Best international bank to join? Seems like the options are Citi, Standard Chartered, and HSBC. Can you advise on the pros/cons of each?

Hi OP, I have just moved to the region and I am wondering which bank you selected and your rationale? I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Moving next week and haven’t decided yet. See below for some high level stuff. I will know more once I get there. HSBC seems to have many branches but have taken a hit to their reputation due to a poor display of ethics recently. Citi is very well established in the US (where I am from), and offers a high yield savings account. They don’t have as many branches as HSBC. Don’t know much about Standard Chartered.

Thank you. I have just moved from Ireland so I am still researching which is best.
