Culture and Art Activities
“Corporations, as large as ours, have two tasks. One is related to its areas of activity, second is related to society. We chose culture and arts. For this reason, we are the bank of culture and arts.” Kâzım Taşkent, 1944
Our founder Kâzım Taşkent uttered these words back in 1944, during the first days of our bank’s establishment. Those words, maybe have been told as wishes back then, but surely in time they have become a solid strategy of the bank.
This concept, which was definitely a corporate innovation at the time it was announced, has evolved into being an integral part of our corporate culture and still guides us in carrying out our activities with the same level of determination. Today, thanks to these words, we are regarded as a role model in banking industry vis-à-vis culture and arts.
