I believe it is government owned and should be as safe as any of the others.

Re: Best bank?

In all respects Akbank is the safest bank in Turkey> Finansbank now that is owned by Qataris is probably second best, and for many business segments is very competitive- definitely worth considering. Next is probably Ziraat bank- will be the last govt bank to go down- Halk followd by Vakif would be some of the first. For last to go down is maybe Isbank is third.
Yapi Kredi, Garanti, ING these are all owned by large Euro Land banks that are very wobbly..
HSBC is self standing but it is probably the least functional - very un-nerving technically- but the staff are great.

For online nternet usage and general English support- Garanti is the very best and has been for a very long time. Yapi Kredi and IsBank are good now and coming along.

Denizbank looks good but I wouldnt want to look under the covers at their balance sheet, if there is one- it may jut be a pillow case stuffed with who knows what

Interesting, but not sure what you're basing your assessment on ?

Out of interest - Do you have a view on part French owned TEB
