While we maintained our steady performance in our balance sheet, we also continued our asset quality in this period. In addition, we continued our improvement in our TRY deposit volume, on which we place great emphasis, and achieved 105% growth in comparison with the previous year-end. Thus, we have reached necessary proportional thresholds within the scope of liraization strategy of the CBRT. We will continue to add value to all of our stakeholders, particularly our customers, and the economy of our country with our ‘Insight and Advisor Banking’ approach.”

Our purpose is to offer a flawless experience to our customers with a digital banking perspective that touches upon people and an approach based on rights. We reap the rewards of all our works primarily as customer satisfaction, accompanied by the number of customers and growth in deposits. In this scope, 65% of our new customers, who joined us as of the end of third quarter, came from digital channels. Likewise, the number of accounts opened through our digital channels increased by 178% in comparison with the end of 2021, while our deposit volume in accounts opened through these channels increased by 245%. During this quarter, we continued our activities in the field of Accessible Banking without interruption along with the financial performance that we displayed. Accordingly, we launched our ‘Visual Banking Terms Glossary for the Disabled’, which we expect to have a significant impact, particularly in terms of financial inclusion. As Alternatif Bank, with the ‘Responsible Banking’ principle that focuses on people, we will continue to progress towards our long-term growth targets with the trust of our shareholder Commercial Bank, support of our Board of Directors, and devotion of our competent employees in the future.”
