We cross borders

Unlike many banks, we can hold and distribute your escrow funds directly in foreign currencies and with support in your local time zone. Through our affiliate global banking partners, we can facilitate foreign currency payments, so that you can set up your escrow with a U.S. partner rather than a separate international division of a regional bank. We make escrows involving cross-border or emerging markets transactions easier.

Computershare does not provide legal or tax accounting services for its customers. Customers should always consult their own professional tax and legal advisors in connection with any effort to qualify a particular transaction for favorable treatment under applicable tax laws and regulations.
