In the reporting period, İşbank launched
“Gold Meetings at our Branches” and “Gold
Meetings at Goldsmiths” services. Through
these services, the Bank facilitates the
transfer of the so-called “under-the-
mattress” physical gold to customers’ gold
accounts, and mediates the rechanneling
of gold into the economy. “Gold Meetings
at Goldsmiths,” designed with a creative,
practical and secure employment of İşbank’s
technological infrastructure, is the first of
its kind in Turkey.

continue to expand. As of year-end 2012,
391 İşbank branches provided TurkDEX
services, from 339 branches in the previous
year. Efforts to further expand the TurkDEX
brokerage services will continue in 2013.

and the first of its kind in the country,
constituted 83.3% of all Type A fund
holders and 22.8% of the total portfolio

activities, the Type B Internet Liquid

customers through the internet banking
channels, was converted into the Type
B Short-Term Bill and Bond, available for
trading by all customers, retail and corporate
alike, from all channels. Hence, the Bank’s
mutual fund product range was expanded
with the addition of a fund that can be
traded instantly and that gives all investors
access to extra return possibilities in the
bonds and bills market.
In 2012, İşbank introduced seven capital-
protected mutual funds, based on various
assets.
