Commenting on the financial results, Garanti Bank’s CEO Fuat Erbil said: “We made a solid start to 2017 with a remarkable core banking performance. While maintaining our leadership in consumer lending, we grew our TL business banking loans by 14% in the first three months of 2017. As of today, the loans we have provided under the Credit Guarantee Fund surpassed 10 billion liras. We continue to support the economy with our strong capital and diversified funding resources. The US$ 500 million 6 year tenure Eurobond we issued in March is an important indicator of confidence in Garanti and in Turkey during a turbulent period in the global financial markets. With over 19 thousand employees and the expansive branch network in every city of Turkey, we continue to be alongside our customers. As a pioneer in digital transformation for over 20 years, today we reached a point where we bring the banking service to our customer’s location. In addition to the capability of quick transaction processing without branch visits, we cater to our customers the privilege of private expert consultations on subjects requiring specialist knowledge. The digitalization journey we started with BonusFlas in payment systems, continues with Garantili Isler (Garanti for Merchants) web platform for SMEs. Furthermore, we commenced the period of financing for digitalization in agriculture.”
Expressing the pride for the recognitions of Garanti’s efforts by international authorities, Erbil said; “We were chosen ‘Best Investment Bank in Turkey’ by Global Finance for the financing we provided to projects. We qualified for the FTSE4GOOD Emerging Index with our performance in environmental, social and governance areas. We became the first and only company from Turkey to be listed in the Bloomberg Financial Services Gender Equality Index, with our HR practices and the support we provide to women for their increased role in business life and higher contribution to the economy. We continue to work relentlessly to add sustainable value to all our stakeholders.”
