We have enriched the 'Fund Market in Private Pension", we have introduced in the previous months as a first across the industry, with Mukafat Portfoy, the subsidiary of Aktif Bank, and established an interest-free fund for them. All of our interest-free funds, either established or to be established on the Automatic Enrollment System, will be managed by Mukafat Portfoy, which means that the number of options we offer to our customers through interest-bearing and interest-free fund management is 12. With the agreement we have executed with Aktif Bank and Sigortayeri in the fields of life insurance and BES (Private Pension System), we have both extended our sales channels and diversified the fund management alternatives as appropriate to our customers' preference. We believe that this cooperation will be expanded rapidly and maintained for a long period of years, and that we will attain fruitful results.
