Corporate Escrow Services

Transactions that require a third-party to hold funds in escrow require a trusted partner. Key’s reputation for financial responsibility and attention to detail has been built on decades of experience, and expertise. Your corporate escrow services will be led by an experienced banker who will work to ensure that your instructions are carefully documented and executed to minimize transaction risks and build trust amongst all stakeholders.

In our non-fiduciary role, we can hold cash, stock and other defined assets. While waiting for your transaction to close, we provide monthly detailed reporting on assets, account activity and accumulated annual interest. Cash is immediately deposited in competitive federal money market funds to further safeguard its value.

Throughout your escrow experience you will have a single, trusted point of contact for dealing with your needs to see that your funds will be released on time and under the correct conditions.
