“With its different opinions and approaches and with a growing attendance every year, each IFS summit has become an important event, scrutinizing problems and searching for solutions for world, for the region and for Turkey.
I would like to express my gratitude to everyone and to Mr. Ömer Faruk Ünal in particular and to those who contributed to the organization of this event.”
61st and 62nd Governments Deputy Prime Minister
“The Istanbul Finance Summit brought together some of the most influential speakers in Turkey as well as from across the globe and was highly valuable for investors like myself that came from the United States and look for global investment opportunities. It is clear that Turkey has embarked on an irreversible path of deregulation and wealth accretion which will continue for the foreseeable future. Istanbul’s strategic location can also make it a super regional financial center which can serve the rapidly growing markets in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa. Turkish companies are highly dynamic in their external expansion and further deregulation by the government and tax incentives can boost an already high growth trajectory for the economy. It was a pleasure to speak at the conference and I look forward to coming to Istanbul in future years.”

“By following the content of the agenda and with its guests, IFS’14 has been an important event this year, as well.
Efforts to make Istanbul the finance center, with its panel topics such as venture fund, islamic finance in which innovative finance instruments were discussed, were all greeted positively by the participants and were very informative.
Within this scope, i would like express my gratitude to IFS team for their successful efforts.”
