Keeping bank account after moving from Singapore?

Been searching online without finding any useful information, but am wondering if anyone knows or has experience with keeping a Singapore bank account after leaving Singapore. As far as I know, all banks require residency to open a bank account, but what happens if I some day leave the country, but would like to retain my bank account there?

The reasons I'd like to retain a bank account in SG are the up to 50K gov't insurance in case of bank default and that the country I'd likely move to is far more turbulent than SG both in terms of currency and politics.
