ESCROW SERVICES IN ASIA PACIFIC

 

When closing a transaction, the parties involved are often struggling with the risk of exchanging assets and funds at the same time.

 

Escrow structures ensure that the parties do not bear the same risk as in open trade. Before any assets or documents exchange hands, the Escrow Agent ensures that both sides comply with the transaction documentation and that the required funds are available. The Escrow Agent acts independently and with a segregated bank account to protect all parties in the transaction from potential defaults and/or fraud by the other parties.
