014, Cynthia Villar again topped the list as the richest senator with more than P1-billion assets and zero liabilities.

With all assets and no liabilities, Villar’s net worth amounted to P1,983,480,135. She had consistently emerged as the wealthiest senator since taking office in 2013.

Included in her assets were residential properties, investments in stocks and other personal properties.

Villar was followed by Ralph Recto with P600-million assets. But with P78-million liabilities, he registered a net worth of P500 million.

Recto was then followed Ferdinand Marcos Jr. with more than P200-million assets. And with some P20-million liabilities, he totaled an almost exact P200-million net worth.
