Garanti BBVA CEO Recep Baştuğ says; “We are going through a challenging period with increasing uncertainties and risks in the global and local economy. In this environment, both the Turkish banking sector and Garanti BBVA continued to prove their resilience. The financial sector plays a critical role for the economy to grow on a healthy basis.”

“By supporting the Turkish economy above the sector, we increased our TL loans in the quarter to 309 billion TL with 17% growth. It was a quarter in which we gained market share from the sector in both TL and foreign currency loans. We are the leader in consumer loans among private banks*. We also have the highest market share in acquiring and issuing in the payments sector. We derive the power of our sustainable growth from our effective asset-liability management and solid capital structure. We have completed the first quarter of 2022 with a very strong financial performance and net customer growth exceeding half a million.” he said.

Recep Baştuğ continues as follows: “With our continuous and uninterrupted investments in technology, we strive to offer a full-range, integrated banking platform that includes easy, accessible and personalized banking transactions and services across all channels. In this context, we aim to listen to the needs of our customers and respond to them as soon as possible. Artificial intelligence and machine learning, which can be integrated into all kinds of business processes, enable us to offer smarter, differentiated and personalized experiences for our customers.

The benefits we can provide to individuals and society as the financial sector are not limited to the financial needs and situations of our customers. I think that sustainability practices are one of the most important value creation mechanisms in the industry. With our motto "We take good care of the world, we take good care of the future" and our innovative financing models, we take a leading role in the green transformation of our country. We have clear goals and commitments in this regard. Since 2014, we have been financing only renewable projects in the energy sector within the scope of project finance. Last year we decided not to finance coal and by 2040 we will zero the coal risk in our portfolio. We became the only company from Turkey to be included in the Emerging Markets category (DJSI - Dow Jones Sustainability Index Emerging Markets) in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the 7th consecutive year. We integrate environmental, social and governance criteria into our business models and contribute significantly to sustainable development goals.

As Garanti BBVA, we value, not only the impact we have created in the economy but also the value we add to the environment, social life and technology, and we act with this awareness. I would like to thank all of our stakeholders, especially our customers who participated in this journey, supported and trusted us, along with my colleagues who made a great effort and contribution in this process.”
