Escrow solutions

Use our escrow solutions to manage the secure transition of funds for a range of corporate and private transactions. 


As an escrow agent, we understand that reducing global transaction risk is a top priority for businesses. When making financial transactions, either as a buyer or a seller, it’s important to ensure that funds are held securely.

We offer escrow solutions for individuals and institutional investors across different sectors, holding funds on behalf of two or more entities to be released as per an escrow agreement.

Mergers and acquisitions

We offer a range of escrow services to support M&A transactions globally, acting as an independent party.

Holdback escrows

Our holdback accounts mitigate transactional risk. Clients can place a portion of the purchase price left unpaid at the closing date in escrow.


Our third-party escrow account solution hold these funds securely until escrow agreement obligations are satisfied.

Good faith deposits

Good faith deposits allow clients to hold a portion of the transaction purchase price in an escrow account while two or more parties engage in bidding.


If an agreement is cancelled, Interpolitan returns funds as per any cancellation terms. 

M&A Takeover Codes

Regulations sometimes vary between jurisdictions.


In the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, for example, Takeover Codes are regulatory frameworks that govern the procedures and rules involved in the acquisition or takeover of companies, ensuring transparency, fairness, and protection of the interests of shareholders and stakeholders involved in such transactions.

Closing/paying agent

Clients can use our corporate escrow services to combine multiple funding sources that cover the total purchase price

before a deal closes. The escrow account has two solutions:

  • A closing agent to facilitate the exchange between the seller and the buyer.

  • A paying agent, where Interpolitan distributes funds to the selling shareholders directly from an escrow account.


Escrow account features

We act as an independent third party, holding funds or assets in a cost-effective escrow account until all parties have fulfilled the terms of the escrow agreement.

How escrow works


The buyer and seller agree to the terms of a transaction. You provide us with the details and terms of the agreement.


The buyer deposits their funds into the Interpolitan escrow account, safeguarded by our tier one banking partners.


After the buyer confirms the agreed goods or services have been received, the funds are transferred from the escrow account to the seller.


Funds reach the seller on time, eliminating chargeback or debt collection costs.

Once the escrow account balance is cleared as per the agreed terms, the escrow agreement is terminated.
