Who We Are
Alternatif Bank joined the Turkish banking industry in 1991. In 2013, The Commercial Bank (P.S.Q.C.), Qatar’s first private bank and one of the region’s prominent and prestigious financial institutions, became the majority shareholder of Alternatif Bank with 75% ownership.
Following a 3-year partnership, Alternatif Bank became the 100% subsidiary of The Commercial Bank by the end of 2016 and set off toward much bigger targets in perfect alignment with The Commercial Bank’s international vision and objectives both in Turkey and abroad. The Bank completed its corporate transformation in March 2018 by maximising the interaction between the two banks, changed its name, logo and corporate identity and decided to continue its activities under the brand name of Alternatif Bank.
As Alternatif Bank we’ve built our values that define our corporate culture on the principles of advisory and prudent banking. We state our values as approaching our clients with frankness, embracing our clients, breaking new grounds, working hard and coming up with a solution whenever our costumers need us.
Alternatif Bank continues its activities in domestic and international markets by strengthening its reputation and credibility with its strong correspondent bank relations and The Commercial Bank’s support.
With its Head Office in Istanbul, 27 branches, nearly 1.000 employees and seamless service approach, Alternatif Bank serves businesses from all sectors that produce, create jobs and contribute to the economy. Apart from its branches serving as conventional distribution channels, Alternatif Bank provides its services via Alternatif Bank Internet Banking, mobile application, Alternatif Bank Customer Contact Center and the network of owned and contracted ATMs located over 4.700 points.
