Global Bank Account?

Dear all!

I recently started thinking about simplifying my personal banking as working and living in different countries left me with several bank accounts in different currencies. Until now I've always chosen local banks as I did not expected travelling so much but now I'm tempted to setup an account with Citi Bank in order to minimize my debit & credit cards, online banking logins, PIN codes, phone numbers...

How do you manage accounts based in different countries?

Do you keep your bank account after moving to another country or do you simply close it?
Do you use one of the global companies like HSBC or Citi - or do you go for local banks?
Do you use foreign exchange like HiFX for transferring your money into another currency?

Thanks for any help or further ideas!
