The bank’s success can be attributed to a new strategy it implemented last year based on five pillars, Finansbank General Manager Temel Güzeloğlu said in an announcement following the results release. The bank is committed to listening to its customers and understanding their concerns, providing them with the most appropriate services and products, providing 100 percent transparency for these products and services, providing quick solutions to problems, and being on the customer’s side on both good and bad days, Güzeloğlu said.
“The results we announced today prove that Finansbank has internalized this new banking model, and more importantly that its customers have rewarded Finansbank for it,” said Güzeloğlu.
