Our presence in Turkey, Caucasus & Central Asia

Frankfurt School has been firmly rooted in the Turkey, Caucasus & Central Asia region through the establishment of our first regional office in Turkey in 2003. Since then, the region has evolved to become a critical pillar of our operations and we are currently managing ongoing projects in eight countries: Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

Our consultancy assignments cover the entire spectrum of our thematic areas, with a particular focus on agri-finance, climate finance, SME finance, women banking. Our long presence in Turkey and project offices in multiple countries of operation have allowed us to develop excellent insights into the financial and business sectors that leverage the historically close-knit cultural, ethnic, and linguistic ties between the countries of the region.

More information about some of our flagship projects in the region can be found below.
