Escrow Agreement


Escrow Agreement
A certificate provided by an approved bank that guarantees the indicated securities are deposited at that particular bank.

For example, an investor who writes a call option and can present an escrow agreement is considered covered. Therefore, the investor doesn't need to meet margin requirements.
