Escrow Agency Services

Whenever there are deals involving the transfer of funds or valuable assets between or among parties who are generally unfamiliar with each other, it is always best to have an impartial third party (known as an escrow agent) who will see to it that the terms and conditions of the transaction are complied with.  The escrow agent shall also be responsible for holding the funds and/or documents for release to the appropriate party upon satisfaction of their respective duties and obligations.

Trust China Bank to serve as an impartial party to a variety of business deals and transactions.  With China Bank-Trust Group as your Escrow Agent, you are assured that:

  • Your rights and interests as well as that of the other parties to the transaction will be  safeguarded;
  • You are relieved from the burden of monitoring compliance by your counterparty/ies of their respective responsibilities and obligations;
  • CBC-Trust  will ensure that funds//documents will be released to the appropriate party only upon the satisfactory performance/delivery  of the concerned parties’   deliverables under the transaction.
