Crediting is one of the basic directions of activity of banks. It is connected with that realisation of credit transactions should be considered as a defining component of bank management. According to this defining component each separate bank will organise loan of resources and their subsequent arrangement on proper conditions and on proper risk. Thus possibilities and the expediency of crediting are defined by a bank size in many respects. At the same time development of real sector of economy allows to speak about competitiveness, both individual industries of economy and the country as a whole. Hence, the efficiency of bank crediting of real sector of economy in the context of separate banking groups on example of Ukraine is investigated in this work. The given research is carried out with use of SFA methodology. There is also revealed the correlation between volumes of crediting of real sector of economy and efficiency of such crediting for separate banking groups. There was made the conclusion about necessity of balanced use of real resources of banks for growth of crediting efficiency.
