Throughout 2023, Türkiye’s economic landscape and stock market continued to be highly dynamic. 2023, a year diverged as before and after the May elections, was marked by the implementation of two different economic policies. In the first half of the year, which was defined by the general elections in May, foreigners remained more cautious in entering the market while  local retail investors were increasingly getting in the stock market to hedge themselves against the high inflation. Post elections, the new economic team’s steps towards policy normalization and simplification was well-received by the investment community as well as rating agencies. In-line with this, Fitch Ratings, Moody’s and S&P all upgraded Türkiye’s sovereign rating outlook. As a result, foreign ownership in BIST increased for the first time in August during the year and the pace especially picked up in October. Foreign ownership in BIST finished the year at 30%**, up from its lowest point of 25% in June 2023.

This helped to contain the foreign investors’ net  outflow from the Turkish stock market to USD 0.7 billion in 2023 and marks the lowest cumulative net foreign outflow the Turkish market has seen over the last three years. The majority of the net foreign outflow was driven by non-banking stocks and XBANK outperformed XU100 by 28% in 2023.

More in depth look into GARAN, there was a net foreign inflow of USD 54 million during the year and foreigners’ share in the stock increased to 47% from 42% at end of 2022. Consequently, GARAN emerged as the best performer amongst the banking stocks. The stock yielded 109% in TL terms and 33% in USD terms, outperforming XBANK by 21%.  Garanti BBVA concluded 2023 as the most valuable banking stock and with the fifth-largest MCAP in BIST-100. Taking into account the increase in share price and dividends paid in 2023, the per-share value growth for our shareholders in the year reached 116%.
