2014 Annual Report
Related Party Transactions

In accordance with article 49 of the Banking Law no 5411 and because the Bank’s capital belongs entirely to the Turkish Treasury, the risk group of which Ziraat Bank is a member consists of itself and the companies over which it exercises control over, either directly or indirectly.

Relations between the Bank and the members of the risk group in which it controls a stake consist of banking transactions conducted in compliance with the Banking Law within the framework of normal bank-customer relationships carried out at arm’s length, and consist primarily of borrowing and lending and of accepting and extending deposits.

Details of the amounts of the transactions that Ziraat Bank engaged in with members of its own risk group in 2014 and their reasons are presented in Footnote VII of section five of the year-end financial report that is included in this annual report.
