Escrow arrangements provided by a neutral third party provider are an effective way of mitigating risk. 

We offer a range of escrow trust services to suit your business requirements, along with independent expertise and rapid turnaround in every type of situation.

Cash accounts can be held offshore or onshore, depending on client and transaction requirements.

Cash and securities are held by a clearing bank that we have appointed and / or our sub-custodian under the terms of our standard form escrow trust agreement. This agreement is available to transaction parties to expedite the escrow process and to gain efficiencies in terms of reducing contract negotiation time.

Our overall aim is to implement a process that is both smooth and as efficient as possible for all parties concerned.
