This is a bit of a subjective question, perhaps more of a safety concern.

I currently bank with Citibank (U.S), and since I know they have branches in other countries, could bankers in those other countries access accounts in the U.S? or only U.S branches can access your account?

    Have you asked Citibank? You might even frame the question that you might be overseas for a time and wonder if you can access your US account from foreign branches. Aug 15 '12 at 4:03

    What do you mean by access? Can they see your balances and transactions? or can you walk into the overseas branch and do transactions like deposits and withdrawals?

In today's computerized world, most of the operations run out of global centers. So all the back office operations would be running from places outside of US [like Singapore, India, London, Hong kong, Philippines etc ...] Citibank has a huge operations outside US [mostly in India, Singapore] and technically all the authorized staff can access accounts. The people [bankers] in the Citibank branches outside US however would not have access. The technology staff [quite a few outside US] would have limited access to the data.

    Working in a Bank I can tell you it really is limited. Only people who really need have access [seniority does not play role]. Plus all access are periodically audited.
