Commenting on the financial results, Garanti Bank’s CEO Fuat Erbil said: “In the first half of 2017, while further strengthening our solid balance sheet with the confidence of all our stakeholders, we helped revitalize the economy. We successfully renewed our  € 1.25 billion syndicated loan; and for the first time in international capital markets we issued Basel III Compliant Subordinated Notes in the amount of US$ 750 million and 10 year tenure. Receiving a record breaking demand of US$ 4 billion, our Basel III Compliant Tier II issuance became the lowest costing transaction of a bank in Turkey, while also generating the largest order book ever. With IFC, we signed an unprecedented agreement based on mortgages that would support 'Green Mortgage' projects, for the first time in Turkey. The loans we have extended under the Credit Guarantee Fund surpassed TL15 billion. Supporting social and economic development of women for over 10 years, the financing we provided to women exceeded TL3.2 billion."

Expressing the pride in contributing to the sustainable future of Turkey on behalf of Garanti Bank, Erbil said; “EMEA Finance named Garanti the Best Project Finance House in CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) region. We lead in the financing of projects contributing to the sustainability of the Turkish economy and offer innovative solutions. We work together and alongside our Retail, SME, Commercial and Corporate customers to find the best solutions for all their needs, and take part in their lives in an uninterrupted and long lasting manner. At every point of contact; physical locations across Turkey and leading on digital platforms; through all channels we bring our services to our customer’s location and work to create the best experience possible. I am grateful for all our stakeholders who trust and support us.”
