January - September 2012


  • Garanti successfully completed the biggest Eurobond issue (USD 1,350m) with the lowest coupon by a Turkish bank. While European financial markets are going through an extraordinarily difficult period, international investors are looking to credit markets in emerging countries and have placed a great deal of confidence in the bank and the Turkish financial sector.
  • Garanti was one of the first Turkish companies to receive an Investors in People (IIP) certification, rising from “silver” in 2009 to “gold” status in 2012. This makes it one of the 615 companies with this status out of a sample of over 24,000. The award recognizes the values that it shares with BBVA: superior customer-centric management, a highly qualified team, and efficient management of the organization.
  • Garanti was named “Best Turkish Bank,” “Best Central European and Eastern European Bank” and “Best Turkish Trade Finance Bank” by Global Finance. It was also recognized as “Best Turkish Bank” by Euromoney and is the only bank in Turkey to receive awards in five different categories.
