Simsek Set to Meet CBRT Candidate in Ankara

  • Bloomberg report that the newly minted Turkish finance minister Mehmet Simsek is to meet with potential CBRT governor candidate Hafize Gaye Erkan in Ankara today.
  • That's broadly inline with expectations - we wrote earlier today:
  • "Dunya report that Simsek may appoint Hafize Gaye Erkan as governor to the central bank. Erkan was born and raised in Turkey and earned a PhD scholarship to Princeton. After earning her doctorate, she led a team and developed investment algorithms at Goldman Sachs, then went to First Republic in roles including Co-CEO, President and Board Member."
