Escrow and agency services

Choosing the right escrow agent is crucial for efficient administration and risk mitigation.


As one of the world’s leading financial services organizations, Citi can serve as a neutral third-party escrow and depository agent to receive, safeguard, service and disburse assets, including cash, securities and physical documents.


Our escrow and agency services can help simplify and centralize transaction flows, save time, and reduce your administrative burdens.

Citi can facilitate a broad range of transactions in escrow, including:

  • Mergers and acquisitions – good faith deposits, special and general indemnification, and purchase price adjustments
  • Litigation – class action settlements, mass tort, state and federal settlements, arbitration, and private settlements
  • Bankruptcy – asset sales, stalking horse, 363 sales, liquidation of assets, and professional fees and expenses


We can adapt your existing escrow agreement or utilize our customizable standard agreement. You have the ability to combine closing, paying and disbursing agent services with escrow agency services, utilizing a single source for your post-closing needs.

We offer access to a wide range of cash deposit accounts1 with varied tenors and interest-bearing choices, as well as investment custody accounts.


Dedicated escrow specialists across the US provide individualized service and structure each escrow account to meet the specific needs and requirements of the parties involved.

You benefit from our experience providing bespoke solutions for complex transactions.


Our local escrow services are augmented with access to Citi’s global network spanning 160+ countries and jurisdictions.
