The binary and multinomial logit models are applied for prediction of the Russian banks defaults (license withdrawals) using data from bank balance sheets and macroeconomic indicators. Significantly different models correspond to the two main grounds for license withdrawal: financial insolvency and money laundering. Analysis of data for the period 2005.2–2008.4 for accurate prediction of a bank’s financial insolvency, which is the focus of interest for the Russian Deposit Insurance Agency, demonstrates that the multinomial model doesn’t outperform the binary model.
