We provide escrow services for a range of international businesses, including multinationals, accountancy and law firms, and government agencies. We set up and manage a special purpose vehicle to act as an escrow agent for your transaction, keeping your assets separate and making bankruptcy as remote as possible.

Our services cover all escrow functions to ensure transactions close securely and efficiently, and with total convenience for you.

The Escrow Process

  1. Both parties sign an escrow agreement and an escrow account is set up.
  2. Party B deposits funds in the escrow account.
  3. The escrow agent confirms receipt of the escrow funds to both parties.
  4. When a payment event happens (such as completion of the transaction) the escrow agent releases the escrow funds in accordance with the escrow agreement.
