Financial and payment services


United has its own fully-licensed bank in Curaçao, which is regulated by the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten and provides financial services within the scope of its licence. We can therefore support you and your activities with a comprehensive range of financial and payment services. From current account to escrow, and from treasury to finance. What makes our services extraordinary is our personal approach. With you, our experienced experts view your situation and use the right mix of services to create maximum value for you.

These services are integrated seamlessly into the trust solutions we create for you. Or we can create a package of financial services for you that makes a seamless fit with your overall arrangements.

Services

A tailored package of seamlessly integrated legal and financial services is created, which may comprise any or all of the following:

Financial and payment services

United, via its fully-licensed bank in Curaçao, can support you and your activities with a comprehensive range of financial and payment services, including:​

  • Commercial financial services
  • Private wealth services
  • Securities services
  • Treasury services
  • Carbon services
  • Structured finance services

These services supplement our trust activities and makes us a one-stop shop for trust clients.  But we can also work seamlessly with your other service providers, building a relationship of trust with all parties. 

Escrow and custody

United is an authorised escrow agent. Whatever kind of transaction you are engaging in, we can open an escrow account for you, where cash, securities, title documents etc. are held in escrow until both parties in the deal have met their obligations.

Escrow is a very versatile solution used in a wide range of situations, such as:

  • International trade finance
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Project finance
  • Capital raising
  • Litigation settlement funds
  • Real estate and construction
  • Pension scheme funding

Using our escrow services means that United takes over your counterparty, banking, country and compliance risk. Also, since escrows are non-credit facilities — with no capital costs, low fees and unlimited capacity — they are a cost-effective alternative to credit-based risk solutions such as standby letters of credit.

With United as your escrow agent, your transaction gets settled faster. Our competent and dedicated staff typically get the account set up in 24 to 48 hours. We draw on our range of standard contract templates that are valid under a variety of governing laws and tailor the chosen contract to your specific escrow structure. Our international network guarantees short lines of communication with local parties. The result: a fast and flexible solution that blends seamlessly with your own processes.

Custody

Besides escrow services, United can also offer a longer-term solution for holding assets such as stocks, bonds, precious metals and cash. As your custodian, we guarantee the safekeeping of your assets and perform various related administrative duties, such settling purchases and sales, collecting dividends and coupons and settling withholding tax. Followed, of course, by faultless reporting.

Who we serve

Our financial services supplement our trust activities, making us a one-stop shop for our trust clients – companies, investment industry players or wealthy individuals. 

But if financial services are all you need, we can work seamlessly with your other service providers, building a relationship of trust with all parties.

Open an account with us

United can open a bank account for you with all the options you need. And we can do it quickly – often in 48 hours. This is because we are a lean organisation with short lines of communication and a global, 24/7 work culture.
