Turkish real estate sector offers great potential, and it is no secret. The ratio of the housing credits to GDP (%7 as of September 2013) and the level of securitization are at relatively low levels. Mega infrastructure projects and urban transformation feed the momentum of the sector. Besides, in addition to the residential housing, office building construction need has also increased with the Istanbul Financial Centre (IFC) project. It is happy to say that, with enhanced regulations and reshaped markets in accordance with the global standards, we have the necessary infrastructure for effective financing and investing. Turkish real estate sector is a sector of opportunities.

Strong demand side will further be supported by institutional investors like newly introduced real estate funds and reformed private pension system which has increased more than twofold in terms of portfolio size in the last 3 years. The number of real estate investment companies listed on Stock Exchange Istanbul has also more than doubled in the last 4 years, reaching 30 by the end of 2013. Increase in the number of listed REICs does not only reflect the dynamism but also points to the increased transparency in the real estate sector which is a key parameter of foreign investor interest. Indeed, Turkiye is ranked 3rd among the emerging markets for real estate investment and 4th among countries providing the best capital appreciation opportunity, in the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE) 2013 Survey.

As the main actor of the “Istanbul Finance Centre” project, our main motivation is to make Istanbul a financial hub where international market participants are located, adequate financial, legal and technical infrastructure are available for the development of new markets and products and financial activity is performed in an efficient manner. In line with the IFC vision, Stock Exchange Istanbul stepped up its efforts to turn into a global exchange with high liquidity, diverse issuer/investor base, state of the art technology and rich product mix. Istanbul’s potential appealed our enthusiasm and made available such time demanding process to take life in short time of span.
