    Banking universe is characterized by multiple dimensions of financial risks affecting the performances. This multiplication of bank risks raises problems of defining the various risks. In recent years progress has been made once with the regulation of risks and this study proposes an inventory of them. Besides this aspect, the risk and performance are inextricably connected. For performances, traditional accounting measures are an essential reference. But they are not always adapted to requirements. The measures of performances as market values are complementary and their adjustment according to risk is a permanent concern for the banking sector. Defining the risk and performances is a classical approach, but important because it is the starting point of risk management. This analysis summarizes in a critical manner, the common definitions regarding the risk and presents the basic definitions that were mentioned throughout the work. I have structured this material on two plans. The first plan recalls the great stages of risks evolution in the banking and financial world, in order to reach today's situation where the need to measure different risks and control them became an evidence. The second plan describes the framework of risk and performance measurement.
