Legal Framework for Banking and Finance in Turkey

The banking and finance sector in Turkey is regulated by several government agencies, including the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency (in Turkish “BDDK”), the Capital Markets Board (in Turkish “SPK”), and the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (in Turkish “TCMB”). These agencies oversee the licensing, regulation, and supervision of financial institutions, as well as the issuance and trading of securities.

The legal framework for banking and finance in Turkey is primarily governed by the Turkish Commercial Code (in Turkish “TTK”), the Law on Banks and Financial Institutions, the Capital Markets Law, and the Law on Payment and Securities Settlement Systems, Payment Services and Electronic Money Institutions.
