The combined business operates through a multi-channel delivery system including the Internet, automated teller machines ("ATMs") and call centers under the HSBC name. It has a network of 168 branches and offices in thirty eight cities providing a comprehensive range of personal, corporate, treasury, capital markets, stockbroking, fund management and investment banking services across the Turkish market.
