Ep. 134 - Hunting for Value in Turkey with Mesut Ellialtioglu, Talas Turkey Value Fund, LP

August 12, 2020

In this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Mesut Ellialtioglu, Turkey Investment Officer of the Talas Turkey Value Fund, LP. I was introduced to Mesut by Matthew Peterson, a recent guest on our show, and I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about the investing landscape in Turkey. In this interview, Mesut provides an overview about what the capital markets have been like in Turkey - in fact, he was the first financial analyst in Turkey since the establishment of the Istanbul Stock Exchange.

We also have an open conversation about how investors should assess investing in Turkey from a geopolitical and social perspective, and I really appreciate Mesut's willingness to address some difficult topics. I hope you enjoy my chat with Mesut Ellialtioglu as he describes his hunt for value in Turkey.
