Practically, there is no human activity without being connected with some form of risk. A complexity of the activity is in a close connection with the risk level and, as a rule, the greater complexit leads to a greater risk. The importance of risk is stressed to a large extent in some sectors, such as financial institutions, especially banks. Risk is not a unique category. The most represented type of risk in credit is a credit risk. The optimization of risk has its positive effect on the total economic efficiency, prevents negative allocation of resources into marginal and unprofitable programs. At the same time, the credit risk size depends on total macroeconomic moves and institutional conditions. Internationalization of financial and credit courses, as a general tendency, expecially influences countries in transition.
