In the pre-Covid era, you often had the opportunity to go on overseas business trips if you worked in an international bank. In the three local banks, hardly. This will probably be the case post-Covid as well. The more important issue imo is salary. BB pay is sick and even international banks pay better than local banks. Progression is better as well. Although local banks are better for job stability and are excellent to retire in.
Local banks focus on domestic market is just a better way of saying they serve smaller clients. Big domestic clients are still served by the international banks.
