Shareholder Activism in Turkey

Shareholder Activism in Turkey

Shareholder activism is not a well-developed concept in Turkish law. Companies usually do not face activist movements as the majority of the companies are family-controlled entities and market players are not as aggressive as players in other countries. Examples of shareholder activism in Turkey are therefore very limited. It may become more prevalent if the investment climate in Turkey becomes more structured.
