Abstract: Financial performance evaluation of firms is a kind of multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) problem which has multiple and conflicting criteria (financial ratios). Companies should monitor their performance indicators in order to ensure appropriate and timely decisions and plans. The aim of this study is to evaluate the financial performance of five listed insurance companies in the Istanbul Stock Exchange (Borsa IstanbulBIST) during 2010–2015 (quarterly) periods. VIKOR method is used for the ranking of firms. Our model shows that Avivasa Emeklilik and Hayat A.S. (AVISA) is the best performing insurance company in these five companies during the years 2010–2015.
