We can support you throughout many types of financial transactions with our comprehensive suite of corporate trust and escrow services. When you have an important transaction to complete, you want to be completely satisfied before giving the green light to transfer the relevant monies, funds, securities or assets. That's when IQ-EQ escrow services will give you the confidence to close.
Alternatively, you may be a party to a cross-border transaction that requires a common legal agreement between the two parties exchanging the assets. Our corporate trust and escrow services help you to create the necessary arrangements to allow a trusted third party to hold the assets until all the terms of the transactions are met. From the setting up of an escrow account to termination.
Over the years we have become a reliable third party for many law firms and financial institutions (banks, insurance companies, private equity companies) for escrow services for all kinds of assets.
Our escrow services include;

Corporate Trust Services
Our range of corporate trust services also covers the management of trusts and trust administration. Such corporate trusts are implemented via the temporary (99 year’s max.) ownership transfer of assets or rights in a dedicated estate managed by a corporate trustee. Banks or debt funds require the setup of such trusts to efficiently secure credit repayment. It also provides corporate borrowers with better access to debt capital, especially when time is at a premium (Collateral Corporate Trusts). Alternatively, such transfers aim at monitoring the management of assets via a reputable third party manager for a wide variety of situations (family company shareholding issues, transition management needs, special account cash management, Real Estate SPV etc.) (Management Corporate Trusts).
Our corporate trust services include;
- Provide corporate trust structures to meet your business requirements.
- Documentation review (corporate trust agreement and ancillary. documentation drafted by signing parties counsels).
- Filing of the agreement.
- Accounting and audit of trust assets on a yearly basis.
- Corporate trust administration and reporting.
- Management of assets according to the corporate trustee’s mission (bespoke mandate: hands-off to hands-on management of the assets & rights).
