Ascent ProMart Escrow Successfully Helped ICICI Bank Meet Its Ambitions

ICICI Bank

Company profile

One of the Big Four Banks of India, ICICI Bank has subsidiaries, representative offices & branches spread across 16 countries and 4 continents. It facilitates a wide range of transactions, such as:
  • Sale purchase transactions
  • Real estate debt transactions
  • Revenue/profit sharing arrangements
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Project financing & lending arrangements
The bank’s value proposition for the escrow market can be summarized as such:
  • It would be a dedicated product, with legal & operations teams to structure requirements accordingly.
  • It would have a quick turnaround for implementation.
  • Its documentation would be simplified to enhance convenience.
  • It would allow customers to gain viewing access on a single login.
  • Expertise in regulatory & compliance advisory

Challenges

There were many obstacles in the bank’s path to realizing their escrow market ambitions:
  • The manual handling of business operations took a toll on the bank’s efficiency.
  • The escrow management system was not automated, hence making the process complicated & time-consuming.
  • The lack of interfacing between critical processes & the bank’s core system led to further delays in processing.
  • The yearly/monthly reports created for the regulatory authority were collated very hectically due to the lack of automation, leading to further issues.
  • The escrow deal fee collections for transactions, payments, & other related processes were not collected on time.
  • The lack of automated systems and/or standing instructions for scenarios such as Borrower/Lender, Contracts, & TRAs were also a drawback.
