Erdoğan pointed out that the stock market is among the closest witnesses to the ups and downs of the historical journey of the past 1.5 centuries, and also highlighted how open the stock market is to manipulation. Erdoğan said that the stock market has not been able to fulfill its primary duty for many years and that foreigners have been stealing domestic investors and the country’s resources. He said that it has become a platform that he has abused through various manipulations.

“So much so that during this period, the notion that ‘the Turks will lose in Galata’ became a widely accepted opinion in society,” Erdoğan said, continuing:

“This perception of the early periods of our stock market was later reinforced. Although our stock exchange was inherited from the Ottoman Empire, it could not fulfill its primary duty for many years. For years, it became a platform where foreigners exploited domestic investors and the country’s resources through various manipulations. A reflection of this situation was the expression “playing the stock market”, which spread into the everyday language of our people instead of investing in the stock market.


The political establishment helped entrench this perception by targeting the stock market to get a few more votes. Investors were spooked by the “we’re broke, we’re out” scenario. However, the picture is different in developed countries, especially in continental Europe. What politicians are criticizing the country’s capital market here? vote He dreams of victory, even the system does not allow such manipulation.

“Thanks to the innovations and regulations we have implemented over the past 21 years, our capital market and stock exchange have undergone a radical transformation. With the opening of the Istanbul Financial Center, Turkey’s central position in the financial field has increased even more. The high growth potential of the Turkish economy has attracted the attention of both international and domestic investors. In recent years, we have observed that interest in the Turkish stock market has increased both domestically and internationally. “Turkey continues to attract foreign capital through the stock market, that is, it provides financing for its economic growth.”

Honestly, I want to emphasize financial literacy. We currently see that 8.6 million of our citizens have invested in the stock market in some way. All our citizens therefore need support in financial literacy through educational curricula. I believe that with the development of capital markets and inflation falling into the single digits, our companies will have access to capital-like resources at a much more reasonable cost in the long run. Because it will strengthen our participation in global competition. Our stock exchange is therefore a very important capital market institution and its healthy functioning is very important to us. “A healthy stock market will be the most important driver for our companies to access healthy financing.”
