UniCredit’s presence in Turkey is strongly tied to Yapı ve Kredi Bankası A.Ş., one of the leading commercial and retail banks in the country.

Established in 1944 as the first nationwide privately held bank, Yapı ve Kredi Bankası A.Ş. is today the fourth largest private bank in Turkey. Yapı ve Kredi Bankası A.Ş.’s main shareholders are UniCredit and Koç Group.

The bank’s current structure evolved from its legal merger with Koçbank in October 2006, which unified Yapı ve Kredi Bankası A.Ş.’s and Koçbank’s competencies, projecting the new bank as a premier franchise in Turkey offering state-of-the-art products and services to its customers.
