Despite playing an important role in many major transactions, escrow - the holding of assets such as cash, securities, contracts or other collateral on behalf of the parties involved in the transaction until key processes are concluded - is often taken for granted.

This is both because it’s perceived as a relatively straightforward service, and because traditionally there have been a wide range of parties willing and able to offer it - particularly banks and law firms. Yet this is changing in a way that we believe warrants attention, and builds the case for independent escrow services.

During the webinar we will discuss the importance of choosing an established and knowledgeable Escrow partner, the challenges of a cross border transaction and the importance of a global partner, the choice between Cash vs Asset and pricing including fees, interest and the effect of Basel III. The webinar should reveal some interesting details even for the most seasoned M&A player.

Who Should Attend:
