Garanti’s contribution to the Turkish economy amounts to TL 319 billion in the first half of 2018
Türkiye Garanti Bankası A.Ş. announced its financial statements for the first half to June 30, 2018. On a consolidated financial basis, in the first six months of 2018, Garanti had assets of TL384.878 billion, while its contribution to the economy through cash and non-cash loans increased to TL319.244 billion. The Bank’s ROAE (Return on Average Equity) was 18.1 percent and ROAA (Return on Average Assets) 2.1 percent.
Commenting on the results, Garanti Bank CEO Fuat Erbil said: “In the first half of the year, we further strengthened our already solid balance sheet and our stakeholders’ trust in us. Leveraging our high capital adequacy ratio, our contribution to the economy increased to TL319 billion. We successfully rolled over our syndicated loan in the second quarter and reaffirmed our ability to create sustainable funding. We added a further innovative product in foreign funding in June in the form of Turkey’s first social bond for women entrepreneurs in conjunction with the IFC. In July, we extended Turkey’s first green loan and once again continued to lead the sector in the area of sustainable finance.”
As the only bank from Turkey among 26 leading banks around the world to establish global banking principles for sustainable development, Erbil said: “Supporting responsible and sustainable development is one of the strategic priorities of Garanti. We shape our products and services within this context and also manage our customers' environmental and social risks. We support women's participation in the workforce and we work to create an inclusive economy in which all individuals benefit equally from opportunities. With our focus on customer experience and digitization, we started a new era in banking and transformed more than 600 branches where our customers receive a whole range of services from a single point of contact in the fastest and easiest way”.
Erbil welcomed international recognition of Garanti’s success: “We ranked among the best of Central and Eastern Europe. We were named ‘Best Bank for Sustainable Finance’ by Euromoney and ‘Best Project Finance House’ and ‘Best Structured Finance House’ by EMEA Finance. In Institutional Investor’s Emerging EMEA survey covering 473 companies, we were named among the ‘Most Honored’ institutions while the bank’s executive team was the only one from Turkey that was recognized. I would like to thank all my colleagues and our stakeholders for their trust and support.”
