The Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) project was initiated by Finansportfoy in 2003 in response to a number of factors:

  • Turkey required new investment tools to increase diversity for its investors.
  • Extensive market analysis undertaken by Finansportfoy indicated that ETFs would meet many of the markets needs.
  • Finansportfoy partnered with other globally recognised institutions to deliver a world class product.


In 2005 Finansportfoy launched Turkey’s first ETF Dow Jones Istanbul 20 Type A Exchange Traded Fund (DJIST).
