The statutory fund of the financial organization will be $500 million, which will be divided into 10,000 shares with a par value of $50,000 each.

The Turkic Investment Fund, headquartered in Istanbul, is being created for 20 years and will have the status of an international financial organization. However, the board of governors may decide to extend or close the fund.

For the first time, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan came up with the initiative to create an investment fund at the November OTS summit in Samarkand. He named trade, transport and energy as promising areas for his work.

At the same summit, Shavkat Mirziyoyev proposed expanding ties between the Turkic states and put forward the initiative to create a Space of New Economic Opportunities in the OTS.
