Garanti BBVA

It is a Turkish entity specializing in financial and banking services. Its service area covers many countries in the world. It is considered the second-largest private bank in the country. It offers corporate, commercial, SME, investment, retail, private, and more banking services.


It was created by a corporation in 1946 in Ankara due to the need that members had to invest in profitable businesses after the Second World War. It established its first branches that same year in Anafartalar. It had rapid growth and, in just seven years, managed to open 22 offices. In 1950, it moved its headquarters to Istanbul. In 1983, the bank already belonged to the Doğuş Group. In the 1990s, it became the first financial institution in that country to operate in international markets. The bank acquired Osmanlı Bank in 1996. Körfezbank and Osmanlı Bank merged in 2001, and the latter, in turn, joined with Garanti Bank. BBVA became the majority shareholder of the bank, which was renamed as Garanti BBVA in 2019.
