Investors can meet their need for project financing easily in the Turkish credit market. The credit market consists of banks, factoring, leasing and insurance companies. There are three types of banks in Turkey: deposit banks, development/investment banks and participation banks.
Today, the Turkish banking system sets a good example to the global banking system in terms of operation, providing financing for all types of projects or supporting them.
Another related business practice is called factoring. According to the Financial Leasing, Factoring and Financing Companies Law No. 6361, factoring companies actually purchase receivables documented by invoices arising from goods and services sold and assume the risk of payment. The other financing method is leasing, which is a financial product introduced by the Law on Financial Leasing, No. 3226, dated 1985. Leasing in Turkey can be applied in the form of domestic lease, cross-border lease, sale and lease back, and sales-aid lease.
In addition to the ones based in Turkey, international developments banks, such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), European Investment Bank (EIB), and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) also provide funding for many projects in Turkey,
