Ziraat Bankası

It is known as Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Ziraat Bankası or Ziraat Bankası and is the second-largest bank in Turkey. It specializes in finance and insurance and operates its services worldwide. It covers consumer, corporate, investment, and private banking.


Midhat Pasha, the governor of the province of Niš, founded Funds of the Fatherland (Memleket Sandığı) in 1863 during the Ottoman Empire. It offered its services to the farmers of that time and operated with a state guarantee. In 1888, it changed its name to Agriculture Bank (Ziraat Bankası) and established its headquarters in Istanbul. During the war years, the bank’s policy suffered in several aspects until the war ended and the bank reopened as a unit. In 1973, it became a commercial bank. Through its years of history, it created new national and international institutions and offices. That has allowed it to become the largest bank in Turkey.
