Escrow & Settlement

ABN AMRO Escrow & Settlement is a leading escrow agent and provider of settlement and payment related agency services. We work alongside many of the world's most pre-eminent law firms to help facilitate 100+ transactions per annum for our clients across several commercial and industrial sectors. We are proud to count the world’s leading private equity firms and institutional investors as our clients.

Next to the provision of escrow services, our business has also successfully executed numerous paying agency mandates in all major currencies - often involving FX requirements and disbursements to 100+ payees across many geographies and time zones.

We pride ourselves on being dedicated to deliver the highest quality insight and assistance, using a combination of a pragmatic approach with a strong commitment to collegiate ways of working. Clients consistently choose to work with us as our offering always emphasises:

  • Speed: our UK commercial team is fully integrated with our dedicated Dutch payment and client on-boarding teams, giving us the ability to handle queries, turn around legal documentation and process 'know your client' information faster than our competitors.

  • Simplicity: even in the most complex of transactions, we seek to implement simple and cost effective structures using straightforward legal documentation, which is easy for clients and legal counsel to work with.

  • Expertise: our UK commercial team includes highly qualified senior management and former lawyers with experience at leading law firms.

  • Continuous Support: our payments team focuses purely on the management, administration and oversight of all of our escrow accounts (around 1000 in total) - guiding our clients from set up, maintenance and closure of each account.

  • Bespoke Care: our products can be tailored to meet the requirements of many different parties, situations and jurisdictions and we are always happy to discuss creating bespoke arrangements for our clients.

M&A, Corporate Finance (including debt and equity capital markets), Litigation, Agency, Financial Restructuring, Trade and Reinsurance.
