Legasto continued to work as a fund manager in AIDC and his superior, former Philippine Stock Exchange chairman Roberto Z. Lorayes, gave him the responsibility of opening up AIDC to outside companies.
"It really made a lot of difference to help run the show for him.I was tasked to open the company up to new clients because before that, AIDC
exclusively handled the insurance funds of the other members of the Ayala group.When I came in, they wanted to bring in other clients.That was my job," Legasto says.
Legasto lived up to his
promise and in seven years, he
distinguished himself by coming up with landmark deals.
