CheckVault provides security above and beyond traditional escrow and custodial relationships. Client funds are governed by the terms of our escrow deed, to provide a clear and comprehensive legal framework suitable for all states and territories. To provide further security, client funds are held directly by Perpetual on deposit with ANZ. Under the terms of our tripartite agreement, neither ANZ nor Perpetual may encumber or place a lien over client funds. While on deposit, funds can only be held at call.
Prudent Risk Management
CheckVault has in place numerous operational and risk management policies to ensure its services are delivered in a reliable, timely and transparent manner. These include Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing, Counter-Terrorist Financing (AMLCTF) compliance tand risk management policies. CheckVault also holds public and product liability cover additional to statutory requirements.
Eliminate Systemic and Reputational Risk
CheckVault provides stakeholder protection against systemic risk and cascade failure due to head contractor insolvency. With CheckVault, funds are secured in advance, but not released until contractual preconditions are met. These could include:
- Substantive proof that subcontractors have been paid;
- Proof of settlement of supplier accounts;
- Meeting verifiable and specific project milestones; and
- Independent assessment as to the quality of work.
By securing suppliers in advance, you are providing certainty to your stakeholders without your organisation becoming an unsecured creditor.
