The emergence of new factors affecting the dynamics of the number of branches of national banks, stricter financial policies of national economies aimed at controlling the performance of financing operations by transnational financial institutions, increasing the range of services provided by transnational banks are currently contributing to a change in the strategy for realizing the economic interests of transnational banks. It is economically inexpedient to compete with transnational banks of developed economies for banks in developing countries. The options for promoting their services and gaining market share can be the search for a certain category of customers who can’t afford the services of international banks, as well as the conclusion of transactions for joint project financing of the largest national industrial and infrastructure projects. In this paper, we study the process of transnationalization of bank capital in the face of changes in the institutional environment of countries - recipients of capital.
