Escrow Agency Services

Ensure your protection in business transactions involving the exchange of large sums of money, properties, and other high value assets by opening an escrow account.

An escrow is a financial arrangement where an impartial third party (escrow agent) safeguards the assets/funds until the parties involved fulfill their obligations. With China Bank-Trust and Asset Management Group as your escrow agent, you are assured that:

  • Your rights and interests to the transaction, as well as those of your counterparty/ies, are protected
  • You are relieved from the burden of monitoring compliance by your counterparty/ies of their respective responsibilities and obligations
  • The funds/documents will be released to the appropriate party only upon the satisfactory performance/delivery of the concerned parties’ deliverables under the transaction
