The banks are important financial institutions in the financial system and the economy. Establishing a stabile and contemporary system is a basic precondition for establishing a healthy and dynamic economic development of a country, and it is a base for financing the dynamics of the economic prosperity. That is especially important in countries such as our country, with an undeveloped capital market where the banks are main carriers and sources of investments which will help the economic development and create a possibility for the best transformation of savings into productive investments indispensable for initiation and support of the economic development. In the contemporary conditions for economy, the banks manage the economic processes, where they participate actively and directly in finding out optimal solutions for the capital accumulation and use. In the situation of fast changes of the business environment, and the increasing market competitiveness, the banks’ policy which should be directed towards higher profitability, is more highlighted.
