Head of Department

The Department of Research undertakes economic and financial research studies for the CMB to develop long-term strategies and to take the appropriate actions on the basis of sound determinations. The Department analyzes and diagnoses the needs of the Turkish capital markets, the entire capital market system in general and makes policy recommendations for the development of new financial instruments, activities and markets and also for the amendments of the existing ones. Within this framework the Department carries out analytical studies on local markets, but also on the international financial system and foreign national markets.

Apart from these, the Department carries out the international relations of the CMB. The membership of the CMB to the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) is the most important among them. Furthermore, the relationships with the relevant groups in the OECD and EC are continued.
