Many companies have leveraged technology to disrupt traditional business services in the past few decades, and business escrow is no different. Modern technology has allowed for a new type of escrow agent – one that adds simplicity and full government backed safety to the risk reduction businesses already expect from an escrow account.
With continuing geopolitical tensions and an uncertain economic outlook, the need for business escrow has only increased heading into the new year. Whether a business is making a major investment, acquiring a competitor, or restocking inventory, escrow can help protect their investments. So, what are the key benefits a business escrow agent should offer in 2024?
In 2024, business escrow accounts should reduce transaction risk.
Business escrow services can provide protections for both buyers and sellers who are entering into a large transaction. In these situations, the escrow agent acts as a neutral third party ensuring that contract terms are met, thereby reducing transactional risk for both parties.
For buyers, escrow ensures that payment funds are held securely with an unbiased third party until the conditions of the contract are met. In this way, escrow prevents a buyer from paying for goods that don’t arrive or that don’t meet the agreed upon specifications.
With escrow, sellers also receive peace of mind that the funds for the transaction are set aside and available for transfer once the sale concludes. Additionally, goods that are expensive, fragile, or time-consuming to manufacture can be covered under the terms of the escrow agreement to ensure safe delivery before funds are exchanged.
In 2024, business escrow accounts should offer the highest level of safety.
Escrow agents should have access to multiple options for protecting business cash while it waits to be deployed, but the most robust option is government insurance through the FDIC or NCUA. Both of these organizations are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, but coverage is limited and, in many cases, the standard $250k limit is not enough.
Our company, the American Deposit Management Co. [ADM], maintains a proprietary network of banks and credit unions. This network allows us to distribute exceptionally large sums of business cash to achieve full government protection – far above the traditional limits.
