Use for high-value items
Need to buy or sell high-value items, such as cars, ships, planes, company shares or real estate? Then a FINCI Escrow account will allow you to safely complete the sale or purchase. This service is available for personal and business transactions.
How FINCI escrow works
1. Deal agreed
The buyer and seller sign an agreement detailing the terms for the purchase of the high-value item. Then complete compliance checks to open the account.
2. Funds sent
The buyer transfers the money into the newly opened escrow account (note: only FINCI has control of the account).
3. Item exchanged
The seller delivers or transfers the high-value item to the buyer as per the terms of the deal and informs FINCI.
4. Funds released
Once the buyer confirms with FINCI the high-value item was correctly received, we release the funds to the seller.
Reduce risk the smart way.
An escrow account is the smart way to reduce the risk of high value transactions, protecting both parties. Funds are only released once the terms of the agreement have been met. So the seller doesn’t have to worry about the buyer not paying. Nor does the buyer worry about not receiving the high-value item they purchased.
FINCI is a fully licensed Electronic Money Institution (EMI), regulated by the Bank of Lithuania. Your escrow account is safely ring fenced from our business activities, so the funds in the escrow account would never be at risk. This is the safest way to transact high value items.
