estab

Mehmet Simsek, Turkey’s Treasury and Finance minister, met with executives from international asset management companies, investment funds, multinational banks and infrastructure funds with total assets of more than $75 trillion in London, following visits to the Gulf and the US.

Şimşek continued his “road show” investor meetings, which started with Gulf countries, in New York under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who traveled to the US to attend the 78th General Assembly of the United Nations (UN). Şimşek then moved to London, one of the most important stops in finance, and held intensive contacts with international investors on October 4-6.

Within the scope of the visit, Şimşek met with the managers of international asset management companies, investment funds, multinational banks and infrastructure funds with a total asset size of more than 75 trillion dollars and held meetings with more than 100 senior executives from approximately 85 different institutions, including rating agencies.

Şimşek explained Turkey’s new economic policies and the targets and reform preparations in the Medium Term Program to international investors and representatives of credit rating agencies and invited investors to evaluate the opportunities in Turkey.

Şimşek is making new plans for new meetings.

Following these visits, Şimşek will represent Turkey at the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, which will start next week in Marrakech, where he is scheduled to hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts from various countries, fund managers and representatives of investment banks.

Simsek will be accompanied by Hafize Gaye Erkan, Governor of the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT), at these meetings.
