Istanbul Finance Center gathers international firms with the capital markets and financial services sectors.
Global financial centers are the city regions where institutions with the international competence and capacity necessary to ensure the flow of goods, services, information and capital between the national economies of the countries in which they are located and the other economies of the world are gathered.
Besides, global financial centers are very important as they are the source of high-volume financial transactions and innovations. States strive for a region in their own country to become a global financial center. Thus, they try to reach the economic benefits of coming to the fore globally.
Istanbul Financial Center (IFC) project aims the same thing not only for Istanbul but also for Turkey. IFC will be the representative and pioneer of innovative and sustainable development with the projects to be developed on lands owned by the Turkish banking sector, public banks such as the Central Bank, Ziraat Bank, Halk Bank, Vakiflar Bank, as well as public institutions such as the SPK and BBDK, and the private sector offices.
