Istanbul, one of the oldest cities of the world, a center of history, culture, arts and science, has grown to become a metropolis that is home to millions of young, dynamic and enterprising people. Now the city aims for another title: İstanbul International Financial Center.
By her geopolitical location, young population and workforce size, rapidly growing economy, industrial strengths and impressive performance under pressure as proven during the current global crisis, Turkey will soon be one of the prominent financial centers. İstanbul will be gaining recognition as the intrinsic financial center of Turkey.
IFC Turkey is a news website founded to this end in March 2014 with the collaboration between The Istanbul Financial Center Initiative and Borsa İstanbul.
The site focuses on opinion columns, editorial news pieces, videos and webcast, featuring content from both institutions and their stakeholders. Alongside sharing knowledge and experience from the business partners of Turkey, it aims to make Istanbul the heart of progress in infrastructure and energy projects.
