Capital Markets Advisory

Being an alternative to bank credit, capital markets are considered as one of the primary funding sources of corporates around the world.

Besides its wide local distribution network, YKI has a very strong international sales platform and also benefits from its organic ties with its global business partners in terms of global market investors that are the primary factors behind a successful ECM deal.

Debt Capital Markets

Local debt capital markets have experienced a rapid growth since the regulatory developments started in 2010. Since then, DCM products have become one of the primary components of the capital markets in Turkey. Thanks to ever-growing demand, the local DCM products continue to offer flexible funding alternatives to issuers and a lucrative investment opportunity for professional and retail investors.
