Making a statement on TSKB’s first quarter financial results, TSKB CEO Murat Bilgiç said, “With our solid contribution to environment, climate and social development for the last 30 years, we assume the responsibility of being a positively differentiated institution in our sector. The strong financial results we have announced in the first quarter of 2022 once again reaffirm our qualified contribution to the real economy.

“With two new international funding agreements in environmental and social themes, we will continue to support the development of our country in areas such as climate, environment and women’s employment”

In the first quarter of 2022, TSKB has signed two separate international funding agreements within the framework of its green and inclusive transformation-oriented activities. The green-themed loan of USD 220 million, signed under repayment guarantee with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) and the Ministry of Treasury and Finance of the Republic of Turkey, aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Turkey. The loan is the continuation of the USD 150 million loan TSKB received from JBIC in March 2015. With this fund, TSKB will support renewable energy and energy efficiency investments throughout Turkey and provide financing for advanced technology projects in this field.

The USD 100 million loan received by TSKB from IFC, a World Bank Group member, will be used to enhance women’s access to financing and employment opportunities in Turkey. With this financing package; businesses that have a certain number of female employees, have female managers in the board of directors or senior management, and have a valid gender equality certification will be granted loans.

Evaluating the funding agreements in environmental and social themes recently signed by the Bank, Bilgiç added: “TSKB is a bank with strong ties to global development finance institutions. This gives us the advantage of following the world closely and incorporating good practices early on, as well as a perception of quality of international standards. We closely witness the transformative effect of smart and solution-oriented financing models in all the projects we grant loans to. The investments, which are realized with the funds we receive from the distinguished institutions of the world, and which serve as models in the development of our country with works in areas such as climate, environment and women’s employment, make us just as proud as our business partners.”

“We will build up the momentum in our investment banking and advisory activities”

Pointing to TSKB’s high performance in investment banking and advisory services, Bilgiç said: “As TSKB, we are a bank that provides effective support to our customers also with our non-credit services. As Turkey’s first investment bank, we guide the strategic growth of our country’s companies, and offer them alternative opportunities through transactions such as public offerings, intermediation in bond issuance, and mergers and acquisitions. With our advisory services, we mobilize all our experience and knowledge so that our companies can be economically, environmentally and socially competitive in the reshaped world. Our strategic subsidiaries operating in capital markets, real estate and sustainability enable us to both expand and deepen the value we create for our customers. We will continue to provide multidimensional support to meet the needs of our customers by taking these services, which we are handling with great care, even further.”

In addition, the Bank supported its healthy and strong balance sheet structure with an additional Tier 1 capital loan agreement amounting to USD 200 million signed with its main shareholder İşbank.
