As M&A activity both in Türkiye and internationally is rapidly increasing, cooperation between public and private sector organisations is often required. The demand for investment banking services is also increasing on a daily basis with a continually expanding pipeline of restructuring and brokerage transactions. As of April 2021, a total of 14 development and investment banks are currently operating from across 64 branches in Türkiye. Three of these are state-backed banks, while the remaining 11 are domestic or international private banking institutions. The development and investment banks in Türkiye represent 7% of the banking sector, whilst their capital adequacy ratio equates to 26 percent.
